NOTTINGHAM - Julian Gilbert "Gil" Rogier, longtime resident of Rogier Place, Nottingham (North River Lake), has gone to be with the Lord on Dec. 6, 2012, after a recently diagnosed and hard-fought battle with cancer.
The Guest Book is expired.
Gil was born on March 4, 1944, to Frank and Gussie (Turner) Rogier of Court Street, Medford, Mass. He was a graduate of Medford High School in 1962. He served in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam, 1962-1966, making the rank of storekeeper 2nd class just prior to discharge.
He leaves behind his loving brother, Charles Rogier and his wife, Denise, of Medford, Mass.; daughter Cindy Hammond and husband, David, of Waterboro, Maine; son John Rogier and his wife, Monica, of Nottingham; son Jaysen Rogier and wife, Karen, of Lebanon, Maine; stepson David Ellis of Hudson; stepdaughter Millie Ellis of Pembroke; unofficially adopted and loved son Rick McAllister of Northwood; eight wonderfully and proudly cherished grandchildren, Ben, Andrew, and Jacob Hammond, Samantha, Nicole, Rebekah, and Hannah Rogier, and Erica Ellis-Moore (of Raymond); and his first great-grandchild, Lucas Moore (of Raymond).
Gil enjoyed his retirement days chumming around with his best friend, Ray Kennard of Nottingham. He also loved his daily walks on Cooper Hill, talks and laughs with friends, and being part of the local community.
