Jim Craver officiating. A private interment will take place at a later date. Damon was born on November 7, 1932 in Concho County, Texas to Alfred and Thelma (Cagle) Rodgers. Damon’s father was a migrant farmer and as such, Damon grew up in a variety of places, graduating from High School in New Mexico. After graduation, Damon joined the United States Air Force and was stationed at Randolph Brooks in San Antonio. It was here that Damon met his wife Tootsie, on a double date to the Varsity. They married on July 1, 1951. Shortly afterwards, Damon was deployed to Korea where he spent 18 months during the conflict, earning several service medals. After his return and honorable discharge, Damon went to work in Seguin at the Coca Cola bottling plant. He then bought a franchise of Humble Oil & Gas, and had a service station. He then sold life insurance through Prudential. Damon left the insurance game to sell automotive paint and body equipment. It was through this that Damon met Paul Schlender and came to work for him at Paul’s Paint & Glass, a company he retired from at the age of 81. Damon was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to fish, dove hunt, and work in the yard. He was also a skilled woodworker, and spent much of his time in his shop, with his grandchildren, whom he adored. Damon is preceded in death by his son, Dudley Rodgers, granddaughter, Lily Garrison, his parents, and brothers, Dale and Jimmy Rodgers. He is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Tootsie Rodgers; daughters, Gail Herbold and husband, Mark, Lisa Warren and husband, Johnny; grandchildren, Neal Herbold and wife, Courtney, Lacy Herbold, and Amber Land; sisters, Virginia Roberts and Nancy Rodgers, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
