Rogers was born and educated on St. Helena Island in Beaufort SC. He loved his hometown and often told stories of his adventures on the island. After graduating from high school, Rogers joined the United States Air Force and after 4 years of service, he returned to civilian life. He served the United States Government as a Department of Defense civilian employee before retirement in 2004. His time in service allowed him the opportunity to do what he loved most; travelling (37 different countries), working with computers and experiencing other cultures.
Roger was very friendly, loving and a genuinely caring person. He loved life and was always willing to help others when he could. Often, he was seen doing his Tai Kwan Do moves; he always wanted to stay physically fit. Rogers had a great sense of humor and was often playing practical jokes on the family. Serving God was always a priority and he used the prison ministry as an opportunity to spread the gospel.
Rogers, we will miss your smile, your thoughtfulness, practical jokes and your caring nature. You will forever be etched in our minds and hearts. You will be sadly missed but never forgotten. We love you.

Dearest Papa. You and Connie were the best Father and Mother in Law a girl could ask for. Even though we live in separate countries you have always been very close to my heart and will remain. You were there to support Ellen and me even through your own grieving during the loss of your son Steve. You have been the most welcoming and loving in-laws and your morals and love will continue to live on in your children, grand children and great grand children. Papa I loved your many stories and your commitment and many years of service for your country. I love you and will miss you dearly. Michelle
