Obituary of Joe Willis Rogers Jr.
Joe Willis Rogers Jr., son of Joe Willis Rogers Sr. and Bertha (Hogue) Rogers, was born on November
11, 1933, near Stoutland, Missouri and entered his Heavenly home on October 2, 2022, at Dixon Nursing
& Rehab, at the age of eighty-eight years.
On July 28, 1953, he was united in marriage to Betty Jean McDaniel, who preceded him in death on
March 2, 2020, and to this union three children were born.
Junior, as most knew him, made a profession of faith at an early age and was a member at High Point
Baptist Church. Junior served with the United States Army in Korea, receiving an honorable discharge.
He worked at Owens Corning Fiberglass, in Kansas City, for eighteen years. He then moved his family
back home to Stoutland, Missouri, where he worked a number of jobs, which included owning his own
store and working for the Stoutland School District.
He loved his family dearly; especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Junior enjoyed sitting on
his front porch, watching and waving as the neighbors drove by, tending to his garden, driving his
four-wheeler around the neighborhood, and giving his great-grandchildren rides.
Junior is survived by two sons, Stanley Rogers and his wife, Patricia, of Eldridge, MO, Ricky Rogers of
Stoutland, MO; One daughter, Kathy Henson and her husband, Gary, of Stoutland, MO; sisters-in-law,
Evelyn Barnes and her husband, Francis, of Montreal, MO, Betty Rogers of Camdenton, MO, Sue Cox
and her husband, David, of Corvallis, OR, Kay Parker of Springfield, OR; brother-in-law, Ronnie McDaniel
of Ontario, OR; six grandchildren, David Rogers and his wife, Heather, Paul Rogers and April, John
Henson and his wife, Danae, Travis Rogers and his wife, Jessica, Amanda Foltz and her husband,
Kenneth, and Joseph Rogers; fifteen great-grandchildren; as well as other nieces and nephews, relatives,
Junior was preceded in death by his parents, Joe Willis, Sr. and Bertha Rogers; his wife, Betty; five
brothers, Edgel “Bud”, Edward, Willard, Dencil, and Raymond; four sisters, Thelma, Iva, Violet, and Leola;
four sisters-in-law; and five brothers-in-law.
Junior was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.
Although he will be missed by all who knew and loved him, we can find comfort in knowing that he is with
our Lord and has been reunited with his loved ones in Glory.
