So very sorry for your loss. I worked with Frank at OFO. He always had a smile and a kind word, Loved working with him and missed him when he retired. I think of Frank and Theresa every Christmas. They gave us a really cute Christmas decoration that we put up every year. Makes me smile every time I put it up. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To Frank’s family,

We first met Frank while attending mass at St. Mary’s many years ago. I had noticed a bumper sticker on his car indicating 1st Marine Division. During the many talks we had about his military service I learned that as a teenager he saw combat at both Peleliu and Okinawa during World War II. Always quiet and humble, Frank Rogers is a perfect example of what has been called America’s “Greatest Generation”. It was an honor to know such a wonderful man. May God bless him.
