Joseph (Will) Rogers, 85, of Woodbridge, Virginia, passed away on June 3, 2021, of complications of Parkinson’s Disease, with his family at his bedside.
Will was born in Baltimore, Maryland on September 8, 1935 to Joseph Rogers and Mildred Gerbig Rogers. He grew up in the Baltimore area, graduating from Catonsville High School in 1953.
