William C. "Bill" Rogers

February 10, 1930 - February 18, 2019

William C. Rogers, age 89, of New Port Richey, passed away on February 18, 2019. He was born February 10, 1930 to Jimmy and Lillian Rogers in Washington DC. Bill grew up in our nation’s capital and would live most of his life there. He spent time in Korea with the US Army before plying his trade as a sheet metal mechanic at the US Senate for 30 years. He frequently vacationed in Ormond Beach with his family, visiting his mother and attending the races in Daytona. When Bill retired in 1991, he made his home in Florida, coming from Hyattsville, MD. He was a man of deep faith and a parishioner of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church.

Bill was outgoing and had such a generous spirit. He was a blue-collar, dog-loving family man. He had many hobbies and great successes. He once made a hole in one and bowled a perfect 300 game. Bill was an avid sports fan, following his favorite teams and attending many games for the Redskins, Orioles, and Maryland Terrapins. He also enjoyed fishing and bicycling, especially when it was with the grandkids.

Bill is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Paul. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Jo; son, Michael (Gina) Rogers; daughter, Sandy Rogers (Randy Wright); grandchildren: William, Katie, Leigh Ann, and Kevin; and his beloved dachshund, Shorty.

A gathering of friends and family will be held on Sunday, February 24, from 4pm to 6pm at Michels & Lundquist Funeral Home. Mass will be celebrated 11am Monday, February 25, at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church.
