Roger Stikeleather Obituary

            Mr. Roger Dale Stikeleather, age 74, of Stony Point, unexpectantly went to his eternal home on Saturday, February 3, 2024 at Gordon Hospice House.

            He was born May 1, 1949 in Iredell County, the son of the late Wade and Lucy Stikeleather.

            Dale was a faithful member of Unity Christian Church in Stony Point. He loved the Lord and through his relationship with Christ, was able to love others unconditionally and always accepted others just as they were. His family considered him the hands and feet of Jesus. He loved a big family and instilled in each and every one of them the importance of hard work, but also how to have fun.

            His hobbies consisted of hunting, fishing, boat rides on the lake, shark’s teeth hunting at the beach, golf cart rides, horseback riding, and many other things. He loved the outdoors.
