Dennis Dwight Rogers 1944 - 2020

Dennis Dwight Rogers went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on September 21, 2020, at his home in Sheridan, Oregon. He was 76 years old at the time of his passing. Dennis was born January 7, 1944, in McMinnville, Oregon, to parents Ira and Naomi Rogers. Dennis took part in FFA and 4H while growing up in Sheridan. He graduated from Sheridan High School in 1962. In 1965, Dennis married his sweetheart, Carol, after returning from Oregon Army National Guard duty.

In his early career, Dennis worked for the Oregon State Highway Department, helping to build Interstate 84 from The Dalles to the John Day River. He then worked as a commercial and agricultural loan officer for the next 40-years in The Dalles, Pendleton, Yakima and McMinnville before retiring.

Dennis lived out his faith in Jesus Christ daily. He was an active member of his church. Not only did he serve in church ministries, but he also served his community in Lions Club, Yamhill Co. Road Committee, and Sheridan Fire Board. Whether it was family, friends, church or community, he didn’t wait to be asked to help. When a need became known, he would “just show up.”

Dennis had a passion for agriculture, fishing and woodworking. If he wasn’t spending time with his family, you could find him working on his property, helping a neighboring farmer friend, or working on a project in his woodshop.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents, Ira and Naomi Rogers; and brother, Vern. He is survived by his wife, Carol Rogers; his siblings, Charles Rogers, Elaine McNitt (Bob), Joyce Beers (Bob), and Bruce Rogers (Lynn); son, Eric Rogers (Tiffany); daughter, Nancy Loop (Robb); as well as 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. October 10, at 24700 S.W. Rogers Road, Sheridan. A reception will follow.
