A celebration of his life will be held at the Hurleyville Fire Department, 166 Main Street, Hurleyville NY 12747, on Friday, December 6th from 3:00 - 7:00.


John was born in Harris Hospital to Kathy Weigand Rogers on April 20, 1980. A 1998 graduate of Fallsburg High School. He enjoyed cooking, golfing, playing tennis, watching his teams the Yankees and Jets, and very much enjoyed spending time with family and friends.  He had an extensive sneaker (Nike) collection, at least a pair for every day of the month.  He was known for having a great sense of style, and even better sense of humor; he was the life of the party. John was very loved by many.
