Thomas Albert Rogers Jr., an outstanding Father, Son, Brother and Uncle, passed from this life onto the next, Thursday afternoon, November 14, 2007. Thomas was born in Phoenix, Arizona on April 7, 1979 and passed on in Clearfield, Utah.
Thomas was the proud Father of Tomi Naima Rogers (2), his little girl, the love of his life, the reason for making better choices and loving life to its fullest. Thomas was also the Father and Daddy to Abrial Maran Garcia (5). He loved both of his girls as though they both belonged to him, not making any distinction between the two.
Thomas attended Dayton High School in Dayton, Nevada, where he was the Catcher and Pitcher for the Baseball Team and the Running Back for the Football Team. Thomas served our country proudly in the Naval Forces at Virginia Beach, VA from 1998 - 2002. While serving his country he played for the Naval Soccer team as their Full Back and Forward. Thomas enjoyed work which required him to use his hands; such as Woodworking, Cycling, Pool and hours of video games with his sisters!
