Clayton Rogers Obituary
Henry "Clayton" Rogers

August 7, 1927 - July 18, 2014

Clayton passed away in his home after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He enjoyed NASCAR, sports, fishing, and spending time with family and friends.

He joined the Merchant Marines when he was 17 years old (1944-1946). He was later drafted in the Army on 9-29-1950, to serve in the Korean War.

He was preceded in death by his wife Doris "Dodie" and is survived by daughters Debra Salituro and Kathleen Beck-Blaine (Gary Blaine); grandchildren Brian Beck, Amanda Beck, Serena Salituro; other family Jason Blaine and Ryan Blaine; and his dog Rocky.

Dad said, "I'm looking forward to seeing Dodie again." He requested no service; however, his family will have a private graveside service at the Spring Valley Church, where he will be buried.
