Dr. Rogers began his teaching career in Benton Harbor, Michigan. He spent the rest of his teaching career working for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools.

After retiring to San Antonio he became involved with NARFF National Active and Retired Federal Employees. He served as legislative officer for Chapter 1320 and then became the South Texas area Vice President for many years.

The family requests contributions to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 291048, San Antonio, TX 78229, in lieu of flowers.
