Rogers was 74 years old when he died of stomach cancer in 2003.

He is remembered for teaching children about kindness and life lessons through songs and lectures in his Mister Roger’s Neighborhood show that ran from 1968 to 2001.

Rodger’s popularity experienced a resurgence thanks to the 2019 biopic A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, in which Tom Hanks played the role of television star.

Rodger’s wife, Joanne is now 91 and spoke cordially to People about the man she was married to for 51 years.

“People were important to him,” Joanne Rogers told People Magazine in November for the inaugural Kindness Issue. “He was for me and for the family he is for everyone.”

Rogers married Joanne, a pianist, in 1952, and they had two sons. The couple stayed together until his death.

“If Fred found out that a friend was sick, he would call and visit regularly,” she said. “When a high school friend in South Carolina had cancer, Fred went, even though he had injured his ankle and was on crutches. It was very important that Fred was there. ‘
