Obituary

Roger Raymond Driggers, husband and best friend of 59 years, passed away on October 13, 2021, from a long illness, with his wife beside him.

Roger was a native of Florida and served in the US Navy right out of high school. He later became employed with the city of Lakeland and worked as a line crew foreman of 32 years for Lakeland Electric. After retiring with the City, Roger always had a story to share about those he worked with.

Roger was an avid cyclist, who would often ride over 50 miles a day. He loved cycling on the Florida trails and in the Smokey Mountains, Tennessee. His dogs, Chester and Dudley, were his pride and joy. He often referred to them as "son."
He was predeceased by his parents, Johnnie and Alma, his brothers, Murray and Johnnie, his sister, Mildred, and his daughter in law, Andrea Driggers.

Roger is survived by his wife, Donna Driggers; his three sons, Jeffrey (Gina), Andy and Casey (Nancy) Driggers; his three grandchildren, Carol, Reed and Arabella Driggers.

A graveside service will be at 11:00am, Friday, November 5, 2021, Oak Hill Burial Park, 4620 US Hwy 98S, Lakeland, FL.
