Fred Rogers married the former Sarah Byrd in 1952, and they remained married until his death. They had two sons: James (born 1959) and John (b. 1961)… Comedian Eddie Murphy did a popular parody of Mister Rogers for the TV show Saturday Night Live… There is no truth to the rumor that Mister Rogers was once an Army sniper, a Marine or a Navy SEAL. (Similar untrue stories are told about John Denver and TV’s Captain Kangaroo.) Fred Rogers did not serve in the military in any capacity.
