Gregory A. Rodgers

Gregory A. Rodgers, 58, of West Greenwich, formerly of Jamestown, passed away Nov. 1, 2012, at his home. He was the beloved husband of Joanne S. (Conti) Rodgers.

Born in Pensacola, Fla., but deeply rooted in Gettysburg, Penn., he was a son of Ruth Ann (Swope) Rodgers and the late Capt. Frederick A. Rodgers.

Greg was passionate about riding his motorcycle with “the boys.” He was the captain of the Olivia Ann, his pleasure boat, and an avid fisherman.

Besides his wife and mother, he leaves three children, Kimberly A. Rodgers, Andrew P. Rodgers and Wade G. Rodgers; five siblings and their families, Paula Heffernan of Stafford, Va., D. Bradley Rodgers of Harrisburg, Penn., Ryan Rodgers of Houston, Mark Rodgers of Dallas, and Matthew Rodgers of Ashburn, Va.; and his most cherished granddaughter Olivia A. Sepe. He also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 1 State St., Suite 200, Providence, RI 02908.
