Roger spent his entire life devoted to his family business. Farming was a passion. As a farmer he liked to say “I’ve made 53 crops.” During his time farming, Roger worked daily side by side his brothers Tony and Mike along with their daddy. Roger was innovative and hard working. His optimism, dedication, and sense of humor was contagious. Roger had many many friends throughout the farming community. He and his partners were strong advocates of the boll weevil eradication project. Roger also recognized early on that in order for Campbell Farms to survive and thrive they had to diversify and implement farming practices that were as environmentally friendly as possible.
