Joe Rogers, the co-founder of the Waffle House chain of restaurants, passed away last Friday.

He was 97-years-old. He is survived by his wife, four children, nine grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren!

There are no details of the cause of his death yet.

Rogers helped start Waffle House in 1955 with his neighbor Tom Forkner. His motto for the business was always: ““We’re not in the restaurant business. We’re in the people business.”

Waffle House fans expressed their dismay for Rogers’s passing over Twitter:

Waffle House’s fare is always delicious and freshly made. Check out one of their short-order cook’s incredible skill with producing yummy, buttery breakfasts!

Waffle House is an American staple, and Rogers can go to the afterlife knowing his creation is beloved by many.
