Roger, with his first wife Janet, immigrated to Canada in 1968, settling in London before moving to Thamesford in 1975. He made lifelong friends with fellow residents who had also moved into the “new subdivision”. Roger worked in the commercial insurance business, both in England and in Canada, retiring in 2005. He enjoyed bird watching, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
