Bobby Dean Rogers

WEATHERFORD — Surrounded by family and friends, Bobby Dean “Bob” Rogers, passed on peacefully Saturday, November 23, 2013, due to complications of Alzheimer’s disease.

Funeral Service: 2 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church of Weatherford.

Interment: 12:30 p.m. Friday at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery.

Visitation was Monday at White’s Funeral Home, 130 Houston Avenue, Weatherford.

Memorials: The family requests donations are made to the general budget fund of First Baptist Church of Weatherford or for the Bob Rogers Clean Water Fund for Haiti. Please make checks to The Safe Place and mail to 3944 Parkhaven Drive, Denton, Texas 76210 (please leave memo line blank).

Bob was born in Oakland, Okla., the seventh of eight boys to William and Gertrude Rogers and was the last surviving brother of that family.

On leave from the Air Force in 1948, he found time to court, win and marry what he described as the prettiest girl in his hometown, Bobbie Duncan, of Cumberland, Okla. Bobbie is the daughter of R.C. and Edna Duncan of Cumberland, now both deceased.

Bob left Madill High School and the sports he loved (he played football and basketball as a Madill Wildcat), his senior year, as soon as he was old enough to join his older brothers in the war effort.

While in the Air Force, he attained the highest rank of an enlisted man, Chief Master Sergeant. Bob served his country in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Cold War. While working in supply, it was his task to make sure our troops had the supplies to do their jobs. During many years of the Cold War it was his job to keep B52 airplanes supplied with the parts to keep them flying with their nuclear payloads. He was very proud that he had distinguished himself and served his country honorably. Upon his retirement from a successful career in the United States Air Force he settled in Weatherford. He was a resident there for 45 years. In Parker County, Bob found the permanent home his years in the service and many moves had denied him. He dearly loved his neighbors and friends he found there, but never forgot his Oklahoma roots.
