A police officer should be remembered not by how he died but by how he lived! A great man has secured a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you for your law enforcement service, to your family, and to the Wilcox County Sheriff's Office. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Robert was such a good man and a blessing to all who knew him. He and his wife, Haley, were a perfect couple, so in love, and made each other an even more wonderful, stronger person. It was an honor to know him, and although we know he rests in heaven, his loss will be felt heavily here on earth.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Sheriff Rodgers family, both blood and blue! He was a true HERO to all, and will be rewarded as such when he meets his maker. I pray his blood family has support and strength for each other as they go down this long winding road they are now on. Just remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE, there are many others who have traveled that road before you and are more than willing to help you on your way. And remember that he is not alone, so many others have gone before him and have welcomed him as he made his journey to his forever home.
