A native of Warren County, Mr. Rogers was born Dec. 27, 1984. He is the son of Richard Glenn Rogers and Marsha Argo Rogers. In addition to his loving parents, Glenn is survived by sister Sally Belinda Rogers (Jake Canull) of Nashville, maternal grandmother Evelyn Argo of McMinnville, paternal grandmother Wilma Roger-McAfee of Morrison, and very special friend Grace Woodard of Clovis, New Mexico.
Glenn was a cradle roll member of First Baptist Church. He was baptized there at age 9. He loved reading the Bible and his favorite hymn was, “I’ll Fly Away.”
Glenn grew up beside his dad on the family farm that was dairy when he was little. He pushed his red riding tractor through every mud puddle he could find. His dream was to become a daily famer again one day. The family farm, Roger’s Home Plate Farm, was recently recognized as a Century Farm, notating 100 years of continuous agriculture production.
Glenn served as a Service Aide 1 at the University of Tennessee Space Institute for the past three years. Prior to that, he was a maintenance technician for the city of Tullahoma.
Glenn had a deep love for tractors, turning the soil and raising cattle. He loved the smell of fresh turned earth. He had helped the farmers in the Morrison area and also Woodbury milk their cows. He had worked for R&B Nursery in Smithville and a summer with the city of McMinnville in its Urban Forestry Department before leaving for college. He called his old International Tractor, Abraham.
Glenn enjoyed baseball and softball. He played baseball on several traveling teams growing up and also for Warren County High School before continuing his career at Motlow State Community College where he graduated. An excellent cook, he spent some time on the grills at Prater’s Bar-B-Que. He loved gardening and helped can the produce of the harvest. He loved hunting and fishing with his dad and friends. He loved hiking at Fall Creek Falls, fishing from the cabin porch and seeing all the wildlife. He had a collection of arrowheads that he had found and enjoyed researching their origins. He truly was a fan of the outdoors.
Glenn is preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Thomas Argo, paternal grandfather Leslie Glenn Rogers, uncle John Kenneth Sherrill, and dear first cousin Jody Savage. Glenn was loved by so many. He had a wonderful smile and will be sadly missed.
