Obituary for Rev. Roger L. Booker

Rev. Roger L. Booker was born to Alf Booker, Jr., and Mary Jones Booker on June 10, 1941 in Coffeeville, Mississippi. He confessed in Christ at an early age, at Moorse Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church in Coffeeville, Mississippi. Even though he heard God's call at an early age, he did not answer the call to the ministry until many years later.

Rev. Booker joined the military after graduating from high school. After 20 years of honorable service in the United States Air Force, he retired in San Antonio, Texas where he joined St. Paul United Methodist Church. (It is worth noting that because of his tenacity, while in the military he earned a Bachelor Applies Arts and Sciences from Southwest Texas State College, San Marcos, Texas.)

At St. Paul United Methodist Church, he served on the Steward Board and was a member of the Methodist Men's Group. It was during this time that he accepted his call into the ministry. He enrolled in a course of study as required by the United Methodist Church under the supervision of Rev. Fred Craven. After completion of his studies, Rev. Booker received his Local Preachers License on March 20, 1988. On May 1, 1988 he organized and established Caleb African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. The first A.M.E. Zion Church in San Antonio, Texas.

While serving as the Pastor of Caleb A.M.E. Zion Church, he was also serving our government as a Civil Servant at Randolph Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. He was also an active member of Mighty Men of Valor, San Antonio Methodist Ministers Alliance and the The Katie Project.

Rev. Booker was not only a great man of God, but also a great person. He was affectionately called "Rev B". He was exceptionally gifted in carpentry and figuring out how to make things work. He never withheld his talents. One could call on him anytime, day or night for guidance or assistance. He will be greatly missed.

Cherishing his memory are his wife, children, stepchildren, brother and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Preceding him in death is his father, mother and sister.
