James G. "Casey" Rogers left the earth peacefully Tuesday evening, Nov. 2, 2021. He and his loving wife, Adelia, were watching the ninth inning of the Atlanta Braves' game as they were winning the World Series.

    Casey had a love for hunting and was a member of the "Kill em’ All" hunting club.
    He always said he was doing his part to keep you safe on the highways. He was known as Taz to his fellow troopers, but to his family, he was "The Energizer Bunny" and also "Mr. Fixit" and could and would tackle anything with great success.
