In Loving Memory ~

Passed away peacefully on Feb. 21, 2024 at Chilliwack General Hospital.

He is survived by his wife Beth, niece Megan Locke and grand niece Charlotte. His sister Anne, and only sibling, predeceased him.

Roger was born in Crosby, England on Dec. 6, 1948 but was brought to Belleville, Ontario as an infant. He grew up in Belleville and served for a time in the military, but he didn't stay.

He came to B.C. and earned a B.A. from Simon Fraser University in 1975 and was President of the Student Union while on campus.

Roger had many job titles in both B.C. and Ontario, from economic consultant to businesses and provincial governments in B.C. and Ontario, to owning and operating a small northern transport airline in Ontario and a popular pub in downtown Vancouver. Along with his friend, Gary Colosimo, he operated a shingle business on Vancouver Island. He was in the process of selling his latest business venture, which he had created, and finally retire.

These past few years Roger was a volunteer driver for Agassiz Community Service. He was a member of the Agassiz Legion.

Above all, Roger was a very caring person. He was a good friend and a good listener, giving support and help to those who asked for it.

Roger was a loving husband and is dearly missed.
