George M. Rogers passed away in Monterey, CA. He resided in Hollister, CA. He died on January 18, 2018 and was born on July 31, 1947 in his grandparents' home on Rustic Street. He leaves behind his devoted wife, Judy Rogers that he absolutely adored. They had been married for "50 glorious years" as he would say. He also leaves behind his mother, Loretta Rogers, his sister, Rose, son, Bryan Rogers of Gilroy and daughter, Karen Rogers of Hollister. He had 6 grandchildren, Devan, Denae and Demi Townsend and Randi, Morgan and Cameron Rogers. He was also blessed with two great grandchildren, Frankie and Zoey Gaitan. Last but not least he is survived by his namesake, George Barajas.
He was an avid fisherman and hunter, which was his passion. He loved to teach anyone and everyone that he possibly could to fish and hunt. He also coached many children in his time which grew to be men and would stop by the house when they would see him sitting on the porch. He was a great man with a huge heart. His family was everything to him, he always protected them and put them first.
He was a Vietnam veteran and fought not only in Vietnam but also fought a battle of survival when he came home.
The family would like to thank everyone that took the time out of their day to visit him. They would also like to thank the neighbors on Buena Vista Rd that became friends, then family, especially his caregivers, Summer Garcia for taking care of him when he first became sick and Katie Beasley for taking care of him during his final days.
A Mass will be on Friday, February 9, 2018 at 11:00 AM at Immaculate Conception Church in Tres Pinos. Inurnment will be at a later time at the CA Central Coast Veterans Cemetery in Seaside.
We ask that when you see his 71 GMC "Yellow Jacket" coming, please stop and remember George Rogers.
