For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:17-18

He was chosen to fulfill his heavenly duties after seventy years on earth. The Lord called him home on Sunday,  October 8th, 2023.

When Stevie released his last breath, he left an eternal void in the hearts of those that loved him. He is rejoining his lovely wife Sylvia “Bert” Rogers.

Stevie was educated in the public schools of Darlington County and graduated from Butler High School in 1972. While at Butler, he participated in the marching band and the Butler High School Glee Club. He always was a part of the annual talents shows and performed many songs over the years. One of his favorites was the 1967 recording by Sam & Dave “Soul Man” that he performed with his life long friend, Alphonso “Muddy Water” McLeod.

After high school, Mr. Rogers enlisted in the United States Army and served as a private first class during the Vietnam Conflict. After his honorable discharge from the military, he began driving long distance trucks. That was his passion until he was unable to so because of his health.
