Support requested for the family Rodger Bayless II

This fund is set up for the parents of Rodger Bayless II, age 50, who passed away unexpectedly September 13, 2019 in Hutchinson, KS.

The funds received will assist them in covering the expenses of the funeral, headstone, transfer of personal items and remains. Rodger had no life insurance to help with these expenses. He will be inurned at North Cemetery in Geneseo, IL. All donations that exceed the amount needed for Rodger will be put in a fund for his son, Kayne’s future education.

 The visitation will be Sunday September 29, 2019 from noon to 2 pm at Stackhouse-Moore Funeral Home. From to 2-5 p there will be a Celebration of life at the Community Center in Geneseo, IL.

 Rodger worked as an aircraft mechanic at West Palm Beach Airport. There he had a work accident that caused cervical and lumbar surgeries. Even after surgeries he was still in pain. He made the best of his new life, even if limited. Rodger was a big hearted guy and always helping others. He was a loved son, brother and father. He loved his son Kayne and enjoyed their time together, especially fishing together. He also enjoyed the outdoors and hunting. Rodger was an avid Illini, Bears and Cardinal fan.

 This is the second child that Rodger and Colleen have lost. They are still bereaved at their loss of Melissa Bayless Six to a long battle with drugs and alcohol. She was 36.

Rodger and Colleen appreciate your thoughtfulness, kindness and generous support.
