Roger Dale Duke

Roger Dale Duke, a beloved member of the Pine Valley community, has passed away at the age of 72. He was born in Water Valley, MS on June 18, 1951, to Daniel Marion Duke, Sr., and Margaret Sylvia Horton Duke. Roger was a dedicated truck driver who traversed the country many times. Later in life, he delivered building materials locally and hauled cotton during the ginning season. His dedication to his work in the transport industry was evident in every mile he drove.

Beyond his career, Roger had a passion for the outdoors. An avid fisherman, farmer, and mule handler, he found joy in the simplicity of nature and the wholesome activities it offered. His enthusiasm for raising milk goats and tending to his land showcased his deep connection to his roots and the land he called home.

Roger is survived by his daughter Candi Rhea (Steve) of New Albany, MS, who meant the world to him. Together, they shared a bond that transcended a lifetime. Survivors also include brothers David (Barbara) Duke of Scobey and Lynn Duke of Edwards; and sisters Judie (Gary) Davis of Water Valley and Kathy McCharen of Bruce.

In addition to his parents, Roger was preceded in death by a brother, Daniel Duke, Jr., and sisters, Wanda Haase and Ann Perkins.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2024, from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM in the Gardiner Room of Seven Oaks Funeral Home, Water Valley, MS. The funeral service will begin at 12:00 PM in the Henry Chapel with Dr. Shane Crawford officiating. Burial will follow at Tabernacle Cemetery, 2880 Hwy 32, Water Valley.

Roger will be dearly missed by all who knew him, his memory forever etched in the hearts of those who had the privilege of crossing paths with such a kind and gentle soul.
