Leslie Rogers Death, Obituary – On September 27, 2021, at the age of 69, Leslie R. Rogers, who resided in Nampa, died away without suffering while surrounded by his loved ones. Orville and Mable Rogers welcomed their daughter Leslie into the world on November 28, 1951 in San Diego, California. Leslie spent her childhood in Ventura. In 1968, he uprooted his life and relocated to Idaho, where he attended NNU and received his bachelor’s degree in business administration.
Leslie began working for the State of Idaho in July 1977, and she remained there until she retired in November 2012, making her first appearance there in July 1977. His whole career in the state government was spent working for the same department, the Department of Labor and Industrial Services (DLIS), which later transitioned into the Division of Building Safety. (DBS). His first work was in purchasing as an account technician, and the office was entirely staffed by women. He was the only man there. In the end, he was the first person in that agency to work in the field of information technology and he was the one who bought the first computers for the DLIS.
Leslie’s friends regularly asked him to shoot their special occasions, such as weddings, graduations, and other events, so he indulged his passion for photography and did so. In addition to that, he enjoyed shooting targets, collecting stamps, and riding trains. It was something he looked forward to doing both for enjoyment and for his career, which required him to travel all across the state. Road trips were one of his favorite things to do. He developed a deep affection for tigers over the course of his life, particularly the Bengal tigers Enzo and Diego who live in South Africa.
Leslie was a man of deep faith who never cursed or spoke anything malicious about another person. He also never used foul language. He was a really compassionate and sensitive person who yet had a big amount of stubbornness in him. When solicited for assistance, he graciously offered his time to assist others. Despite all of the challenges he faced with his health, Leslie has always kept an extremely optimistic attitude on life.
During Leslie’s stay with them, the employees at Wellspring Health and Rehabilitation of Cascadia in Nampa showed her exceptional care, generosity, and friendship. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of them. He left an impression on the lives of so many people, and they will all miss him.
His mother and father passed away before he did. He never saw them again. On Thursday, October 14th, at 2:00 PM, graveside services will be held at Kohler Lawn Cemetery, which is located at 76 6th St. N in Nampa. In place of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to the wildlife organization of your choice.
