The Passing of Brian "Lee" Rogers
Submitted By Joanne Wilson on Tuesday, May 26, 2020
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of Lee Rodgers.  

Lee passed away suddenly May 19th, 2020 with complications from a rare form of blood cancer.  

Lee was a great official.  He was a great mentor to many. Lee made officiating fun and is the reason that so many got into the role of officiating. He was a joy to be around and we know many of you would agree with that.  Most importantly he was a tremendous person and was a great friend to many of us and will truly be missed. 

We extend our condolences to Steven and the rest of the family.  

We lost a legend. RIP LeeRoy
