Roger, born on October 18, 1955, in Oklahoma City, OK, was the beloved son of Maxine and the late Roscoe Lacy. He united at an early age with St. John CME Church under the guidance of the late Rev. Curtiss Long.
Roger's educational journey began at Culbertson Elementary School and Moon Jr. High School, culminating in his proud graduation from Douglass High School in 1973. Fueled by a profound belief in the transformative power of education, Roger pursued higher learning, attending Oscar Rose College, then obtaining his bachelor’s degree in business marketing and later achieving a Masters in Education from the University of Oklahoma.
In 1975, Roger answered the call to serve his country and enlisted in the United States Air Force, where he served with honor for four years. Following his honorable discharge, he continued contributing his skills to Tinker Air Force Base. Roger's passion for mathematics led him to a fulfilling career in teaching, where he dedicated himself to imparting knowledge until his health declined.
On April 16, 1983, Roger married Kathy and their union was blessed with a son, Brandon Lacy, who became the pride and joy of Roger's life. He took great pride in being a father and supported his son in all his endeavors.
In addition to his numerous accomplishments, Roger Keith Lacy was a man of many passions and talents that enriched the lives of those around him. An avid domino player, he found joy in organizing the annual family reunion domino tournament in Chandler, Oklahoma. This event became a cherished tradition, bringing family members together for friendly competition and creating lasting memories.
Roger assumed the role of the family historian, diligently preserving the essence of family through his collection of photos and videos from various gatherings and special events. His commitment to preserving these moments ensured that the family's rich history would be treasured and remembered. Roger also had a strong love for music, especially rhythm and soul. His passion and appreciation for R&B, funk, soul, and more would inspire him to create and share albums with various friends and family.
In celebrating Roger's life, let us remember the joy he found in the clinking of dominoes, the preservation of family memories, and the soulful music that filled the air. His dedication to education, service to the nation, and unwavering love for family and friends created a legacy that will endure in the hearts and minds of all who had the privilege of knowing him.
Roger was preceded in death by his father, Roscoe Lacy, Sr., two sisters, Rhonda Lacy and Pamela Garrett, one brother, Brian Lacy, and one nephew, Dwight Lacy.
He leaves behind a legacy of love and memories cherished by his mother, Maxine Lacy; son, Brandon; stepdaughter Tanesia; four grandchildren, Tiana, Jamari, Isaiah, and Israel; two sisters, Rosalind Lacy of Dallas, TX, and Connie Ealy of Del City, OK; one brother, Roscoe Lacy, Jr. of Dallas, TX; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, and friends.
May Roger’s legacy continue to inspire and bring comfort to those who knew and loved him.
