JR was one of the best men I've met in my entire life. I'm a better person for knowing you and will ALWAYS keep fond memories of you close to me.

Brandy , Sara, Julia So sorry to hear about JR . One of the things I enjoyed during my visits to Johnstown was to track him down, not hard to do if he wasn't fishing,and to spend time with him while I was there. A few shots and beers and a whole lot of laughs. He will be missed.

Vicki, I never got to meet your brother but know he was a special person by the way you and your mom talked about him. And talented. The reception at Amber's wedding that he catered was inspired and beautiful. Sorry that your family lost him so soon. Love to you and Rick, Marge and Randy

A forty year friendship began in N. Palm Beach , Florida in the Fall of 1978 and so many fun and memorable times ensued. The Daytona 500, ridin' out Hurricane David, the JR Cups and countless laughs over a vodka/squirt. A talented guy who will be missed. Wolfey ( Geo ).

Rogers Family,
I was sorry to read of the passing of your beloved Johnny. You can cherish all the special
moments that you have shared together. Jesus said of himself: I am the resurrection and the
life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life. Johnny is not suffering any pain or heartache. He has the wonderful hope of a resurrection to a righteous new world where sickness and death will be no more. (John 5:28,29, 11:11-14, 25 Isaiah 25:8, 33:24)

Johnny, you will be so missed. Thank you for talking my Mom into the Mork suspenders that I just had to have. I loved being your cousin and hate that it has been so long since I've seen you. Distance did not stop me from loving you. To your family, my family, I'm so sorry for this loss. Hugs and love!
Aleasha, Sha...Lee
