Charles ‘Howard’ Rogers, 81 of Cascade recently passed. His daughter, Bernie was an exceptional Camp Courageous counselor. Howard’s son, Kevin, was a camper during Muscular Dystrophy Weeks.
I remember Howard, Kevin, and Bernie going with me to Des Moines for the Variety Club Telethon in the early 80s….the picture is actually on my wall in my office… I learned first hand from that trip how one needed to look for accessible ways to sidewalks, buildings, bathrooms, and so much more. Howard taught me, through his actions, more than he could ever realize. He had a heart of gold. Howard was a wonderful person, and he will be dearly missed.
