Roger Sarvis

February 10, 1976 –
 March 27, 2022


Roger Sarvis, 46, of Dallas, Texas, passed away March 27, 2022, after an illness.

Roger was born February 10, 1976, in Marion, SC. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, and his parents, Donnie Leo Sarvis, Jr. and Janette Dawn Sarvis (West), and a brother, Donnie Leo Sarvis III.

He was named after quarterback Roger Staubach, but he did not have a middle name because his parents could not agree on one. His father wanted his middle name to be Pearson, but his mother felt that this was taking his love of the Dallas Cowboys too far. Roger sometimes complained about his name, but he also admitted that it was unique.  

He graduated from South Florence High School in 1994, where he participated in performing arts and provided illustrations for school publications. 

Rog, as he was known to his family and friends, was a talented singer, songwriter, musician, and gifted artist. He loved to perform, and he was especially fond of making people laugh. He posted music and comedy on his YouTube channel. He also enjoyed reading, gaming, and watching movies and various series. He dreamed of camping with his family, but had yet to make that dream a reality.  He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Dallas. 

Over the years, he worked in a bowling alley, as a radio DJ, as a cake decorator in a grocery store bakery, in a comic book store, and more recently, at Dee’s Doggie Den, a daycare for dogs. However, after his daughter was born in 2020, he became the stay-at-home Papa, caring for his little girl.

He is survived by his partner in life and love, Dorothy Fischer, and daughter, Freja Belle, of Dallas, Texas. Other survivors include a brother, David McLaughlin of Florence, SC; a sister and brother-in-law, Elizabeth and Michael Banks of Villa Rica, GA; and a sister and brother-in-law, Casandra and Warren Kersey of Latta, SC. A number of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews also survive. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider making a donation to a GoFundMe to help Dorothy pay for childcare and other expenses that may arise. 

A celebration of life event will be held Tuesday, April 5, at 7:00 PM (CDT) at Zion Lutheran Church located at 6121 E Lovers Ln, Dallas, TX 75214.

    I will miss Roger. We had or differences at times but we always made peace. I wished he had been closer and we could have done alot of the things he wanted to do like camping which we did alot of when we were young.

    I’m forever going to miss him. He was like an uncle to me ever since I was a kid. He was such a bright soul and was so so loved by everyone.

    It is a dark, sad, lonely world
    without your light to shine.
    Forever. I love you little brother

    Roger was a good friend of my brother, Sean Boyett, who also passed away too soon. Roger was always funny and kind to me when we were younger. I am so sorry for your loss.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
