September 7, 1944 – June 4, 2022 (age 77)

Carl Walter Rogers Jr., age 77, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at his home in North Logan, Utah. He was born in Los Angeles, California to Carl Walter Sr. and June Graham Rogers. He was married to Sandra Perry in January of 1968 and together they had 8 children: Tamara Johnson (Jason), Deanna Nielson (John), Carl III (Debbie), Daniel (Tiffany), Steven (Robyn), Patricia Karren (Brandon), James and Amy Murray (Dan). Carl was later married to Colleen Olsen and with her 4 existing children: Bonnie Bowman (Rob), Jennifer Olsen, Kristen Olsen and Ken Olsen (Janiel), he rounded it up to an even dozen. Carl was blessed with many grandchildren and just recently his first great-grandchild, and he loved them all more than anything.

Although not a farmer or rancher by trade, he maintained a large vegetable garden and a variety of livestock when his kids were younger. Using these as tools to help teach his kids the value of hard work. He was a small business owner and blessed with the gift of gab. He talked his way into more business opportunities than he should have, simply because people liked conversing with him and he was also an excellent listener. He enjoyed the outdoors, camping, hunting, fishing and especially the time spent with those he went with. He was active in his church, he served in a variety of roles which included an LDS mission to Lima, Peru and one of his favorite Sunday activities was that of home teaching. He loved family get togethers, especially if it was a pot luck with Mexican food. He was a very handy man, always building or repairing things, helping his kids fix their bikes, cars or whatever else needed mending. Later in life he channeled these skills into tying flies for fishing, and painting mountain landscapes. Carl will be remembered for his infectious laugh, good natured teasing, and his famous “Raspberry” kisses.
