Kenny Rogers Jr. Biography, Kenny Rogers Son Kenny Rogers Jr. Wiki
Kenny Rogers Jr. born Kenneth Ray Rogers II is the son of Kenny Rogers and Margo Anderson. He is an American actor and composer. According to his IMDB profile, he is known for Up All Night (2014), Shenanigans (1995) and Get Him to the Greek (2010).
In his later years, Rogers expressed remorse for sacrificing family time in order to achieve that success, especially time spent with sons Kenny Jr. and Christopher Cody. He told the Boot in 2013, “I missed an important part of their life. I look back on my career and I say, ‘Suppose I hadn’t been selfish? Suppose I had been the father I should have been, would I be here today?’ There’s a point where you have to say, ‘It doesn’t matter what I did.’”
Rogers further told Country Rebel that it’s a “fine line” when he talks about regret because his career was also important. “I had two other wives and two other children. I was gone all the time, and that wasn’t fair to them. I don’t know that I’d be where I am if I hadn’t done that, so that’s why I say it’s a fine line.”
It was not clear whether Rogers’ two older sons were present when he died. The official statement announcing his death said that Rogers “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family.” But it did not specify which family members were there. The statement went on, “The family is planning a small private service at this time out of concern for the national COVID-19 emergency. They look forward to celebrating Kenny’s life publicly with his friends and fans at a later date.”
