Roy Rogers (born Leonard Franklin Slye; November 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998) was an American singer and cowboy actor who was one of the most popular Western stars of his era. Known as the "King of the Cowboys", he appeared in over 100 films and numerous radio and television episodes of The Roy Rogers Show. In many of his films and television episodes, he appeared with his wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino Trigger, and his German Shepherd dog Bullet. His show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television from 1951 through 1957. His productions usually featured a sidekick, often Pat Brady, Andy Devine, or George "Gabby" Hayes. In his later years, Rogers lent his name to the Roy Rogers Restaurants franchised chain.

God surely did bless Roy and his family. I plan to meat him in heaven one day. He was a blessing to many. I still miss him as an adult.He was a true champion in my eyes.

While in service, NY day 1952 was at Rose Parade when Roy and Dale rode horses in....I, 18 yrs old,holding a young boy up so he could see...Dale leaned over and commented she and Roy had one the same age.......at half time of Standfor/Illinois game I was in line for coke behind Gene Autry...my day out witht eh western stars!

Roy Rogers was born in 1911, which would make him too young to serve in WW1. By the time WW2 came around, he was 30 years old, so likely would neverhave been drafted,
