James L. “JimBob” Rogers was born 1/13/1963 in Huntsville, Arkansas and lived most of his life in Lincoln, NE.
Jim was well known for his mischievous belly laugh and ornery personality. People recognized him for his blue eyes and a contagious grin. Jim was a lover of music, and never turned down a chance to “go for a ride” so he could crank the car radio and “get funky” or “boogie” as he liked to say. He was a very caring person and always asked whomever he met how they were doing, just to make sure they were “pretty good, now”. James appreciated the little things in life that others take for granted, and all who knew him understood his love of a good hamburger and root beer. Jim could often be heard humming and singing his thoughts, with a classic chant being, “Can of pop!!” to his unique tune. Enjoying a soda with Jim was a privilege to all who experienced it and made you a friend in his eyes.
In recent years, Jim underwent health challenges that would crumble an average person. Jim took each day in stride and defied the expectations of his doctors on more than one occasion to regain his health and live out the rest of his days in the best way possible. Jim was an example of perseverance and inner strength. Those who loved him learned what it meant to love unconditionally.
Jim passed suddenly but peacefully on November 2, 2020 with those he knew as family by his side.
Jim will be laid to rest next to his parents, Julia and Robert Rogers in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery, 6800 South 14th Street, Lincoln, NE. In lieu of services due to the coronavirus pandemic, those who knew Jim are invited to share photos, videos and memories of Jim which will be compiled into a memorial video to be shared at a later time.
