Roger Fudge Sr. Obituary

Roger A. Fudge Sr., at 79, was called Home to our Precious Lord and Savior on December 15, 2023.  He was born on July 24, 1944 in Milwaukee, WS to Mattie Ruth (Caldwell) Fudge and Frank Fudge. He was the third eldest of 14 children. At the age of 10, the family moved to Montezuma, GA where he attended Frederick Douglas school. While in the 10th grade, Roger needed to leave high school to work in order to help support his younger siblings.

The enormity of this responsibility allowed Roger to gain the confidence and independence to explore a career in the Navy at age19 where he also gained his GED.  While stationed in Newport, RI, Roger met Barbara and her cousin Maydell at a James Brown concert. He later married Barbara and they had 3 children, Robin Guerra (David), Aleemou Akadeer (Roger A. Fudge II) and Ronda Fudge and Nicole Randolph.  In 1991, Barbara and Roger divorced and he continued his career as a Master Carpenter, which he continued through to his retirement at age 62.

Roger continued to exercise his creative talents taking on highly detailed carpentry projects for clients, refurbishing and building furniture.  He also took on one of his favorite activities he enjoyed as a teenager with his sister Rosetta and that is dancing!  With this, he became a dance instructor all through Rhode Island and was featured in News articles. 

He had a lifelong love of animals and his terrier, Boo Boo, was a huge part of his heart and soul.  Well before and through the earlier part of Roger’s health struggles, Boo Boo was his loyal companion and the loss of his dog was a tipping point.  His health battle took him through some of the hardest times of his life but he was loved through this process. He fought hard through the end with his loving family by his side.  He’s in GOD’s hands now and we remember him with strength and courage.

Roger is survived by his Children: Robin, Allemou, Ronda and Nicole; Grandchildren: Raquel, Appolonia, Rebekah, Joshua, Abigail, Nadthir, Ammar, Sephia, Juma, Asantewaa & Oluwa, (Sade- deceased); Great-Grandchildren: Ailanna, Papi, Carter, Harlow, Ava, Zayre; Siblings: James, Rosetta, Freddie, Gregory, Elizabeth, Gary, Jerome, Curtis & Michael (Frank, Wilbur, Tulu, Johnny, Melvin, Bobby- all deceased).
