Roger was raised in La Salle, and spent most of his life living there. He worked many years for PCL Construction on several of Winnipeg's largest projects. He took immense pride in helping build Winnipeg's skyline. After he retired, he continued working for others, building kitchen cabinets and maintaining his beloved yard. There was never a job he didn't tackle with fervour. He loved reading and spent many hours relaxing in his favourite chair. He was an avid football and baseball fan. He could be seen in the community, volunteering for the community centre and the church in La Salle.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, September 9, 2019 at the Christ The King Church, 847 St. Mary's Rd., Winnipeg, MB. Father Kevin Bettens presiding.

Ça me fait de la peine apprendre les nouvelles du décès de Roger. Toutes mes condoléances à toi et tes gars, Blanche! - Posted by: Michele Houston (Friend) on: Sep 08, 2019

Blanche, we are so sorry to see that Roger has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We always ran into Roger at Habitat after you had moved from LaSalle. It was such fun catching up on what you two were doing and where you had gone on your latest trip. LaSalle never seemed the same without him. He will be missed. - Posted by: Michael and Marie Sumner (friend) on: Sep 07, 2019
