Rogers Joseph Prevot, age 82, passed away on January 12, 2017 at his home with family and loved ones at his side. He peacefully departed this life to begin his life anew with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his departed family and friends in Heaven. He was born on November 23, 1934 in Mansura. He graduated from Mansura High School in May of 1953 and attended Louisiana State University where he majored in Agriculture and Animal Sciences. He married his beloved and devoted wife, Patricia Moreau Prevot, on April 7, 1956. Rogers served in the United States Army in the late 1950’s at the end of the Korean War and the beginning of the Viet Nam War. He spent most of his career managing a river supply company on the Mississippi River in Baton Rouge. He was well known by riverboat captains on the river from New Orleans to St. Louis for his wit, humor and friendly nature.
