John Joseph Rogers
Elmira, NY
Passed away on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at the age of 66. John was born January 16, 1953 in Elmira, NY, a son of the late John and Dorothy Earl Rogers. John was also pre-deceased by his mother-in-law Nancy L. Robinson.

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 30 years, Geri Robinson Rogers; children, John E. Rogers and Kellie Rogers; grandson, Roy J. Palmer; sister, Jackie (Richard) Grafius; father-in-law, Rodney L. Robinson; brother-in-law. Rodney C. Robinson, and several extended family members and friends.

John had a passion for many things in life. He made many friends and memories throughout his younger years playing golf at Mark Twain, and also playing in many slow pitch softball leagues. Everywhere he went he knew at least one person. His newest and deepest passion was being “big poppy” to his beloved grandson. He will be deeply missed and in our hearts forever.

The family will welcome relatives and friends to Sullivan’s Funeral Home, 365 E. Franklin St. at Rt. 13, Horseheads, NY on Monday, September 30, 2019 from 4-7 PM. Condolences and words of comfort may be expressed in John’s Book of Memories at

Roger Family,
Very sorry to hear of John’s passing. I umpired and played against John. Very competitive and I enjoyed every minute of it. Our prayers are with you and your family. God bless you all.

I remember growing up with Johnny in the neighborhood. Catalpa Dr / Fairfax St. He was a good kid. My sincerest sympathy to his family especially to his sister Jackie, who I also remember.
