Steven W. Rogers lost a 14-month heroic battle with cancer on Sept. 29 at the age of 64.  A native of Hampton IA, Steve attended Ellsworth Jr College, Drake Univ. and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Simpson College in Business Mgt.   Steve began his career with MidAmerican Energy (then Iowa Power) in 1973, retiring in 2008 from the Bettendorf District Mgr. position.


Steve enjoyed playing sports.  His favorite was baseball.  Steve still holds the pitching ERA record from his H.S.  He was recognized for his skill in tennis, golf and volleyball.  An avid scuba diver, Steve loved the ocean and spent many vacations fulfilling this passion.
