Bobby Rodgers Obituary

Mr. Bobby Aaron Rodgers, age 88 of Pittsboro, North Carolina entered eternal rest on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at UNC Chapel Hill hospital.

Bobby Aaron Rodgers, the son of the late Cora Johnson, was born in Chatham County, N.C., on July 25, 1935. He and his brother, Harold Rodgers, were raised by their grandparents, Louvenia Crutchfield Rodgers and George Rodgers in Pittsboro, N.C.

For a better chance at life, Bobby’s grandmother sent him to New York, where he welcomed his first child, Bobby Anthony, on January 27, 1960. He later married Flora Rodgers on August 22, 1964, and from this union came three children: Aaron Maurice, Kymberlyn, and Tanya.

While in New York, Bobby worked both as a part-time taxi driver and a full-time MTA worker. His twenty-eight-year tenure at M.A.B.S.T.O.A, is where he found joy as a bus driver and forged lasting friendships. Upon retirement, he returned to Pittsboro, reconnecting with old friends and forming new bonds.

Bobby came from very humble beginnings. In his words, "we were poor, we ain't have nothin'." Despite these challenges, he took pride in creating opportunities for his children and grandchildren, aiming to provide what he lacked in his own upbringing. With limited formal education, he built a fulfilling life for his family, showcasing resilience and determination.

Known for "The Bobby Rodgers Experience," Bobby was a unique storyteller, offering advice, laughter, and memorable moments.

Closing your eyes, I'm pretty sure you can picture him in his navy blue retirement shirt, denim jeans, and a cap. He loved the life he built here in North Carolina, and most importantly, cherished those closest to him.

Bobby was a loving and present son, grandson, brother, uncle, father, and grandfather, accomplishing many goals and caring for his family no matter the circumstances. His strength and determination are an inspiration to us all, and his hard work has paved the way for generations to come.

He leaves behind a sister, Sherlyn Taylor of Lawrenceville G.A; four children: two sons, Bobby Anthony McKelvin of Syracuse NY and Aaron Maurice Rodgers of Long Island NY; and two daughters, Kymberlyn Denise Rodgers of Brooklyn, NY and Tanya Charmaine Rodgers of Pembroke Pines, FL; eleven grandchildren, Bobby A McKelvin of Syracuse, NY, Latoya McKelvin-Westpoint of San Diego, CA, Kamrey McKelvin of Syracuse, NY, Karmelo McKelvin of Syracuse, NY, Aaron M Rodgers of Long Island, NY, Joshua M Rodgers of Long Island, NY, David M Rodgers of Long Island, NY, Kiyomi I Rodgers Deniston of Washington, DC, Jaelyn N Rodgers Denniston of Long Island, NY, Justin I Rodgers Denniston of Long Island, NY, and Jahze E Rawlins of Orlando, FL; four great grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
