To Karen, Craig, Keith, Dave and Bob,

Our condolences from our family to yours. Dad always had a special relationship with Roger and enjoyed the many coffees they shared and their regular evening telephone chats. If there is any comfort in the loss of both of them in such close timing, it is that they can meet up at Tim Hortons in heaven.

Rest in peace Roger.

To Roger’s Family, David and Bob.
We’re so sorry to hear about Roger’s passing. We were friends back in the ’50 s and ’60 s. I still remember his phone call in 1962 when he told me that they had just announced that “Buddy Holly” had died in a plane crash.
Rest in peace Roger.
Ian, Cynthia and Andrew Garland.

Keith, Craig and Karen. So sorry to hear the news and sorry for the loss. I will always remember the great times when we were younger and all that Rog had done over the year’s. All my best and may Roger rest in peace!

So sorry to learn about Roger. I haven’t seen him for a long time especially since I moved to BC several years ago. We were good friends for many years ever since our days at United Collegiate. I always enjoyed his company and he will be missed by all who knew him.


To Roger’s family: Please accept my condolences on Roger’s death. He and I were classmates at United Collegiate in the early 1960’s and our paths crossed several times in the years following. I remember him as being pleasant and kind whenever we met.

Condolences to the family Roger was an older cousin that I looked up to, always admired his intellect , he was a loved cousin and to lose him and Uncle Len in the space of three days certainly makes you pause for thought. RIP Roger

Karen, Craig, Keith: So sorry for your great loss, your dad and my younger brother Rog. It’s been surreal around here today as we try to come to terms with him being gone from this earth. But one thing I do know is that Rog is in the presence of Jesus and the first person he saw was your mother Betty and Len, Mom, Nan, Grandad and many more. What a reunion that must have been early this morning. I will always treasure the last visit I had with him in December when I was there; and last week on the phone. I am flooded with memories of him when he was younger and healthier and the magnificent father that he was to you guys. My kids loved him so much because he always included them in the frolicking. Everyone here knows him as “Rog.” We will all miss him so very much. We love you guys. Please let me know how we can help. God bless you all. Dave, Maureen, and the kids.
