Jimmie Arthur Rogers passed peacefully on January 12, 2022, at the age of 84. Jimmie retired from Alcoa as a machinist, but never really stopped working. Even after retirement, he still continued his life work as a rancher. He grew up in El Toro, Texas where he was born on Thursday, November 18, 1937, and it was always his favorite place to be. He loved driving through the pasture in his Chevrolet truck and looking at his cows checking on everything. He never lost his eye for spotting a problem or catching a glimpse of a deer in the distance. He was a good man and lived a good life and will be missed deeply by his family.
He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law John and Carol Rogers of Edna, and his daughter and son-in-law Diane and Mark Lesko of Austin. His grandchildren, Christy Seicko, Kyle Rogers, Shannon Graessle, Robert Lesko and Mallory Lesko, also his great-grandchildren, Sarah Novak, Shawn Gaubatz, Zach Yendrey and Bowen Graessle, also his sister Mary Ann and Donald Latimer. He has been preceded in death by his loving wife Judy Waisath Rogers and son Derrick Rogers and later in life by his long-time best friend Marie Buchanan. Also, by his brother Lester Rogers and sister Nellie Mae Yendrey and his mother and father, Mabel and Vernie Rogers.
