Due to health complications Roger died peacefully in Almonte on February 3rd, 2017 at the age of 68. Roger is survived by his loving family, daughter Wendy, sons Scott (Natalie) and Joe (Julie). He will be deeply missed by his grandchildren Brayden, Ross and Brady whom he loved dearly.

Roger was born in Collingwood in 1948; he began his career in telecommunications with Northern Electric in 1967 and moved on to Bell Canada from which he retired in 2000. Roger was fortunate and thankful to be the recipient of a double lung transplant in 2013 after developing Pulmonary Fibrosis.
