Reporting the Passing of Autocrosser Mike Rogers


Recommended Posts

Mike Rogers was an avid autocrosser of many years and owned his fair share of fun cars.  From New Mexico, to here, to California, and then back home to us here.

March 1st he succumbed to an unknown condition only discovered while being treated for a recent fall. He fully expected to heal his cracked ribs within a few months, and be back in action with us then. But fate intervened.

You may have known him for his enthusiastic flogging of his current blue Civic Si in H Street, he was a student and champion of our sport, always willing to discuss technique and strategy with other old timers as well as any newbies. Previously he enjoyed driving and competing in his Miata and before that an RSX.

He was a gentleman, enthusiast, and as kind and caring of an individual as one could ever meet. A real asset to our community. A clear case of life just not being fair.

His wife Chris shared that should anyone care to donate to St. Vincent de Paul in his name, that would be great. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

A short memorial for all friends of Mike will be held Wednesday April 6th at 2:00pm, at the Prince of Peace Church in Sun City West……14818 W. Deer Valley Drive. Any cards could be sent to Chris Rogers, 12414 W Morning Dove Drive, Sun City West, AZ 85375-1936.

Thank you all.
