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.
