Sep 23, 1946 – Nov 18, 2017
Roger passed away suddenly at his home in Salmon Arm on November 18, 2017 at the age of 71.
He was the youngest child of Fred and Norah Williams of Creston B.C.
He is survived by his wife Janis (of 47 years), his sons Scott (Camilla) and Justin (Shasta), and his five cherished grandchildren; Laura, Sara, Matthew, Arianna and Ashton.
He was predeceased by his parents and his brother Earl.
Roger graduated as a mining engineer from the University of British Columbia in 1970 and worked in various locations such as Kimberley, Pine Point, Logan Lake, Kitsault, and Fernie before retiring to Salmon Arm in 2005.
Roger was an avid gardener and generously shared his produce with others.
He enjoyed building furniture, fishing, rock polishing, and jewellery making. Roger also played tennis, ping pong, pickle ball and badminton. Known for his good-natured teasing, joking and tall tales, there was never a dull moment when Roger was around! Roger will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129.
