October 19, 2004

Daniel Stacy Rogers, a retired public information officer who enjoyed singing barbershop classics, died of pneumonia Thursday at St. Joseph Medical Center. The Carney resident was 68.

Mr. Rogers was born in Houston and raised there and in Denver. After graduating from the University of Denver in 1962 with a bachelor's degree in journalism, he moved to Washington and worked briefly reading copy for the Wall Street Journal.

In the mid-1960s, the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda hired him. In 1968, he became the first public information officer at its newly established National Institute on Aging Gerontology Research Center on the grounds of the old Baltimore City Hospitals-now Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. He retired in 1994.

Mr. Rogers was a member of the community relations committee of the Health Action Project at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. He also was a volunteer reader at Goucher College, where he recorded textbooks for blind students.

Since 1986, Mr. Rogers, a tenor, enjoyed singing and performing with the Harbor City Chorus.

He was a parishioner and lector at St. Isaac Jogues Roman Catholic Church, 9400 Old Harford Road, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10:30 a.m. today.

Survivors include his wife of 38 years, the former Sylvia Tuttle; a son, Michael Len Rogers of Carney; a daughter, Nicole Jeffries of Westminster; and a granddaughter.
