He truly loved the Lord and was never hesitant to tell you about Jesus or invite someone to church. He wanted to see everyone saved and serving the Lord. He was a longtime member and deacon at New Antioch Baptist Church.
He worked at Clay Foodland for 34 years, where he never knew a stranger. He started working at Clay Board of Education as a bus driver in 2003 and later transitioned into the bus garage as a mechanic.
He is preceded in death by his dad, Bobby Rogers and father-in-law, Bubby Runion, and many other relatives he loved dearly.
He is survived by the love of his life, his soulmate Carolyn; his pride and joys John Boy (Samantha) Rogers and Jessica (Shawn) Huffman; and his biggest blessings, his grandchildren Bobby, Brandon, Skylar, Bentlee, Jaylee, and Baylee. He is also survived by his mother, Brenda Kyle; sisters Timberly (Corky) Hamrick, Tammy (Robin Sizemore); brother William (Julie) Rogers; mother-in-law Louise Runion; and many brother and sister in laws, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, and cousins.
He was a wonderful husband, dad, papaw, son, son-in-law, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, friend, co-worker, and person in general. He always knew how to put a smile on everyone’s face. He loved with his whole heart and will be missed tremendously.
