Henry C. Rogers, Sr. and Marie Rogers.
Kevin and I had two connections. First our parents, his dad and my mom, were volunteers on our town's ambulance squad. In fact that's how we met, at either the picnic the squad used to have on Memorial Day or at the Christmas party at the Ambulance Building, we were so young back then. Years later we would meet again in High School. We graduated the same year and had been friends for about 10 years when we said our good-byes and good lucks at graduation. I never saw him again after that, we had contact through our mothers, when they would see or call one another there was always a Kevin says to say hi to Sharon, or Sharon says to tell Kevin hello. Sadly that's all it was.
Kevin was very artistic and talented. He did a lot of the art work for our class. The last picture on Kevin's memorial is artwork he did. The picture of a Crusaders helmet, sheild, and spears appeared on the back of our yearbook. His art work was seen throughout the book. He was voted the "Most Artistic" male in our class.
My heart had gone out to his family, Kevin's dad passed away in June, and Kevin just two months later. His mom, brother, and sister had so much to deal with in such a short time. We miss you, Kev.
KEVIN C. ROGERS, 31, a lifelong resident of Elmwood Park, died Wednesday. A graduate of Elmwood Park High School, he was an art director for Lettercraft Inc., Saddle Brook. Kevin is survived by one brother and one sister and their families.
His father, Henry E. Sr., died in June. His mother has also since passed. A Mass was said at St. Leo R.C. Church, Elmwood Park, with cremation at Cedar Lawn Crematory, Paterson.
Arrangements were from Patrick J. Conte Funeral Home, Elmwood Park
A very special thank you to a very special man, William R. Lynch, for sponsoring Kevin's memorial. Bill that was so very nice of you. That was so sweet of you, I'm sure Kevin is smiling in heaven.
