Roger H. Brannon, age 66, a well-known resident of the Greendale Community, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 27, 2008, at his home.



He was born in Greendale, Virginia, on August 28, 1941, a son of the late Robert Lee Brannon and Edith Bott Brannon and lived in Washington County his entire life. He attended Greendale School and was a veteran, serving in the United States Army. He operated service stations in Greendale and Abingdon and was known near and far for his towing service. The sign in front of his service stations "If You Can't Stop Wave", was a trademark that will always be remembered by his customers and friends. Roger was a friend to all and was always ready to help anyone in need. He will be greatly missed by the community and was often referred to as the Mayor of Greendale. He faithfully attended and supported Greendale Chapel and loved his Church.

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his wife, Shirley Reynolds Brannon and one brother Donald L. Brannon.
Survivors include his daughter, Crystal Dawn Brannon of Abingdon; his mother, Edith Bott Brannon of Abingdon; his sister, Diane Coffield and husband Leo, of Bristol, Virginia; a friend whom he always claimed as a brother, Bob Eads of Abingdon; and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
