Back in February of 1998 Scott was askid to write about one of his ancestors for a project at school. Scott wrote:

An important ancestor of mine is Willard George Rogers, my great grand father. He was born June 2, 1912 in Kanosh Utah. He is a little bit smaller than my dad and he is thin. He is 85 years old. My grandpa has a big house on a farm in Central Valley Utah. He grows tomatoes, carrots, onions, peas, beans, potatoes, lettuce and many other vegetables. We play hide and go seek on his farm. They give us lots of goodies and sugar and my grandpa plays Frisbee with me.

We will all miss Grandpa Rogers.
