REMEMBERING OUR BELOVED CURTIS RODGERS, A.K.A. “COOKIE”
Loving, kind and funny are some of the words local residents are saying to describe Curtis “Cookie” Rodgers, who could be found helping out at Pioneer Super Market, as well as other shops on Lafayette and Grand Avenues nearly seven days a week.
Cookie passed away on Sunday, November 20 in his mid-50s. His friends, family, coworkers and customers describe him as friendly, community-oriented, uplifting, humorous, and a big-hearted man with a smile on his face always.
A wake will take place for Curtis “Cookie” Rodgers on Tuesday November 30 from 1:00 pm until 7:30 pm at Dekalb Funeral Services (Dekalb and Franklin Avenues), located at 491 Dekalb Avenue, (on the border of Clinton Hill & Bed Stuy) Brooklyn 11205 - (718) 230-3147.
A Funeral Service for Cookie is also planned from 10 am until 12 pm on Wednesday, December 1 at Emmanuel Baptist Church, located at 279 Lafayette Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn 11238 - (718) 622-1107. A final viewing is scheduled from 9:00 am - 10:00 am prior to the funeral service (also at EBC).
Below are a few comments posted on Facebook about Cookie last week:
“Our friend Cookie died on Sunday. Probably the first person I met when I moved to Clinton Hill back in '05. Lesson: you don't need to have $ or a PhD to show someone you care.”
“I remember Cookie :-( sorry to hear.”
“Many happy bk moments involving cookie!”
“Sorry to hear that. Just remember that you were lucky enough to be in his life, as I am sure he will always be in yours.”
“I remember him too, funny, crazy guy. bless his soul...”
