Michael J. Rogers

November 6, 1958 — May 10, 2024

Muldrow, Oklahoma

Michael J. "Big Mike" or “Big’N” Rogers, 65 of Muldrow, Oklahoma passed peacefully on May 10,
2024. He was born on November 6, 1958 in Fort Smith, Arkansas to Norma Francis (Wagers)
Rogers and Herman J. Rogers, Jr.   He was married to Kathryn (Hug) Rogers on October 22, 1983
in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Mike graduated from Muldrow High School and was a 1981 graduate of
Oklahoma State University where he earned his Bachelors Degree in Animal Science. He enjoyed
spending time with his family and grandchildren, Blair "Doodlebug" and John Rogers "J.R.". They
covered lots of miles riding around in the "War Wagon" on the back roads in Redland. They were his
pride and joy and he spoiled them rotten. Big Mike always wanted to be remembered for treating
everyone the same. He retired from the U.S. Postal service after serving for 29 years as a city letter
carrier. Mike also served for over 20 years as a volunteer firefighter. Cooking and barbecuing were
Mike's love language - he felt that food was the way to anyone's heart. He often showed up with food
to let people know they were special. He was blessed to have great friends and family, as well as, a
wonderful church family at First Assembly of God Church in Muldrow. Over the years, he belonged
to several different organizations and community activities locally and statewide such as, Redland
Fire Department, President of Leaders for Education in Agriculture, board member of Connors State
College Foundation, Master Mason and member of Bruton Masonic Lodge #30 and member of
Redland Cemetery Committee.

Survivors are wife of 40 years, Kathy of the home; two daughters, Katie Rogers of Omaha, NE and
Margaret "Maggie" Dillard (Cole) of Muldrow, OK; two grandchildren, Blair "Doodlebug" and John
Rogers "J.R." Dillard; one brother, Mark Rogers (Toni) of Owasso, OK; several aunts, uncles,
nieces, nephews, and a multitude of cousins; and his special brothers, "The Connors Boys", for
almost 50 years, Clovis, Claude, Festus, Mayhan, Pookie, Rainbo, Rooster, Spiffy, Stump and Tiger.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Norma Francis (Wagers) Rogers and Herman Rogers, Jr.;
