Donnie Mack Rogers, 53, of Madison, Alabama, formally of Andalusia, left this world behind on Thursday November 16, 2023 in the arms of his loving and devoted spouse of 16 years, Earl Swain. Donnie was born on March 3, 1970 to Leslie "Buddy" and Irene Rogers. He grew up in Andalusia, Alabama where he graduated from Pleasant Home School in 1989. He entered into the the Southwest Alabama Police Academy and graduated in 1993. Donnie spent his law enforcement career with the Covington County Sherriff's department and achieved the rank of Chief Deputy before his departure from the Sherriff's office in 2001. Donnie was very proud of his achievements in his law enforcement career. After meeting Earl in 2007, Donnie relocated to the Huntsville/Madison area in 2010 where he worked for Waffle House and Mapco before his retirement in 2021.
Donnie never met a stranger, could talk to anyone and lit up every room with his infectious laughter. He forged many meaningful relationships throughout his life and was adored by so many. Anyone who knew Donnie knows how special, wonderful, funny, and devoted he was to everyone, but especially, to Earl, Holly, and his family. Donnie loved all things cars, NASCAR, country music, Alabama football, and hubcaps. Donnie fought a brave battle with cancer with a smile on his face, positive attitude, and not one complaint.
Left to cherish his memory are his Spouse, Earl Swain, Daughter Holly Nicole Rogers, Parents Buddy and Irene Rogers, Sisters Kimberly (Todd) Killough, Karen (Mark) Pugh, Brother Billy Rogers, Sisters In Law Jamie Leigh Swain, Jennifer (Rod) Swain Disko, In-Laws Walter and Robyn Swain, Brother In Law Paul Swain, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and little dog Shelby.
The family would like to thank the emergency services of Madison and Madison Hospital for the great care of Donnie. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
