Roger H. Mayers

Roger H. Mayers, age 79, died peacefully at his home in Alabaster, AL, on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 after a long illness. Roger was born in Amityville, NY, on October 25, 1943, to George Mayers, Jr., and Belle Platt Mayers. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, George Mayers, III. He grew up in Morris, NY and graduated from Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. He was employed for many years as a CEO for Hospital Corporation of America and later Quorum Health. Roger was best known for his love of the outdoors including hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, playing tennis and watching college football, especially “The Oklahoma Sooners”. His love for his wife and children was evident. His sense of humor and being a quick-witted jokester was a trademark, even throughout his illness. Many of his funny stories were about his outdoor adventures with friends, wife, Kaye, his children and grandchildren.

He is survived by his loving wife, Kaye of Alabaster, Alabama, son Todd Mayers of Birmingham, Alabama, daughter Dawn (John) Gorham of Birmingham, Alabama, son Brad Mayers of Fultondale, Alabama, daughter, Stephanie (Brian) Freeman of Nashville, TN, and stepchildren, Julie (Franklin) Morrow of Gainesville, Georgia and stepson, Jason Jay of Gainesville, Georgia. He is also survived by six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Lori Aman of Winter Park, Florida and his brother, Kenneth (Michele) Mayers of Cumming, Georgia, and many nieces and nephews. His personality filled up a room and he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

 His Celebration of life services will be at Pelham Church of God in Pelham, Al, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, 2023. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pelham Church of God Pelham, AL, The Lewy Body Foundation, and/or Amedysis Hospice of Birmingham, Al.

    34 years ago, you became my husband. no matter how many years we would have had together, it would never have been enough. As your sister, Lori, said “you were a treasure” and loved beyond measure. You knew my love for you (which was intense) and I knew the same love from you. You will always be my love and my sweetheart and I
    Look forward to the day I can see you again. Until then, my heart will grieve but I hold you close always my love, my best friend.

    This song we used to sing in church as children came to me as I thought of Roger and the way he lived his life and fought such a terrible disease.

    “Swing wide the gates
    I’m coming home
    Swing wide the gates
    I’m one of His own
    I’ve fought a good fight, I’ve kept the faith
    Amazing grace has won the race!
    Swing wide the gates
    I’m coming home”

    I do believe he is home with his Lord and Savior. He will be truly missed and I’m so thankful to him for being such a wonderful husband to my precious sister.

    He’s home now, so please remember Kaye & his children and grandchildren in your prayers. He loved them with all of his heart and each one is going to feel such a huge void in their life. We loved you Roger, but we know we will see you again.❤️

    I work closely with Stephanie and while I did not have the opportunity to meet Roger, I would have loved the opportunity to thank him (& Kaye) because because their daughter, Stephanie, is one of the most supportive, helpful, and understanding people I have had the opportunity to know.

    Roger, it is obvious that you will continue to be very much loved and missed, and I pray that your family will continue to feel your love with when reminiscing, spending time in the outdoors, and even through college football season.

    Sending prayers for Kaye, Stephanie, Todd, Dawn, Brad, Julie, Jason, Lori, Kenneth, and the entire Mayers family. While I know there is nothing I could say that would ease the hurt and difficulty of this time, please know you all are in our thoughts and will continue to have love, prayers, and support coming your way from Nashville, TN/Huntsville, AL
