Obituary

Milton Lee Rogers was born on June 1, 1923 in Accomack County, Virginia to the late Louis and Lola Rogers. Milton made his transition to eternal rest with the Father on August 17, 2019 while convalescing at Shore Heath and Rehab Center in Parksley, Virginia.

Milton was educated in the Accomack County school system. Following his graduation from high school he attended college for two years. Milton proudly served as a member of the United States Army in the Calvary and received an honorable discharge in 1943.

After moving to Baltimore, Maryland, Milton wed Mamie Wiley and their union lasted thirty years. While residing in Baltimore, Milton worked as a Nursing Assistant for thirty-one years at three different hospitals. He also worked in the Civil Service at Fort Howard Veterans Administration Hospital for twenty-nine years. Milton later was awarded retirement disability as a GS-5 Nursing Assistant in 1984.

Milton was a baptized, born again Christian who loved the Lord. He was baptized while a member of the Greater Church of our Lord Jesus Christ Apostolic Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland in 1964. Milton later went on to become a devoted and dutiful member of Metompkin Baptist Church of Parksley, Virginia in the 1970s, where he served in many capacities in the church. He served as custodian, member of the Male Chorus, Pastoral Support Ministry, Hospitality Ministry, Missionary Ministry, Trustee Ministry, and church greeter. What a testimony!

Milton’s kind and gentle spirit crossed into his service in the ministry and was carried out diligently, humbly and with absolute love. Milton was a truly faithful church member and loved singing on the choir, attending Sunday School, as well as church services. He would often speak of his love for the Lord and his church family.

Milton enjoyed good music and loved watching different television programs. He was especially fond of Black Entertainment Television (BET) and always liked conversing about current events and politics.

Milton lived, laughed, and loved. He will certainly be missed. Left to cherish his memory are: his nephews,
M. Tafari Tamrat of Lake Manassas, VA, Sean Parker (Yvette) of Philadelphia, PA; brother-in-law, Roy Parker of Philadelphia, PA; godson, James Jackson of Baltimore, MD; and a host of cousins and their spouses and friends. Cousin Charlie Rogers was very close to Milton and they shared a special bond. Milton also enjoyed a very special relationship with devoted friends and caretakers Avery (Darnell) Fleming & Kenneth Rayfield who Milton referred to as his “son.”
