Kendall Duane Rogers peacefully passed away in the comforts of his home on September 19, 2018 after a difficult battle with cancer.

He was surrounded by family and loved ones. He was 81 years old. Kendall was born on December 23, 1936 and was a lifelong Saline (York Township) resident and farmer.

He attended Saline Area Schools graduating in 1955, where he was a proud member of the FFA and Saline Steer Club. After high school he married Janet Mae Luckhardt on June 1956. They had three children Keith, Kathy and Kaye.


Born in San Jose, CA, Helen grew up in the San Francisco area where she worked as a telephone operator. In 1943, she married her lifelong love, Wallace Seitz, a soldier from Maybee, MI training nearby. When he was sent overseas, she transferred her job to Monroe to await his return. A city girl, she bravely faced the challenges of a new home in a farming community across the country from her family, a first encounter with snow, and then the horror of a telegram stating Wallace was MIA.
