Randall Rogers, 70, Greensburg, KY (d. September 11, 2009)

Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, Randall Rogers, 70, went to meet our Lord and Savior on Friday, September 11, 2009 due to complications following a kidney transplant. He was born to the late Calvin and Polly Rogers in Metcalfe County moving to Green County as a young boy where he lived the remainder of his life.

Randall is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Patricia Ann Paxton Judd Rogers of Greensburg, two daughters and sons-in-law, Dr. Machelle Manuel of St. Petersburg, FL and her husband, Todd; Deborah Judd Nunn of Greensburg, KY, and her husband, Phillip, and one son, Philip Thomas "Tommy" Judd and his wife Randi of Greensburg, KY. "Pa", as he was affectionately known by his four surviving grandchildren, leaves two grandsons and two granddaughters, Cody Nunn, Callee Nunn, Britanie Judd and Philip Thomas "P.T." Judd, all of Greensburg, KY. He is also survived by a mother-in-law, Flossie Beard of Greensburg and a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.

Randall was a dedicated and faithful Christian and an active member of Bethlehem Baptist Church. His personal ministry started with activities in his home church such as singing in the choir, running the sound board and playing guitar in the church band. He sang with various gospel quartets through the years.

He became involved in broader Kentucky Baptist Convention activities at the local Russell Creek Association level then made significant contributions to Baptist mission work at home and abroad. He actively participated and led many projects within the Convention's Brotherhood Department including Kentucky Baptist Builders, Disaster Relief and Royal Ambassadors.

Randall gave many hours to Baptist mission work travelling extensively throughout Kentucky and the United States sharing his faith and spreading God's message of love and redemption. Randall was an active member of the local Gideons International chapter. As his health failed, his participation in other activities slowed while he maintained activities in his home church, especially singing bass in the choir.

The Boy Scouts of America were the beneficiary of Randall's dedicated service. He guided and mentored his eldest grandson to the rank of Eagle Scout helping to develop a service project that built a pedestrian bridge at Wyatt Jefferies Woods that Governor Ernie Fletcher personally visited.

For 19 years, Randall worked as a machinist at International Harvester in Louisville until being injured in a serious automobile accident. He was a gifted craftsman who specialized in building custom furniture and reproduction cherry bedroom suits.Throughout his life, Randall repeatedly overcame physical challenges and inspired others with his courage, resilience and drive. In addition to spending time with his loving family, he loved to fish, garden, and bird watch. He will be missed and his memory fondly cherished.
