He had suffered serious injuries during a fall at home the week prior and spent several days in intensive care at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Roger was born on October 8, 1949, at Oakdale in Morgan County, to Rev. Harold C. and Inez (Powers) Jones, and moved to Crossville in 1984. He owned and operated a masonry contracting company and helped construct hundreds of buildings at Fairfield Glade and the surrounding area.

He was a longtime fan of the Tennessee Volunteers and attended many football games over the years. Roger was very active at Pine Eden Baptist Church in Crossville, where he loved to sing in the choir.
