Roger Rakestraw


Roger was intricately wired by God to be unique and special. All who he touched came to know how special he was. We tried to have an impact on his life; but the reality is he had an impact on ours. Though Roger was a crippled lamb from birth, it is with surety that he was a whole being as he walked into the gates of heaven and into the arms of Jesus.
Roger was a member of the Church of Ascension in Frankfort, Ky.
Roger's homegoing celebration of life service will be held Thursday, Jan. 10 at Stewarts Home School in Frankfort, Ky. 
A private graveside service will be held Friday, Jan. 11. Interment will be in the Burnside Cemetery.
