To all the Fisets
Roger was one of the first people in town to help us out with our new home 5 years ago. Roger and I worked together at making a new driveway and helped me level out over 60 tonne of top soil. He was such a kind and gentle man and a pleasure to work with, we had a lot of respect for him and do to this day! Roger will be missed as he was a treasure of information. Our thoughts go out to the whole family at a time like this! We will be making a donation to the Salvation Army in his honour. God Bless

Please accept my condolences on Roger's passing. He was a good man who was concerned about his community. When I was younger, I got to know him and he treated me well. May you all find peace at this challenging time.
Rest in peace, Roger.

I am so sorry to read of Roger’s passing. It was a pleasure to meet him while he roomed with my Dad at the hospital and I am thinking of you all with condolence during this difficult time.
