Born Oct. 1, 1936, in Mooresville, he was the son of the late Harding Winslow Rogers Sr. and Mary Agnes McNeely Rogers, He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Peggy Mott Rogers; daughter, Mary Vivian Rogers-Cannon and husband, Dylan; son, Harding "Winslow" Rogers III and wife, Laura; grandchildren Beth and Doug Cannon, and Vivian Rogers; and brother, Bryant Kilpatrick Rogers. Dr. Rogers was born and raised on Main St., in Mooresville. He graduated from Davidson College and the University of North Carolina School Of Dentistry.

Dr. Rogers practiced for 34 years as a general dentist, where he was admired for his clinical excellence and loved by his patients and staff. Other passions in his life were his farm, his family and his fishing buddies. His farm is where he raised beef cattle and brought his children up knowing the dignity of doing things correctly, and the glory of an honest day's work. Times with family and friends working on the farm with us bring memories of much laughter and much more sweat! His fishing and hunting trips with his buddies were precious and relaxing! He touched the lives of many people through his concern for everyone's well-being, as well as his silent benevolences. He was a life-long member of the First Presbyterian Church of Mooresville, where he served as a deacon. He was Moderator of the board of deacons; Stephen Minister and Stephen Ministry leader, and multiple years as President of the men's Bible class. In his civic life, Dr. Rogers was president of the Mooresville Rotary club, a Masonic Mason, as well as a founding member of the DIFF club.

Buddy, you are special to me. As cousins we spent many years together with our other cousins Joe and Lewis from childhood through all our lives. Too many memories to recall but each cherished. Many Sunday afternoons at Grammy Muz in Mooresville; Uncle Harding taking us to Carolina Beach, staying in the Bame Hotel and pier fishing; watching Charlie Justice play football at UNC; many days rabbit hunting and me having to shoot the rabbit with my single barrel 16 gage after you had shot at it three times and missed with your Ithica automatic; bream fishing in your farm pond; our times at Raleigh while I was at State and Peggy at Meredith; going with you on my first trip to Davis Island with Pers Ellis, Steve Smith and other friends. Memories of the many years spent together with TC, Blackie and so many others to recall and experiencing every imaginal adventure that could occur on Davis Island over the next forty years. Sharing the many good times with our family and friends in Mooresville and lake Norman and watching our children grow up together and continuing the linage of our families.

Laura and I and our family cherish the God given blessings of being a part of the family of Harding, Peggy, Winslow and Vivian to share God’s love during our lives. We love and will mis you until we are together again with our Heavenly Father.
