Obituary

Robert Jack Rogers
Reedville, Virginia
December 19, 1937 - June 2, 2020


On June 2, 2020, Bob Rogers, loving husband and proud veteran, peacefully passed away at the age of 82 in his home in Reedville, Virginia.

Bob was born on December 19, 1937 in Decatur, Alabama to Buck and Cindy Rogers. Bob grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and later lived in Long Island, North Carolina on Lake Norman. He went on to serve his country as a member of the 20th Special Forces Group, and he attended Infantry Officer Basic School and Airborne Training at Fort Benning in Georgia. He happily spent the rest of his career as a manufacturer’s representative in the marine industry.

Bob attended Fairport Baptist Church and was a member of the American Legion, Post 117 of Reedville, Virginia. He was also a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Camp 584. Each Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day for the past few years, he would place flags on the graves of Confederate soldiers in Reedville’s Roseland Cemetery. An avid reader of military and Civil War history, Bob was always eager to learn new things that he could share with those around him. He left his loved ones with a treasure trove of odd knowledge, life lessons, and happy memories.

Bob was proud of his southern roots, which was further reflected in his love of blues and Carolina shag music; he regularly attended weekly dances hosted by the Northern Neck Shag Club in Kilmarnock, Virginia. When he wasn’t inside reading or dancing, he could usually be found outdoors hunting for birds, gardening in his yard, or fishing on his boat. His dog, Lulu, was more than just a faithful companion on his many adventures - she was his shadow.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Maurice “Buck” and Estlee “Cindy” Rogers. He is survived by his wife, Karen Rogers; his son, Scott Rogers and wife, Vickie, of Denver, North Carolina; his son Mark Rogers and wife, Victoria, of Topsail Beach, North Carolina; and his brother, Donald Rogers and wife, Margie, of Plant City, Florida. He is also survived by his bonus children, Alicia Blair and husband, Joe, of Lewes, Delaware; Melissa Sekula of Reedville, Virginia; and Michael Bousman and wife, Alicia, of Annapolis, Maryland. Bob had 6 grandchildren, Chris Rogers, Lauren Combs, Thomas Rogers, Jacob Wilkerson, Samantha Bousman and Haley Bousman, as well as other extended family members. Bob also had countless friends all over the east coast, but his two childhood friends, Buddy McKinney and Ronnie Oakly, were like brothers to him.

A service will be held for the family and friends, and he will rest eternally in Roseland Cemetery in Reedville, Virginia. Bob’s family would like to thank his friends and the Church for the outpouring of love, support, and food. Bob knew how blessed he was to be surrounded with people who filled his life with love, and he truly loved his life.
