With great sadness we announce that Gregory Scott Rogers, age 59, of McKinney, Texas, passed away on February 6, 2024. Greg will be deeply missed and was loved by so many. 

Greg was born May 6, 1964 to parents Doyle and Lenda Rogers at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, AZ. His life took him to North Bay, Ontario, Canada where he became a big brother to his sister, Deidra. Their journey took them back to his grandparents town of Savoy, TX while his dad served in Thailand. Florida became his next home, then on to South Carolina where he began school and finally back to DeSoto, TX where he graduated from DeSoto High School in 1982. 

Greg attended Stephen F. Austin College and then returned to Dallas where he began working for the Dallas Times Herald and the Dallas Morning News. He remained there for 40 years until his passing. He truly did see the change of times.
