James W. "Jim" Rodgers

of North Little Rock, AR, 1948 - 2019

James W. "Jim" Rodgers transitioned home with his Lord and Savior Sunday, March 24, 2019. The youngest of seven siblings, he was born April 10, 1948 in Crossett, Arkansas and preceded in death by his parents Hudson and Bertha Rodgers, as well as brothers Tommy and Roy.
He is survived by Betty, his loving wife of fifty-three years, two sons Patrick and Paul, sister Betty Christmas, brothers Bill, Don, and Charles, a host of dear nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, grandson Matthew, granddaughters Lauren and Alyssa, and great-granddaughter Emma.
Although he had a love for business and created success in many fields, Jim's greatest passions were time spent with family, friends, and pastors. He was an avid sportsman and loved to play golf, fish, hunt, camp and cheer for his beloved Razorbacks. Jim was widely known and dearly loved for his generosity, charm, quick wit, and entertaining talent for producing elaborate stories and hoaxes.
Visitation and funeral services will be held at First Assembly of God, North Little Rock at 9:30 and 11 a.m., respectively, on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the HHS Honors Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 30, Hamburg, Ark. 71646. Online guestbook is available at
