Roger Allan Leroux

November 17, 1946 - July 24, 2013

Tribute


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Roger Allen Leroux, loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, Brother, Son and Friend.
Born in Chilliwack, BC November 17th, 1946, moved to Leduc, AB as a toddler then to Devon AB where he started school.  At the age of seven the family moved to Creston. Roger attended both elementary and high school here and was involved in many sports such as baseball, basketball, hockey and boxing.  It was in his teen years that he met and started dating Sigrid Parnell who was 15 at the time.  At the age of 17, Roger attended hairdressing school in Surrey which he enjoyed but after finishing decided not to pursue it as a career.  In 1966 he moved to 100 Mile House to work in the plywood plant.  In 1968 he married Sigrid Parnell and they made their home in 100 Mile House where their daughters Tammy Lynn and Nichole Leigh were both born.
In the year they resided in 100 Mile House, Roger was actively involved in search and rescue and belonged to the Volunteer Fire Department.  The family moved to Meadow Creek in 1976 where Roger and Sigrid bought the Meadow Creek Café. After 2 years they sold the café and continued to live in Copper Creek where Roger worked at Remco Cedar Mill for several years then Meadow Creek Cedar for several years.
In the 37 years of living in the Lardeau Valley, he was actively involved in the events and fundraising of the Lardeau  Valley Community Hall and spent countless hours each year developing Glacier Creek Park which he loved and and enjoyed for many years with his family and friends.  Roger’s passion was hunting and fishing with his grandsons.
Roger was diagnosed with cancer in March 2012 which took him away from us July 24th, 2013.  He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years Sigrid Leroux, Daughters Tammy Berry, Nichole Leroux Bayoff (Dan), Grandchildren Jared and Jesse Berry, Lauren, Tyler, and Tyson Bayoff, Mother Hazel Leroux, Sisters Linda (Grant) Romano, Sandi (Ed) Barton, Barb Hanna.  Roger was predeceased by his Father Ernie Leroux May 2011.
