July 18, 1956 - October 17, 2019
Roger Bradley Motheral, 63, loving husband and father, died Thursday surrounded by his family.
Roger Bradley Motheral was born in Fort Worth on July 18, 1956 and passed peacefully after prayer and anointment and moved on to be with the Lord on Thursday, October,17th. He was the third of four children raised by Patricia and Foist Motheral. He graduated from Paschal High School in 1975 and attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, before earning his B.B.A. from Texas Christian University. Roger was a part of the third generation ownership at Motheral Printing, a 73 year old company. Sales came naturally to him. His pure honesty, likeabilitiy, and easy going nature earned him the immediate trust of the many clients that were the life blood of Motheral Printing.
His childhood was filled with lifelong friends, brothers, sisters and cousins at the family compound on Lake Worth, where he loved to water ski and hang out on the boat. At age 15 he met the love of his life, Lisa Patricia Rains, which commenced a 48 year love story. They married in 1980, and devoted their lives to their two children, Austin and Lauren Bailey. He loved to watch his kids play sports and was a fixture at all their games. He had a life long involvement with Colonial Country Club from the “teen room”, to many golf tournament positions to the executive board. He enjoyed the club and it was a staple in his life. Roger was on the Paschal alumni committee and served as the chairman of the alumni tournament for many years. He loved beauty, order, and life’s simple pleasures. He derived great satisfaction from gardening and landscaping and maintaining meticulous and beautiful surroundings. He is remembered by his friends and family as generous, loyal, hard-working, and honest. He will be truly missed.
We appreciate all of the hospital nurses and vitas hospice who helped us with Roger’s care in his final weeks.
