Bill Rodgers passed away in Conroe, Texas, on January 1, 2015, after a long battle with cancer and heart disease. Bill was not one to complain and was always so positive that it was hard to believe he was so sick during his last few years. He was born in Marietta, OK, on January 10, 1934 to Clyde and Odell Rodgers. He had two sisters Jean and Anne. His family later moved to Texas and he went to school in San Angelo where he graduated with the Class of 1952. Bill remained close with his high school class and enjoyed going to all the reunions. Bill joined the Army and did a tour of duty during the Korean War. When he returned, he eventually found his way into the Car business. Bill loved Cars and was lucky to find a job doing something he loved so much. His professional life revolved around Car Sales, and most of his personal time was spent working on and restoring old cars. His pride and joy was a 1957 T-Bird. He was a bit of a workaholic but he found the work very satisfying and rewarding. Bill sold just about every type of car and truck available. He was a great salesman and his customers loved him. He retired in 2011 after a 20 year career at John Wiesner in Conroe, where he set the car sales record. He sold 38 cars in one month which is an unbroken record to this day. Bill also loved Women. And Women really seemed to love him, for a while at least. He was married 5 times. He was very charismatic and charming. He loved to laugh and cut-up with both friends and strangers and he was well liked by all. Bill moved to the Houston area in the late 60's and finally settled in Conroe, TX. He loved the trees and forests in the area which gave him a little privacy since he liked to walk around naked a lot :) Bill is survived by his sister Anne Hoggard (Roseburg, OR) and his only child Will Rodgers (Frisco, TX). He will be missed by his friends and family. A memorial service will be held at 1pm on Tuesday, January 6, at the McNutt Funeral Home in Conroe, TX.
