Family was everything to Roger and he proudly bragged about his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to anyone who would listen. His love for his wife, Anne, was always evident but especially in the last few years as he cared for her as she began her journey with Alzheimer's. Roger started from humble beginnings and through determination and skill he rose up the ranks in the printing business in order to provide a wonderful life for the family he cherished so much. Roger balanced his corporate life with a woodworking hobby that upon his retirement became a joint business venture with his wife...Roger created the wood pieces and Anne painted them. The collaboration of their art and skill created wonderful pieces which continue to bless many of our homes. Dad's legacy will carrying on in the strong sense of family, humour and character that he instilled in all of us.
