Wesley Houston “Hoot” Rogers
Wesley Houston “Hoot” Rogers was born March 11, 1943 in Davis to the late Charley Camrel and Ruth Estelle (Payne) Rogers, Sr. He received an offer from his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on October 25, 2019, that he couldn’t refuse; as he was invited to rejoin family and friends, he had not seen in a long time.
Hoot and Janice Jolly were Davis high school sweethearts. They were married on May 17, 1961 in Marietta and began their family with twin girls, Sherri and Terri, who preceded Hoot in death. Hoot is survived by his wife, Janice and three sons. Mark Rogers and wife Shelly; their daughter, Haley McAdoo and husband Drew, who are expecting their first child; and one son, Haydn Rogers. Mike Rogers and wife Carolyn; their three children, Austin Rogers and wife Shelby, and daughter Rowyn; son, Jerico Rogers; and daughter, Kendal Rogers, and her soon to be born daughter, Indy. Jeff Rogers and wife Julie; their two sons, Lane Boven and wife Hannah and Shane Boven and wife Selest.
He also leaves behind one brother, W.A. England; a sister Charlene Tigert; sister-in-law, Robbie Rogers; as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents and twin daughters, Hoot was preceded in death by one brother, Charley Camrel “Gub” Rogers, Jr.on May 29, 2019.
Hoot and Janice loved each other with true dedication and fulfilled every vow they made -sickness, health, richer, poorer, till death temporarily parts them.
The true value of Hoot cannot be put into words, but is powerfully validated by the many wonderful friends, neighbors and family members who came together to share and care through this very difficult time. To all these special people, he would love to be sitting on the front porch to welcome you, shake your hand and say, “Much oblige”. He leaves behind a beautiful legacy as an overly polite, kind, honest, true-blue, stellar example of what a husband, father and Papa should be. Accept his sincere invitation to meet him again in heaven. “Have a good day”.
From your greatest treasures that call you Papa, “WE LOVE YOU! WE WILL MISS YOU A THOUSAND WAYS.”
