For 42 years, Steve was employed by Locke Supply, retiring in 2015.
Retirement meant more time could be spent with his family. Steve was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great – grandfather and especially enjoyed playing with his grandchildren.
An active member of Langley’s South Grand Lake Christian Church, Steve’s desire to help other took the form of missionary work. He also lifted spirits up through music; playing guitar and giving special song performances with his wife, Debbie. Not only did they perform as a couple, Debbie and Steve (her “sexy boyfriend”, as she affectionately called him), loved traveling together, taking cruises, boating, fishing and cheering on the Sooners.
Friends and family will fondly remember Steve for his quick mind and sense of humor, as someone who liked reading, trivia and corn hole competitions, playing cards and games, wood – working and telling a good joke.
Steve is survived by his wife of 49 years, Debbie, son and daughter in law, Josh and Gina Rogers (Pryor, Oklahoma) daughter and son – in – law, Amie and Cliff Orcutt (Chouteau, Oklahoma) brother, Jeff Rogers and sister Kim Rogers (both of Paden, Oklahoma). His grandchildren include Elizabeth Anderson and Ayden Rogers, Noel, Brooklyn, Isabella, Quaid and Quincy Orcutt and a great granddaughter Jillian Woodell. He was preceded in death by his parents.
