    I am so saddened to hear of Roger's passing. I had the pleasure of getting to know Roger at 97 St pub years ago and then he became a trivia regular in our pub Mickie's. He will be missed dearly. Deepest condolences to the family from myself and all the staff at Mickie's Pub.

    Kristy and family,
    So sorry to hear about the passing of Roger. I spent many afternoons visiting with him at our favourite watering holes listening to his jokes and stories of his two little men; William and Alexander. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    I am saddened to hear of the loss of Roger. I played a lot of golf with Roger in the three years I spent at Shannon Lake. I also served "Mr. Golf" the occasional pint at the course and later at 97st Pub. I have many fond memories Roger and I will miss him

    I am so sorry to hear about your dad's passing. I worked for him at Shannon Lake as the superintendant from the time him and his dad[Bob], your grandfather bought in to it in the late 80's. I left there in 92, but Roger and I stayed friends. We had some great times together.My thoughts are with you and your family.

He came over for a glass of Wine and brought a cake with him to celebrate the naming of the street, and on the cake he had them write. "It's Fun To Arrive On Helgason Drive" Sincere Condolences.
