My condolences to the Rogers Family on John's passing. I've known John for the 35 years I have spent as a manager in the Holbrook Little League, the last 19 years as Manager of Rogers Club. John was a credit to the league as a manager, it was a pleasure managing his team along with Charles O'Brien. John was a good sponsor, A good manager and most important he was a class person, whom I gladly called a friend. I will miss him greatly.

When I think of Mr. Rogers I get a warm feeling inside as it reminds me of my childhood and hanging out at the Rogers house with Tricia and Susie. I am so blessed to have known him and happy I was able to see him probably 3yrs ago for dinner with Tricia & Dee. I know he is in heaven with our Lord Jesus along side his beautiful wife Irene. God Bless the Rogers family. Love you all forever. Mary
