Dear Mrs Rogers, Gerard, Chris, Stephen, Mary Alyce and John (and spouses and grandchildren), I am saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Rogers and offer my deepest condolences. Since I grew up across the street from your family I have many fond memories of him. One came to me this morning of Mr. Rogers going to Stanley’s bakery every Sunday morning and buying crullers and jelly donuts for all. Mr Rogers was formidable yet kind, fun, loving and generous to many. My father valued his relationship with Mr Rogers and considered him to be one of his best friends. I always admired his strength and devotion to his family, especially to his beautiful daughter Julie. Mr Rogers made this world a better place and will be missed by many. Love, June Canavan Taylor and family ( Doug, Ryan, Patrick & Matthew)

Jack Rogers was the father of one of my best friends (Stephen) and one of the best friends of my father. He and his family lived in the house directly across the street from my family on Leeside Drive in Great River for about six years. Six great years! Captain Jack was strict but fun; tough but lovable. He and Carol raised some pretty smart kids. Once they moved to Virginia I didn't see them much but I did see them occasionally. It was always a pleasure get a chance to talk to him and Carol again. At a party about ten or twelve years ago -- after I'd been on a distressingly turbulent flight -- I asked: "Mr. Rogers, I just had a terrible flight. I find bad turbulence to be very scary. You're a pilot. You fly all the time. Is there some sort of mental outlook that you've developed to cope with bad turbulence?" He looked at me and said: "It scares the hell out of me, too!" I never called him "Jack," he was always "Mr. Rogers" to me. He was someone I looked up to and respected. I will miss him.

Grieve because you have a heart and are human, but grieve as a person of faith. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, and I will follow Jacks's request and support the local hospice vs. send flowers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Carol I am sad at the passing of Jack. I knew him very briefly when we both volunteered at Faith in Action. We both chatted a few times after Sunday Mass. I recall he always went to Daily Mass. He was a good man; he will be very much missed here and may his soul rest in The Peace of christ.
