Colin and I met at the beginning of our 7th grade year. We had a lot of years of fun together.

Colin was so funny! The two of us would create lots of havoc together. We would get ready to go out, Katrina would keep sneaking in the basement to see what we are doing, Ken would would ask, "you guys going out to soap some cars windows?", and Michele would say we were dumb. LOL. Such fun memories.

The look on his face when flicking peanuts in study hall or at the hall monitor in school was priceless. I also enjoyed the many times when we would camp and fish with Brad, Luke Ray, Rusty and Eric.

Colin was so proud of his wife Jess, his sisters and spoke how he loved his parents.

I just loved when the two of us would heckle each other on the phone, as recently as August.

I am gonna miss ya buddy. Thanks for all the fun, laugher and your friendship. I am going to miss you.
My thoughts and prayers are with Rev Ken, Miriam, Katrina, Michele and Jess during this difficult time.

Deborah Buss on Nov 17, 2017

I lost my Son almost 3years ago. I just want the Rogers family to know I remember them very fondly from when he was minister of the Methodist church in Chatfield. I remember a phone call from Reverend Rogers when I lost my Son. I was so touched that he had remembered my son. I wish I could give them words that would take the hurt away. But unfourtnutly their are none. I will remember you all in prayers Deb Buss
