Casey Rogers

Casey Neal Rogers was born on March 21st, 1983 at Rappahannock General Hospital. It did not take long for people to realize Casey’s love for athletics, people, and the water. Casey was the type of person who people naturally gravitated towards and he always had a glow and charisma that made Casey very special.

During Casey’s high school years, he took his passion for sports and participated in Varsity Football and Baseball.  Casey also had a passion for academics and graduated Northumberland High School with Honors and above a 3.0 GPA.

Casey loved sports. He especially loved baseball. From Little League T-ball through high school junior and senior varsity, he was an enthusiastic player and morale builder for his teams… Joyce Rogers (May 2004)

Casey’s hard work and dedication to academics resulted in him enrolling in East Carolina University. His charisma and attitude were instantly a hit and Casey was very popular at East Carolina University. He was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and was instrumental in setting up an intermural baseball program at ECU, in which his fraternity won the league the first summer.

When Casey was not working on academics or athletics, he was working as first-mate aboard The Midnight Sun with Captain Ryan Rogers, who was also his brother. Casey had a passion about fishing and being on the water and loved to share with angler’s his experience and love for the outdoors.

On August 22nd, 2003 Casey passed away from a tragic automobile accident. We will always mourn the loss of Casey, but wanted something positive for other people to remember from his passing. For all of the good choices that Casey made in his life, it only takes one bad choice to affect your life and the lives of others around you. People, especially teenagers, need to remember that the decisions you make can affect the lives of many. Please be careful with choices you make in your life as it only takes one bad decision to outweigh all the good choices.

Casey, you will always be in our hearts and prayer and we miss you. Please help to look over others and help guide them in the correct direction. We love you and know that you will always be looking over us.
