(Cedar Springs) Aaron D. Rogers, age 42, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, on Wednesday, July 3, 2013. Aaron was a 1988 graduate of Rockford High School . As a young boy and throughout his life, he had a natural talent for art. In 1994 he wrote a letter to his mom telling her that he had accepted Christ as his personal Savior. He used his gift as an artist and worked for Baker Furniture Company as a decorator for their high-end furniture products and recently re-entered the furniture industry as an employee of Nucraft Furniture.
