Roger Mockford Waters
February 21, 1951 ~ July 23, 2023 (age 72) 72 Years Old
Roger Mockford Waters passed away on July 23rd, 2023 at the age of 72. He was born in Waldron, England in 1951. He came to the United States in 1984 where he lived for the rest of his life. In 2021, Roger and his wife Olga moved to Signal Mountain and fell in love with the area. He is survived by his wife Olga, three sons Eric, Philip, and David as well as his two brothers Grant and Andrew.
He was predeceased by his father, Eric Waters, and mother, Ida Waters, of Sussex, England.
Roger began his 47 year career in nuclear energy with the National Nuclear Corporation in the United Kingdom. He worked at various nuclear facilities across the United States. In retirement, he continued consulting in the nuclear field until his passing. He took great pride in his work and was highly regarded within the industry.
He started every day by embracing it fully with joy! Roger loved Jesus and was looking forward to becoming more active at Calvary Chapel Chattanooga. Roger chose to serve and lived with a servant's heart; he was deeply aware of how to best support others and was committed to spending his time supporting his wife, family and community in whatever way necessary. Roger also supported various international health clinics with a particular focus in Uganda and the Dominican Republic.
Roger loved traveling, reading, hiking, cooking, walking in his neighborhood with the family dog Tobi, and working on home improvement projects.
