Freddie J. Rodgers, Jr.​

Freddie J. Rodgers, Jr. was born to Freddie and Hurtis Rodgers on August 10, 1985 in Hayti, Missouri.  He departed this life on February 12, 2017.

Freddie was a 2005 graduate of Caruthersville High School.  He worked at Trinity Marine over 3 years until his untimely death.  He was a loving and protective father.  Freddie loved to shop and eat.  He was well liked by so many who got to know him. 

Freddie enjoyed hanging out with family and friends, although perceived to be quiet and bashful.  He was just the opposite when he got in his comfort zone with his fellas.  Freddie enjoyed his music, his truck, and yes his sporty ride-Man did he keep his ride clean.  He was a big Washington Redskins fan and didn’t mind showing it in his fashion.  He loved to dress casual, but fly.  When he turned his hat backwards, he was set to his relax mode.  He looked forward to stopping by his parent’s every day to see what was cooking because he loved to eat his parents’ cooking.

He leaves to cherish his memories – his parents, Freddie and Hurtis; his four children: Frazon Rodgers, Zakiyah Coats, Ke-Andre Rodgers, and Imani Rodgers; his siblings; Franklin (Julie) Williams, Edward Griffin, Billy Griffin, Don Griffin all of Caruthersville, Missouri, Jackie (Becky) Griffin of Omaha, Nebraska, Tammy Rodgers of Kennett, Missouri and Monica Covington of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  He had 11 nephews and 9 nieces and a host of uncles, aunts, relatives, and friends.

Funeral services were held of Thursday, February 16, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. with the Rev. Rick Rodgers, Missionary Barbara Rodgers and Pastor Jamie Jones officiating.  Interment followed in Morgan Ridge Cemetery.
