Gerald G. Rogers

October 15, 1946 ~ August 23, 2022 (age 75)



Gerald Guy Rogers, born October 15th, 1946, passed away peacefully at Cedar Ridge Center, Skowhegan, Maine on August 23rd, 2022 at the age of seventy-five, after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.


Gerald was born in Eustis, Maine to Glennis Safford and Guy Rogers. During his childhood, Gerald and his family, including sisters Ann and Linda and brother Gary, moved to Solon.  After graduating from Solon High School, Gerald enlisted in the Army where he was able to travel to Europe, learn German and take many photos, which he treasured.  Upon returning to Solon, he married Penny McQuilkin on May 12th, 1973 and raised two daughters, Hillary and Liza.


Gerald loved to hunt and fish, weld, build with his hands, work on anything with a motor, care for his property and spend time with his family.  He spent 27 years working for Cianbro as general foreman and assistant supervisor.  Those close to him will remember him as kind, hard working and a man of few words with a big heart.
