Happy 50th Anniversary to Dr. Ronald (Butch) & Gayle Rogers

By Dr. Adam P. Rogers

A young man from Columbia and a young lady from Campbellsville met while lifeguarding at Green River Lake. They courted, became engaged, and eventually, on Friday, November 23, 1972, got married.

They moved to St. Louis so that Butch could attend Chiropractic school. While there, Gayle began working as a teller at a bank. This would foretell the beginning of two long careers.

After finishing school, they moved back to Columbia, to begin careers that would span over four decades. Gayle Rogers retired in 2019 after over 40 years at First & Farmers Bank, and Doc is still working to this day, 45 plus years later.


Even with such busy careers they have always made time to volunteer, serving on numerous local committees/boards, Chambers of Commerce, and City Council.

As they began to raise their two young boys, Adam and Matt, Doc could be found on the sidelines or dugout, coaching or working, and Gayle could be found helping in the concession stand, making food for the teams, or getting everything ready for the next games.

There wasn't a game home or away that they missed, even cheering on both boys as they competed in three sports throughout high school even cheered on their son Matt as he played football in college and won a National Championship.

They found time to take their boys to watch professional sports, on fun filled vacations, make lifetime memories as a family, while also being great friends to the many people they were blessed to have in their life.

Their two boys grew up to marry Columbia Girls--Lauren Glasgow Rogers and Leslie Bennett Rogers--and now that cheering continues as they can be regularly seen in the stands to watch their grandsons Bryant & Hudson play the many sports they are involved in.

The true spirit of love, dedication, and generosity embodies this great couple and we celebrate them today on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Their lives have and continue to impact countless people in this community and beyond.
