Carey Michael Rogers, 59, passed away Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at a local hospital. Carey was born in Hot Springs on July 18, 1958 to Will M. and Arlean P. Rogers.

He is survived by his mother; brother, William A. Rogers (Susie) of Granbury, TX; sisters, Wilma N. Bledsoe (George) and Marsha Rogers, both of Hot Springs; nieces, Geania Dickey (Matt) of Little Rock, Angelean Lenihan (Jimmy) of Rhode Island; nephews, Josh Rogers (Jennifer) of Connecticut, Zack Rogers (Shelly) of Texas; six great nephews and one great niece. Carey also leaves behind special friends, Betty Jo Cochran, Michael Burchfield, Phyllis and Jim Mills and Sara and Nick Elkins.

Carey lived in Arkadelphia at the Human Development Center until 2001 when he purchased his own home in Caddo Valley. Anyone who had the opportunity to meet and be with Carey for very long learned to love him because he was the sweetest and most loveable guy. Though he was nonverbal he could make himself known and he understood everything that was going on. Carey loved going to church and singing hymns in his own way. He was a member of First United Methodist Church of Hot Springs.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the employees and staff of Rainbow of Challenges and Rainbow Junction, the ICU staff at National Park Medical Center and the ICU Staff of Baptist Health Medical Center of Arkadelphia. A special thanks to all of his caregivers throughout the years, especially Audrey Bragg.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday December 30, 2017 at 10:30 A.M. at First United Methodist Church of Hot Springs.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to First United Methodist Church or Rainbow Challenges of Hope, Arkansas.
