A Memorial Service will be held for Col. Brad G. Rogers, age 64, at Calvary Baptist Church, 1993 Hwy 3062 in Homer, LA, on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at 5:00 p.m., with Rev. Steve Beard, officiating. Visitation will be at the church from 3-5 p.m., prior to the service.
Brad was born July 12, 1958, in Homer, LA, to Joy Eller Rogers and J.C. Rogers, Jr. He entered into rest on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, in Homer, LA. Brad’s whole life was Corrections. He had 20 plus years of teaching “Hunter Safety and Education,” as well as, many other courses. Brad retired in 2022 after over 35 years of service with Corrections. During Covid, Brad cooked numerous meals for first responders, health care professionals, medical staff and essential employees as he was always wanting to “Make a Difference.” As the original founder of “The 98 Hunting Club,” he enjoyed hunting deer, duck, turkey, and squirrel. Running blood hounds with The Chase Team and tracking fugitives was his great passion. Brad’s zeal for his Lord and Savior was shown through his care and compassion for others. To know Brad was to love him. His legacy will live on in those who had the opportunity to just know him. Brad will be greatly missed by family, friends, and countless others.
He is preceded in death by his parents; step-mother, Elizabeth Robinson Rogers; and brother, Jeff C. Rogers.
He is survived by his wife, Crista C. Rogers; two sons, Bradney Chase Rogers and wife Nique of Haynesville, LA, and Colin Rogers and wife Allie of Homer, LA; a sister, Sherri Rogers of Homer, LA; four grandchildren, Emme Rogers, Aiden Rogers, River Cheney, and Riley Cheney; a niece, Bri Ray; special family members, Joe and Kathy Ratcliff; Baby Joy; along with other relatives and countless friends.
Brad’s family would like to express their gratitude to Claiborne Memorial Medical Center and Bristol Hospice for their care and compassion given him during his final days, as well as, our Wade Correctional family and Pafford family.
Honorary pallbearers will be the original “Field Team.”
In lieu of flowers honoring Brad, his family suggests memorials be made to Calvary Baptist Church.
