Roger Lee McComas
Roger Lee McComas, of Hilltop, WV entered his eternal home Saturday, October 26, 2019 at Bowers Hospice House following an illness.
Born April 4, 1950 in Hinton, WV, he was the son of the late Bobby Lee and Wilma Ruth Surbaugh McComas.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife Panella Dee Slaughter McComas, brother Randal Lynn McComas and sister Linda Carol McComas.
Roger was a 1969 graduate of Collins High School. Upon graduating he entered the WV Army National Guard where he was an MP and served for 6 years.
Roger helped his Dad with his business and together they performed concrete jobs all over southern WV. He was an employee for 28 years with the Fayette County Board of Education working as the longtime groundskeeper of the John P. Duda Stadium, custodian at Oak Hill High School and eventually at the board office.
Roger had his own business, Honkytonk Lighting, where he was the light man for several local bands until 2013.
Mr. McComas loved sports and was an avid longtime OHHS Red Devil and WVU Mountaineer fan. If he wasn't at a game you would find him by the radio listening to the broadcast.
Roger was associated with the Dothan Community Church of Dothan, WV. While he was not a member and did not physically attend he was very faithful in participating in the services through their live Facebook feeds. He helped promote the church and witnessed for Christ by inviting others to watch the sermons and lessons online.
Those left to cherish his memory include brothers Michael McComas and wife Sylvia, Austin McComas and wife Linda, Bobby McComas and wife Ruth, sister Cindy Toney and husband Roger, nephews Cameron Toney, Aaron McComas and wife Brittany and their son Braxton; nieces Cierra Toney, Lynn Huddleston with husband Jason and their daughter Katie, Susan McComas and partner Beth Goodyear, and their children Zach and Tatum; Candace Walker and her husband Michael; Amber Willis and her husband Billy, and their children Jayvin and Adia; Savannah Compton and husband Brent and their children Spencer and Cooper along with Roger's faithful companions Bear and Big Jack aka Biggs.
Services will be Saturday, November 2nd at 11:00 am in the chapel of High Lawn Funeral Home.
Friends may call on Friday evening, November 1st at the funeral home from 6-8 pm.
Pallbearers honoring Mr. McComas will be Aaron McComas, Zach McComas, Roger Toney, and Cameron Toney.
The family wishes to thank Fayette County Senior Citizens Meals on Wheels, Putnam County Aging, Inc., Plateau Medical Center, Raleigh General Hospital and Bowers Hospice House. They would also like to thank Melvin Taliferro, Darrell Fuller, Mike Rose and a very special thank you to caregiver Judy Keller.

Roger will be remembered as a hard worker, courteous at all times and did a great job of maintaining the football stadium at Oak Hill.
We were sad to hear that he had been ill.
Judy and I will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.
