October 25, 1956 - April 19, 2022
Rev. Roger Lee McGee, 65, of Alexandria, Va,. passed away unexpectedly on April 19, 2022 at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital after injuries sustained in an accident. For the last 27 years, Roger has served as Pastor for Music and Worship at First Baptist Church of Alexandria. Over the years, he has led tens of thousands of people in worshiping Jesus every Sunday, and impacted thousands more through his music ministry. Roger was responsible for leading more than 400 people from toddlers to seniors in choirs, an orchestra, bands, and a technology team. He led mission trips to nearly every continent, as well as hundreds of concerts and community events more locally. He previously served at Ashley River Baptist Church in Charleston, S.C. for 10 years, and at Forest Hills Baptist Church in Anderson, S.C. for five years. Roger lived an extraordinary life that was shaped by his devotion to God. Born in Heidelberg, Germany on Oct. 25, 1956, he was adopted and raised by Ollie James and Flora Belle McGee in Selma, Ala. He attended Southside High School and Shiloh Baptist Church in Selma before going on to pursue a Bachelor of Music Education at Samford University (’79). While pursuing his Master’s degree in Church Music (Conducting/Ministry) from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., he met his beloved wife Suzanne (née South). Roger and Suzanne were married for 36 years before she preceded him into heaven in 2017. Roger is survived by his sister, Rhonda Mobley (David); his two sons, Corey (Liz) and Casey (Aislyn) McGee; and his granddaughter, Avery McGee. Roger’s fun-loving nature, selflessness, kindness, patience, warmth and passion for Christ can never be replaced. His family, friends, and church community will miss him more than words can say. A visitation will be held on Friday, April 29 from 4:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary of First Baptist Church of Alexandria at 2932 King St in Alexandria, Va. A memorial service will be held the following day, on Saturday, April 30 at the same location at 11:00 a.m., followed by a reception in the church’s Faith Activities Center at 1:00 p.m. For those who cannot attend Roger’s memorial service in person, it will be live-streamed at https://www.facebook.com/firstbaptistalexandria/live https://fbcalexandria.org/live-stream In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the First Baptist of Alexandria Foundation: Suzanne McGee Fund, or to First Baptist Church of Alexandria.
