THOMASVILLE-Roger Dale Mashburn, 63, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 10, 2021, after a courageous and valiant fight with cancer. His wife and step-daughter were by his side.
He was born April 7, 1958 in Haywood County, a son of Clova Lee Mashburn and the late Odell Mashburn. He attended True Gospel Baptist Church and was employed at TranSource, as long as his health permitted. Dale was a man that would give the shirt off of his back to anyone and he was always putting others needs before his own. He never met a stranger and he enjoyed making people smile. He also enjoyed singing, playing his bass guitar and fishing. His true love and passion was his Lord, the little ones, who always put a smile on his face, and most of all, Libby’s sweet treats. In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Steve Edward Mashburn and Gary Ronnie Mashburn.
Dale is survived by his wife, Elizabeth “Libby” Mashburn, who relentlessly took care of him during his illness.; his step-son, Jonathan Shuskey and his wife, Teresa, of Fort Mitchell, Alabama and his step-daughter, Jennifer Johnson and her husband, Chip, of Kernersville, NC, whom he loved like his own; his mother, Clova Lee Mashburn of Trinity; his brothers, Dean Mashburn and his wife, Jennifer, of Pawley’s Island, SC, James Mashburn of Trinity and Jerry Mashburn and his wife, Peggy, of Randleman. Also surviving are his grandchildren, Danielle and Connor of Kernersville, Austin, Bella, Addison and Aiden of Fort Mitchell, Alabama; his great grandson, Jaivyn Bailey of Kernersville; several nieces and nephews; and the two special little boys, Braxton and Bryson, who lived across the street and loved their “Mr. Dale.”
A service to celebrate Dale’s life will be held on Thursday October 14, at 2:00 pm, at Landmark Baptist Church, with Pastor Amos Mashburn and Pastor Rick Shoemaker of True Gospel Baptist Church, officiating. The committal service will follow in the church cemetery. His family will receive friends from 11:45 a.m. until 1:45 p.m., at the church.
