Phillip Frank Rogers
1942 ~ 2011
Phillip Frank Rogers began his life in Perryton, Texas, on September 8, 1942, and after a valiant fight against numerous physical problems, succumbed to cancer on Sunday, March 20, in Casa Grande, Arizona . His loving and devoted wife of 19 years, Lynne, was with him at the time of his death. Phil is survived by his sister, Linda Rogers Pointer of Perryton, TX; his son Jeffrey Rogers of Sequim; and son Patrick Rogers, his wife, Stephanie and grandson Sage, all of Battleground, WA.
Born to Oliver Cromwell Rogers and Geneva Juanita Green-Rogers of Perryton, Texas. Phil remained in Texas, farming through most of his life. He graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and married Abbie Lynn Rogers-Wood,
mother of his two sons in whom he took great pride.
Later, Phil married the former Lynne Reed of Dallas who was his inspiration, helpmate, best friend and love. Through recent years, she was his devoted caregiver and source of his positive attitude. Phil and Lynne moved to Sequim in 2002, became active in the Newcomers’ Club and other charitable causes including Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army. During their residence in Sequim, Phil became Treasurer of the Sequim Senior Activity Center where he initiated the Center’s first computerized accounting system. He greatly enjoyed the friendship of his colleagues at the Senior Center and considered his work there an accomplishment helpful to the community. Phil and Lynne also became enthusiastic and generous supporters of The Sequim Guild benefiting
Seattle Children’s Hospital.
In November 2009, with his health deteriorating rapidly, Phil and Lynne moved to Casa Grande, AZ, to be in a warmer, drier climate. There, he received a diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and was told he might have only a short time to live. Given excellent treatment from his doctors and devoted care and emotional support from wife, Lynne, Phil’s life was enhanced and stretched for another year and a half.
