Ronald Edward Rogers
Ronald Edward Rogers, 68, of Gordonsville, died peacefully on Saturday, November 28, 2020, at his residence. Born on September 26, 1952, he was the son of the late Edward Rogers and Irene Lam Rogers. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Carol Lee Rogers.
Ronnie is survived by his two daughters, Kimberly Rogers Oliver and husband, Andrew, of Orange, and Amy Grey Rogers and fiancé, Hunter Newman, of Orange; three grandchildren, Emily Grace Aylor of Orange, Courtney Lutz of Madison, and Adam Lutz of Orange; and two great-grandchildren, Adaylnn LiCalzi and Amaya Hale of Madison. He is also survived by two brothers, Larry Rogers and wife, Carol, of Orange, and Marshall Rogers and wife, Cindy, of Gordonsville; a sister-in-law, Mary Rogers of Barboursville; a beloved aunt, Matilda Corbin and husband, Jim, of Orange, and a host of nieces and nephews.
Ronnie worked most of his life beside his brothers in one capacity or another. He was recently described as a "master metal roof worker" and "back in the day there were no better roofers/carpenters/brick masons than he and his brothers." Whether working or playing they were a tightknit crew. Ronnie liked everything old school and preferred to live his life almost in a different time…never venturing far from home, hunting, fishing, trapping and being outdoors. What was treasure to him was rarely seen by anyone else. He required little and lived a simple, unassuming life always saying, "he didn't need much."
He loved all his animals over the years; horses, mules, pigs, ducks, goats, and chickens, but most of all his two dogs, Dinkie and Stella as he never went anywhere without them.
A memorial service and celebration of Ronnie's life will be held at a later date when everyone can be outside just as he would have been.
Preddy Funeral Home of Gordonsville is assisting the family.
