February 10, 1963 — January 13, 2017

Victor Marsetti Rodgers of Strong, Arkansas, passed away on Friday, January 13, 2017 at Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Pine Bluff, AR. He was 53 years old. He was born on February 10, 1963, in El Dorado, AR, to Clarence (Bud) Wilbert Rodgers and Claudia Faye Thigpen-Rodgers. He was baptized at Saint James Baptist Church at an early age. Marsetti was affable, comedic, nonjudgmental, and loving. He never met a stranger, and all who came in contact with him, marveled at his outgoing disposition. He found joy in gathering with his family and friends. He was not one to look back on his life with regrets but found solace in knowing that he took responsibility for every decision he made. His good nature, compassion, and zest for life will be indelible inked on the hearts of all who loved him. Marsetti was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Claudia Rodgers, two sisters, Carolyn Rodgers and Carolyn McClelland, and two brothers, Quentin Rodgers and Keith Bishop.
