We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Pfeil Funeral Homes
Alvin Dean Rogers Sr. AKA “Al” departed this life on July 26, 2022, after battling a long-term illness in his Sandusky, Ohio home. Al was born August 26,1953, in Kemper County Mississippi, to Mother, Lola Batts and Father, Clarence Rogers Sr. Pensacola, Florida would become the place Alvin called "Home" after the family relocated.
His living siblings Ada, Clarence, Norman, (Pensacola FL.) His siblings Wydell, Lawrence, Bertha, and Jean preceded him in death. He is survived by his loving spouse, Karin Lucas-Rogers; daughters, Marie Rogers, Florita Rogers, Latrice Rogers, Abrianna Pinkney, Sejal L. Lucas, Dashauna Priest; and sons, Anthony "Stony" Murphy and Alvin Rogers Jr.
Al was very knowledgeable and had a wealth of skills and traits, a self-taught carpenter, mechanic, barber, one would have considered him a jack of all trades. He enjoyed watching Motor Trend, Westerns and riding his lawn mower. Al was a straight shooter and did not bite his tongue for anyone. Alvin loved to share his wisdom and knowledge with those he cared about. Honest, caring and courageous, he was a strong determined man. Through all adversities his faith in God never faltered.
Alvin leaves behind a host of grand-children, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Due to Alvin's wishes, there will not be a formal service because he wanted to be remembered in his legacy.
The family would like to thank Pfeil Funeral Home for the final arrangements during this difficult time. If you would like to contact the family, please call the funeral home at 419-625-2655, thank you.
Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the close of day
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,
Good friends, good times, my loved one’s touch
If my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your heart, rejoice with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
