AFCT Texas will be holding a memorial ride to honor Roger Heard. The 42-mile ride will be taking place on Saturday morning, Nov. 20, 2021 in Schertz, Texas. The route will cover the same route Roger last rode, with a stop at his memorial site to pay respects.It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of fellow rider, Christian, servant leader, loving husband and father, Roger Heard. We’re not sure exactly what happened, but he was doing one of his favorite activities, riding with his beloved Texas team.Everyone who knew Roger has beautiful memories of him. On team rides, he was the one of the strongest riders, but he always floated to the back to ride with the slowest riders for a while, then would book to the front to see if anyone needed help along the way. He would do this back and forth the entire ride, helping folks, and putting in lots of extra miles. Just a couple weeks before RAGBRAI, the Texas team was doing a 77-mile training ride. One of our members was having a hard time, and Roger stayed with him until the member was able to safely get a ride home. Then Roger steamed ahead to join the rest of the team. This was typical Roger. Three of our team members rode the century loop with Roger on RAGBRAI last year. After a brief stop at Beekman’s Ice Cream, Roger decided to do the loop again in case others needed help. Roger didn’t just help people with mechanical issues, he talked with us, cared about us, and developed meaningful relationships with others. He was never in a hurry to leave – he was always there for anyone. “I am sure Roger would like us to know that he is in heaven with his savior, Jesus Christ. He had a strong faith,” said June Lindner. “In fact, two days before his passing on to heaven, my husband and I were talking to him after an Orange Theory Fitness workout. He said he had a long bike ride the day before and spent the time talking with God, looking for direction in an area of his life. He had a continuing closeness to his God that carried him through life. He wasn’t a Sunday Christian – he walked with God, loved others, and served people as a way of life every day.” It will be painful at times, to ride RAGBRAI without Roger. But he would like us to remember that even though RAGBRAI is a very physical event, it is mostly relational. We are there to help each other along the way, and ride slow enough to have conversations with people. We take our time in towns to listen to others, make new friends, and really care about our fellow human beings. We truly hope we can honor Roger by loving and serving others as he did. We pray for his beautiful wife Marion, and his two daughters. May God bless them and give them comfort and peace.Air Force Cycling Team Texas ... See MoreSee Less
