Roger Akers September 11, 2011, the Oakland Raiders lost their biggest fan as Roger Akers returned to live with God. He was born October 7, 1947 in Livorno, Italy. Roger was married 22 years to his love and eternal companion Kathleen. Together they raised four sons, Keelan (Leanne), Patrick (Lauren), Riley, and Rogan and a daughter, Alanna (Joshua) who fondly called him Pops. Roger was son to Olga, brother to Andre, Carina, and Pierre and grandfather to Lyra. Pops was a passionate family man and devout Catholic. He loved his water sports, gardening and Saturday morning garage sales. Although Roger will be sorely missed; he was warmly embraced by his late father David and new born son Paul as well as many other friends and family at the gates of heaven.
