Gary John Rogers

November 19, 1937 ~ February 2, 2024 (age 86) 86 Years Old


Gary John Rogers of New Orleans, LA, passed away peacefully on February 2, 2024. He was born on November 19, 1937 in Hodge, LA to the late Mr. Milton Rogers, Sr. and Mrs. Bernice (Beadle) Rogers.

Gary is lovingly remembered by his wife: Amy Gulotta-Rogers; his children: Kathleen Ann Rogers, Karen (Jay) Larson, Mark (Gayana) Rogers, Jeffrey (Jamie) Gulotta and Michael Gulotta; and his twelve grandchildren: Joshua Rogers, Emmanuel Rogers, Olivia Larson, David Rogers, Emma Larson, Lars Larson, Danna Rogers, Kate Larson, Mabel Larson, Liam Gulotta, Ethan Gulotta and Miss Josephine Gulotta. Also, survived by former daughter-in-law Melissa R. Gulotta. He is also lovingly remembered by his sisters: Gail (Roy) Looney, Irma (Donald) Conrad, and Elizabeth (Ronald) Schexnayder and preceded in death by his older brother Milton (Mary) Rogers Jr. and followed in death by his younger brother Sherwood (Sandra) Rogers.

Gary lived a life full of adventures! He had a long career with the New Orleans Fire Department, retiring as a District Chief. Gary was an avid reader who enjoyed being outside, keeping his bees and growing citrus. He was never far away from whipping up Aunt Bessie’s carrot cake or Heavenly Hash, which he liberally distributed. You’d be hard pressed to find someone more generous with their time and resources. Gary greatly enjoyed spending time with friends. A treasure of time was spent with his family, whom he dearly loved. His smile, humor and grandness of heart towards them will be profoundly missed.
