September 9, 2012 in the blink of an eye, Bobby Lee Rogers, age 16, was taken from this world, his family, and his many friends as the result of a tragic accident. Having just entered his junior year at Mountain View High School, his contagious smile, energy and spark for life were in full swing. He and his brother Luke and many friends and family had enjoyed the "best summer ever" filled with water-sports camping, traveling and new adventures. He was making plans to test for his driver's license. He was looking forward to the snow, and spending time in McCall and Yellowpine riding snowmobiles and hitting the Idaho slopes on his snowboard. He recently announced that his future plans included becoming an Anesthesiologist. He was a straight A student, and had been known to turn down vacation plans with family to maintain his academic standings. Bobby was born on May 3, 1996 and raised in the Treasure Valley. He attended River Valley Elementary and Lewis and Clark Middle School. He played baseball in the PALs league and was a left-handed pitcher/first baseman. He played football in Junior High and enjoyed weightlifting and bodybuilding in High School. He was very artistic. He attended Treasure Valley Baptist Church in Meridian. Who could have known that this precious life would end so soon? Bobby was a curious, truth-seeking young man and had a plan for everything. If he could be here today, he would want everyone in his life to know that we will all die someday, but where we spend eternity is up to us. Bobby knew that asking Jesus to forgive him of his sin (choices/actions/words) and save his soul was his ticket into Heaven. He is there today. As a Christian family, we have suffered a great loss, and our lives with never be the same….but we are secure in our knowledge that our separation is temporary and we will see our precious Bobby again someday. Heaven received an amazing and beautiful soul as Bobby was escorted into the arms of Jesus. Bobby was very concerned about his family and friends, and it would be a tribute to his life if one soul was saved by his testimony and example. He is survived by his parents, Duke and Sheri Rogers, older brothers: Luke Rogers (17) and Matthew Miller (24) of Meridian and sister, Kayla Miller (22) of Moscow and his Colorado "big brothers": Greg, Marc, Eric and Derek Miller of Denver; grandparents: Bob (Rose) Rogers of Elko, NV; Judith Moss, of Meridian; Keith and Delta Holloway of Boise; Carl Heath of Cambridge and great-grandmother, Una Smith of Emmett and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends. He is preceded in death by his uncle, Wayne Rogers and was laid to rest next to him at the Meridian Cemetery in a private burial on Thursday afternoon.
