Ruston lost a legend earlier this week with the passing of a longtime business owner.
Bill Rogers was born Dec. 21, 1928, in Smackover, Arkansas, and passed away in his Ruston home on Sunday.
A friend of Rogers for more than 30 years, Sadie Kincannon remembered back on fond times.
“The only thing I can say is that he and I went back and forth at each other for 32 years, but once I retired at the age of 80 we became the best of friends,” she said. “We always told one another we loved each other and in the last few years had more fun than we’d had in years. We had become very close.”
