Traditional Catholic Dad Killed in Car Accident, Driving Wife to Deliver 8th Child!

Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord

Written by  Dominic and Cecilia Gruetzmacher

Our long-time friends from church, were driving to the hospital early this morning [4/17/2015] with their seven children, in anticipation of welcoming an eighth child into their beautiful family. On the way, an oncoming car hit a deer which was thrown into the Rogans’ vehicle.  Mike did not survive the accident. Niki and the children survived with only minor injuries. Niki gave birth to their son, Blaise, hours after the accident.
Mike served as a corporal in the US Marine Corps and was promoted to sergeant while remaining on with the Reserves. He applied the motto, “Semper Fi” to all aspects of his life, faithfully serving God, country, and family.

Niki is a stay-at-home mom and homeschools her children who range in age from newborn to 15 years, and is left with providing for her family aided by only a minimal life insurance policy.

Please help us reach out and support this family in this time of profound loss. Your donations will be used to buy a replacement vehicle, to pay for funeral and medical expenses, and to create a safety net for the future welfare of the family. All donations will be transferred directly to Niki.
