Thomas was born on July 29, 1934 in Theresa, New York, son of the late Edwin and Etha (Thorton) Rogers. He graduated from Hammond Central School. He was employed as a trammer operator with Gouverneur Talc for 26 years, until retiring in 1988 due to a disability. On August 18, 1953 he married Faith Bresett at the Gouverneur Methodist Ministry.

Thomas was predeceased by his parents Edwin and Etha; 3 brothers, David, Warren, Cecil Rogers; 3 sisters Ida (Clifford) Hamilton, Bertha (Milton) Marcellus, and Iva Moyer; and a great-granddaughter, Ava Riley Graveline.
