To Ruth & Family,
I just heard of Rogers passing and want to pass along my condolences. I was fortunate to have known Roger even for such a short period. He was unlike anyone I have ever had the opportunity to get to know. His laugh was infectious and his smile could light up the darkest of rooms. The way he spoke of his family and grandchildren was filled with pride, I can only imagine the loss you all must feel.. The place he has left in the hearts of those who knew him can never truly be filled. But, he will forever live on through the beautiful memories you have of him. It was a pleasure to have known Roger and all of you and I will take his memory with me in my career. Thinking of you all at this difficult time.

Ruth and Family,
I just heard of Rogers passing and wish to pass on my sincerest condolences at this time. I may have only known Roger for a short time, but it felt like I had known him a lifetime. His charming smile and infectious, warm personality is one I won’t soon forget. He spoke of his work and family with such pride and compassion, I can only imagine the loss you all must feel. It was a privilege and a pleasure to have known Roger and all of you, I think of you all often. May his memory bring you comfort during this difficult time.

The Knee family: Sorry to hear of Rogers passing. Please accept our sincere condolences. I knew Roger through dealings with him at Greenwood. He was a sincere and friendly individual and a pleasure to deal with. I know he will definitely be missed by his family and friends.

Ruth, Robin, April, Lily and Family! I find it so hard to swallow that Roger was taken so soon. He was such a nice man who welcomed us each and every time we came to visit. It’s not going to be the same when we visit again. I know my boys will even wonder where he is when we visit , As he always made a point to have a chat with them. Keep your memories close to your heart as there are so many of them. Thinking of you all at this difficult time. Xoxo

Ruth, Hubert, Robin and families,

Sharon and I were saddened to hear of Roger’s illness some time ago. We were more surprised to have now read this evening in the Telegram of his passing. I very much enjoyed each time Roger and I had a yarn and shared stories and humor. I was also very grateful for his generosity in ploughing my vegetable garden over the past few years. His friendship to me was very much appreciated. Please accept our sincerest condolences on his passing.

Sending sincere condolences to you Ruthie and family! May his memories bring you comfort in the coming days!

I just heard of Roger’s passing and wish to pass along my condolences to Ruth and family.
He had many friends in the building supply industry and beyond and I will always remember him saying to me many times “come down to the house for supper and stay for the night”.
When I would leave his company I sometimes found a big salt fish or vegetables in my vehicle.
My thoughts are with the family and many friends.

sorry for your loss off a love one rip

Ruth and family. It is with sadness that I pass along my sincere condolences to you after reading Roger’s obituary today. I was actually on this site reading about Carol Philpot, a friend of my family, when I saw that Roger had passed. I knew him during his time in the building supply business and always enjoyed our chats. Thinking of you and family.

Ruth ,Pam, Robin and Heather and family, I am so shocked and saddened to read of Roger passing . Cherish all the wonderful memories of him , as I know there are many. Thinking of you all at this most difficult time and the days ahead.
Please accept our sincere condolences.

Roger and I met through business, however anyone that knows Roger, that is just an introduction for a personal relationship that meant not only visiting Roger in his office, but at his home for a “feed”.
I immediately felt a friendly warmth with Roger of a guy that would always have your back, while still being straight with you.
My condolences to his family that he always spoke of and cherished. If imitation is the act of flattery, I have and will continue to recount Roger’s comments to me over the years.
RIP my friend.
Carl and Donna Burt and family

My condolences to all the family on this sad day. My memories of Roger were filled with good times life lessons and happiness. Growing up with all of his children, I have fond memories of Roger being a man of integrity and positivity. He was a hard worker and his family always showed kindness to me. My heart goes out to Roy, Robin, Heather and Pam as well as Ruth and the grandchildren.
I can still hear him laugh when he saw me riding across the yard on a horse he had gotten for his kids holding on for dear life (obviously not knowing what I was doing). Lol.
I wish you all the best on this sad day.

So sorry to learn of Roger’s passing-May he Rest In Peace. Kathy and I extend our condolances to all the Knee and Collins family.
