Death on Yom Kippur

“William D. Rogers, a lawyer who helped plan the Kennedy and Johnson administrations’ approach to Latin America and then served as a principal policymaker for the region during the Ford administration, died Sept. 22 near his home in Upperville, Va. He was 80.

Mr. Rogers, a devotee of fox hunting, died during a hunt after suffering a heart attack while riding his favorite horse, Isaiah, his son William said….

His son William said his father was declared dead almost immediately by a doctor participating in the fox hunt. An Episcopal priest was called, the hounds were collected and the hunters gathered for a short service on the spot.

‘One by one, they rode past him and tipped their hats,’ William said.”
