I have many many fond memories of Mr. Bill from working right next door at Ruston Hardware. He was a Ruston Icon who always took time to speak to everyone. Becky, your family will be in my prayers...

What a wonderful Christian man, I grew up in Trinity Methodist Church, I remember him always speaking to everyone he could, he and Kat were friends of my parents so I saw him frequently. He always was kidding around with people but was such a kind caring individual. Mr.Bill always told how much he though of my mother who sang in the choir with him and how much he missed her after she died. Mr.Bill would get after people with his cane playing around. My prayers go out to his family of great people and that their memories of him last forever until they meet again in Heaven.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

All of Bill's friends will miss him but be lifted by all the happy times spent with him and all of his marvelous, and sometimes outrageous, comments. I know all who knew him, as I do, have favorite Bill Rogers-isms. Bill Rogers will live on in many North Louisiana memories. God speed. Lyda

Ruston has lost one of its brightest stars in Mr. Bill Rogers. He was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor and engaging smile. He was a dear friend to my dad, Mike Reed, who enjoyed his visits so much even in his last months of life. Mr. Rogers certainly had a zest for life was it contagious to all who knew him. He will be sorely missed by all.

Bill and Kat were such wonderful friends. We were in China when Kat died and that was especially sad. We have missed both of them since moving from Ruston. They were special people. Earlene and Joe

I will always remember Daddy Bill as a loving, caring , and giving man! He loved all us KD's. A couple of us would house sit for he and Mama Kat when they would leave town! We would take care of the house and their cats and not to forget turning the cucumbers to be made into yummy pickles! He was always so proud of his canned pickles! They were Yummy! We are going to miss you Daddy Bill, but we know you are in a much better place now and celebrating with Mama Kat and filling her in about all the grand and great grand kids!! We love and will miss you! Not to worry, your baby Becky will be taking care of!

there is no doubt in my mind the minute Bill arrived at the gates of heaven...after he joined with Puddin....God said....well done my good and faith filled servant. And he is holding court at the PO Cafe in heaven with my Daddy.....never a kinder or a more embracing gentleman walked this earth. I know my life....as well as that of so many is forever better because of Bill Rogers! Feel my heart hugs....Becky and Tommy and all of the family!

This wonderfully warm-hearted gentleman was among the first to welcome our family to Ruston 30 years ago. We've always felt that he had a magic about him... a way of making folks feel really good about being here. He will be sorely missed, as will the joy that he would spread wherever he went. God did bless you Mr. Bill Rogers, and our prayers are now with your family. Bill & Barbara

In 1997, My wife and I moved to Ruston as I assumed the position as Priest of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer. In my endeavors to purchase my Ruston home I found my way into Rogers Furniture. What a blessing and a love consumed me as I met my new Ruston friend - Bill Rogers. I will miss him very much. He has blessed my family for the past 17 years. We will all miss him as was always light upon light as he loved all of us.
