John Allen Rogers passed away on September 29, 2023. He was preceded in death by his wife of 67 years Jean Rogers. John (Jack, Buck, Colonel, Pow) was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 5, 1933, to George and Louise Rogers. The family later moved to San Diego, California where Buck met Jean Diane Rayho in Junior High. They went on to date throughout their time attending and graduating from San Diego State University and were eventually married in 1955.
After college, Buck entered the United States Air Force and was trained as a navigator. While stationed throughout the United States and Okinawa, Buck and Jean raised their family.
Buck retired from the Air Force after 25 years of service and held several occupations in San Antonio before eventually retiring fully to focus on his beloved ’56 Ford Thunderbird. Buck also went on to become an expert in the restoration and selling of Singer Featherweight sewing machines.
Buck is survived by his daughter Debora Clark & husband Gerald, his son Mark Rogers & wife Toni, and his grandson Austin Clark & wife Elyse.
