On the evening of August 19, 2022, Randy Joe Rogers, age 68, went home to be with the Lord, in Winston-Salem while surrounded by his family. Randy was a native of Bladenboro, NC, and a long-time resident of Bethania, NC.
Randy was born on November 12, 1953, the first son of Kenneth and Joanne Rogers.
A graduate of Bladenboro High School (’72), Randy was also a graduate of NC State Uni-versity where he earned a degree in civil engineering. He worked for the city of Winston-Salem for 32 years and for Surry Community College for 12 years as the Director of Facilities.
Randy patiently invested in the lives of many young men during his 23 years in the Boy Scouts of America. He served as scoutmaster of Troop 942 for 14 years, was a recipient of the Vigil Honor of the Order of the Arrow, and served on the Eagle Scout Review Board. Under his leadership, more than 100 young men earned the award of Eagle Scout.
Randy loved to spend time with his family, explore the outdoors, and cheer on the NC State Wolfpack. Whether it was a pinewood derby car or the Lawrence-Joel Coliseum, Randy loved to see his design ideas take shape. He was a purveyor of garden vegetables and Ford Broncos. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church for 30 years, slightly longer than it took him to complete “the rock wall.”
Randy was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth, and his brother Rocky (Glenda).
Randy is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Rachel; their children, John (Adrienne) Rog-ers and Caroline (Gunnery Sergeant Elbert) McAnally; three grandchildren, Logan, Parker, and Emsleigh. He is also survived by his mother, Joanne Rogers; siblings, Pam Jones, Rusty (Camilla) Rogers, and Richie (Paula) Rogers.
All of those he loved, he touched deeply. Please join us in celebrating his life. A funeral ser-vice will be held on Friday, August 26th at 1:00 at Calvary Baptist Church. The family will receive visitors on Thursday, August 25th from 6:00-8:00 at Vogler Funeral at Forsyth Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the facilities fund at Calvary Baptist Church.
