October 30, 1967 — August 13, 2020

Greg was born on October 30, 1967 in Rockford, son of Nolan Rogers and Charlotte McDonald. He graduated from East High School. Greg was employed with Erickson Property Management and loved driving around in his beloved black Chevy truck checking on properties. He previously owned and operated Rogers Carpet Service. Greg was a member of the Lombardi Club where he spent time socializing with many friends. He was an avid Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears and NASCAR fan. Greg’s favorite place to hangout was in his ever-expanding backyard man cave, watching a game and grilling for friends and family. He had a special love for his dogs, Lexie and Chewie. Greg was a kind-hearted, gentle soul who touched the lives of all those that knew him. We will miss his laugh and twinkling blue eyes.
