DECATUR — Roger Dale Manley of Decatur passed away on June 27, 2020. At the family’s request, there will be a private graveside service on Wednesday at Roselawn Cemetery. Service will be officiated by Reverend Larry Crumpton, and special music will be provided by Mike and Bonnie Mitchell. The celebration of life will be at a later date due to COVID-19.
