2_lebert_rogerRoger passed into the arms of the Lord on Saturday, November 26, 2016, at the age of 88 years, surrounded by the family who loves him.   Roger was married to Irene Mary Rouffer for 61 years.  Together they made many memories with their four children, Barbara and Jim, Betty and Mark, Keith and Kim, Brenda and Michel; their grandchildren David & Samantha, Jeremy & Sarah, Joshua & Amanda, James & Addie, Matthew & Sarah, Sondra & Jon, Jenna, Mara and Amanda Lynn; and his great-grandchild Lauren.  Roger is survived by very special family friend Emily Stefanczyk; his sister Eleanor; his sister-in-laws, May, Anne and Mary; along with many nieces and nephews who have fond memories of time spent with their uncle.

Roger was known for his zest for life, his energy, the countless projects he took on, the pride he took in a job well done, his spotless home and for enjoying time spent travelling with his family.  He danced through life with his love Irene and relished the experiences that came their way, facing any difficulties and challenges in a pragmatic fashion while ‘getting the job done.’  A holy man, Roger believed in his church, prayed the rosary for his family and friends each day and believed that his wealth was a heart and home filled with love.  We will miss our husband, father grandfather and great-grandfather, but are so happy that he has found his place in heaven.

The journey was filled with companions and we thank those who travelled with us making Roger’s last days comfortable.  To John Murray, many thanks for your gift of friendship.  To Dr. Day, Jody, Dr. Deklaj, Jesse,  Dr. Matthews, Pam, Dr. Pan, and Dr. Andary, thank you for your ongoing care and compassion.  To Karly from CCAC, you brought a smile to Roger’s face each day.  To Wendy, Anthony, Evan and Ryan of Windsor Regional’s 4th Floor, our thanks for your constant, caring attention.  To the wonderful people at Hospice, you are a gift to the community and were a true gift to us.  Thank you for taking care of ‘all of us’ as we journeyed with Roger.  And lastly, we thank Father Denis Wilhelm, Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish.  You are a special man and your heart, shared so generously with us, is appreciated more than words can express.  God Bless You.

Donations will be gratefully accepted for Our Lady of Guadalupe Building Fund or The Hospice Village.  Visitation Tuesday November 29, 2016 from 2-5pm and 7-9pm.  Parish prayers Tuesday 8pm followed by the Rosary at Families First 1065 Lauzon Rd. East Windsor (519-969-5841) On Wednesday November 30, 2016, Friends are invited to meet the family at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish (Wyandotte and Raymo Rd.) for Mass of the Resurrection at 11:00 AM at with burial immediately following at Heavenly Rest Cemetery.   Share memories, photos or make a donation at www.FamiliesFirst.ca
