1. James Franklin Rogge, known to all as Jim, Coach, or Pa left our earthly journey to go to his eternal home on January 25, 2021. 

Jim was born to Christopher and Sarah Rogge on March 3, 1938 simply and uniquely on the farm stead.

He had 3 other siblings ..Kenneth, Elsie and Stanley- all of whom have preceded him into eternal life. Also waiting for him eternally were his parents and wife, Francis DeAnn Rogge.

Missing him dearly are his daughter, Lisa Rogge Blair; grandson, Lukas James Rogge; great-grandson, Dallas Dean Rogge; Jim’s fiancé of 15 years Karen Prouty; his village of Kevin, Marcy, Hayden, Jenna, Kamryn, and Kylee; nieces and nephews and friends too numerous to count.

82 years young served Jim well. While living, whether it was enjoying his family, coaching a high school football team to a State championship, to remodeling and building homes, to making Barnwood creations for a booth during his retirement years, Jim always saw his cup half full.

To God Be The Glory for his strong shoulders, unshakeable faith and unwavering love to all who crossed his path in life.
