He was born in Keene, NH, to Philip and Effie (Knight) Rogers, and grew up in the town of Marlow, NH. He served in the United States Air Force, and graduated from Keene State College in 1951. He began his teaching career in a two-room schoolhouse in Plainfield, NH. He also taught in the Meriden School for two years before moving to a position at Windsor High School where he taught for eight years. He went to the Bellows Falls Union High School where he taught mathematics for the remaining 21 years of his teaching career. He worked as a painter for many years before his retirement.
His was an avid sportsman, and enjoyed hunting and fishing. When he wasn’t hunting or fishing, he enjoyed talking about hunting and fishing. He shared his love of the sport with his sons, and they in turn took extraordinary efforts to assure that he was able to hunt the past several years even as his health declined.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to neighbors Patty and John Lamoureux, the visiting nurses, and Bayada hospice nurses who all made it possible for him to remain in his home until his death.
Calling hours will be on December 31st at 1 pm at the Stringer Funeral Home in Claremont, NH followed by a Memorial Service at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the NH Wildlife Federation or charity of your choice.
