Rodger L. Sprague Obituary

Rodger L. Sprague, 60, died at his home outside of Yuba City, California on December 1, 2016.

Rodger was born February 21, 1956 in Caldwell, Idaho to Theron and Sandra Sprague. He graduated from Yuba City High School in 1974 and married his high school sweetheart, Jeri, on March 20, 1976 in Yuba City.

A hard working fourth generation beekeeper, Rodger was an avid hunter and fisherman. To those who knew him well and those who barely knew him, he was a strong, kind, compassionate, unselfish, family-first man.

Rodger was preceded in death by his father, Theron "Tom" Sprague. He is survived by his wife, Jeri; son and his spouse, Kevin and Jessica Sprague; daughter and her spouse, Kelly and Michael Mincer; six grandchildren, Faith, Grace, Collin, Taylor, Carter, and Halle; mother, Sandra Sprague; brother and his spouse, Peter and Julie Sprague; and two sisters, Kimber and Kandi Sprague.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Adventure Church, 1100 Garden Highway, Yuba City, on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. A reception will follow at the Flower House Hall at the Yuba Sutter Fair Grounds, 442 Franklin Road, Yuba City.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Marysville Police Officers Association's annual toy drive at the Marysville Police Department.
