Frederick L. Rogers Jr., age 64, passed away on the morning of June 29th, 2022. Fred was born on May 28th, 1958 in Pottsville, PA, to Frederick Sr. and Beverly Rogers.
Fred was an avid football fan, supporting the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Philadelphia Eagles. But his absolute favorite sport to watch was the one his grandkids were playing. He loved anything to do with the water; fishing, boating, or even a day at the beach. He was a certified Scuba diver and taught his daughter to dive in the pool and his grandchildren to snorkel in the ocean. His passions did not stop at the water, however, and Fred was known to be quite the grill master. His favorite things to grill were steaks, oysters, chicken, and his wife Terrie’s favorite, salmon. Fred could often be found out in his shop, “piddling” as he referred to it. He was a woodworker and had developed a new hobby of 3-D printing.
Fred was preceded in death by his father, Frederick L. Rogers Sr., and his beloved dog, Bailey.
He is survived by his loving wife, Terrie, of Moyock; daughter Amber Bock (Travis), of Seattle Washington; son, Frederick “Trey” III (Sarah), of Moyock, North Carolina; his mother, Beverly, of Virginia Beach, VA; Mother-in-law, JoAnn of Moyock, North Carolina; brother Kenneth (Tammy), of Moyock, North Carolina; grandchildren Parker, Brantley, and Laith Rogers and Isabelle and Hunter Bock; and his devoted dogs Marley and Lilly.
Fred will be remembered as a man that put family above everything, and will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, July 8th, 2022 from 6-7pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home in Chesapeake.
