James Alfred Rogers was born 1931 in Los Angeles and moved to Burbank with his family when he was 5. A proud Burbank Bulldog quarterback, he remained involved as Booster Club President when his sons joined the Burbank High football program in 1978.
He joined the Air Force out of high school and was stationed in Nebraska where he met the love of his life and remained married for 62 years. He graduated from UCLA and remained an avid Bruins fan. After over 40 years in management, he retired from Tube Service, a division of Reliance Steel. He loved spending time with his three children and their families, especially watching all of the sporting and dance events. His passion was football, working in the yard and watching the view from his beloved home in the Burbank Hills.
He is survived by his wife Angie, and children, Jennifer and husband Scott, Stephen and wife Gail, Chris and wife Shelly, and eight beautiful grandkids that he loved very much.
