Paul Nolan Rogers

October 5, 1934December 13, 2018

Paul Nolan Rogers, 84, of Little Rock, passed away December 13, 2018. He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on October 5, 1934 to Cloys and Ona Rea (Beeson) Rogers. He was preceded in death by his parents; step- father, Carl Elridge; son, Paul Rogers Jr. “Buster”. He is survived by four daughters, Karen Akins (Bill), Pamela Smith, Cheryl Yarbrough, Kim Thomas (Clyde), and one step- daughter, Joni Yarnell; two sisters, Diane Mayernick and Janice Taylor (C.D.); brother, Billy H. Rogers (Barbara); nine grandchildren; fourteen great- grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews who adored him. Paul retired from Western Electric, and worked for Pulaski County Probation and Parole. He was always a good steady working man when he wasn’t chasing a golf ball. Paul had been a friend of Bill W. for 48 years. Two other friends were brothers Benny and Doyle. Sometimes late at night, Paul and Doyle would sit by the creek and harmonize to good ole Gospel songs while Leo strummed his guitar. Benny and rest of the gang knew they couldn’t sing so when they weren’t pushing each other into the creek, they sat around and meditated on life. When Paul and his brother Billy got together they enjoyed telling old stories about themselves and people they knew. Some were serious but most were silly! The last thing Billy said to Paul in hospice was, “Do you want to climb Pinnacle Mountain this afternoon?” Paul answered, “No, because I already climbed it this morning.” Paul has now climbed the highest mountain of all- the stairway to HEAVEN.

To The Family Of Paul Rogers:

You have lost a "Grand Member" of your family. I have known Paul for over sixty years, working with him at Western Electric for over thirty years. Paul was one of the best friends I ever had. We had a group of Western Electric Retirees that got together about once a week and traveled to different golf courses - sometimes staying overnight. We did have us a bunch of fun reminiscing when we use to work together and talking about how old we were getting.

My thoughts and prayers are with Paul's Family and we will certainly miss "our" Paul.

My Uncle Paul will be greatly missed. He was a fun person to be around. I remember as a kid he had a gruff voice but his heart was as soft as a teddy bear’s. He would say to the younger kids “you better come see your uncle Paul or I’m gonna cut your ears off”. He wouldn’t hurt a flea though. He called my oldest grandson “Dutch” (Jorda) because when he was little he couldn’t understand a word he said!! He called my oldest daughter, “Dutch’s” mom, “Malcolm” (Mallorie). He loved us and we all loved him. The last time I saw him in the hospital I told him that he better behave and mind the doctors and nurses or I was gonna cut his ears off!! He grinned really big and told me he loved me. Until we meet again, Uncle Paul, I love you! Love Carla💕

Martha and I wish to express our deepest sympathy to the Rogers family. Paul was a friend and fellow worker at Western Electric and always displayed a good sense of humor. May God's peace and comfort rest upon the family.
