Thomas Patrick Rogers was born on March 8, 1959 to his proud parents, the late Sylvia B. Rogers and John D. Rogers. He was called home on Thursday, December 19, 2019 at the age of 60 years old.
A resident of Edgewater, NJ, Thomas spent the last 30 years, learning about sound waves and its effects on music. During this time he attended school at Old Dominion University to study Electrical/Sound Engineering. Tom was gifted with his knowledge of sound engineering and was able to build his RTOM Company from nothing to a successful music instrument business.
Thomas also has a number of patents on products he created.
Prior to his years in New Jersey, Thomas, like his father, spent time in the US Navy and later worked for the Bose Corporation. Thomas also lived in Japan for a number of years after he was discharged from the Navy in 1979.
Thomas also leaves to cherish his memory: two sisters, Deborah Brand; Diane Kinzie; 2 brothers-in-law; his best friend, Dr. Frank Starks; his loving caregiver/nurse, Juliana Caesar of 6 ½ years, Regina Robinson of 3 years and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends too numerous to mention.
