Roger was born on May 12, 1946, in Willowbunch, SK. He attended school at Ponteix School. Roger was married to Sharon Kos August 22, 1970 at St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church in Rama, SK. He worked for Simpson-Sears in Edmonton, then moved to Vancouver and was employed moving furniture with his brother Claude. He then began his career in roadbuilding with the RM of Whiska Creek. He and his brother Gilbert formed G&R Vallee Earthmoving which became Vallee Earthmoving. He was a member of the Ponteix Stock Car Club, Knights of Columbus, Ponteix Town Council, and Mayor of Ponteix. Roger loved cars and owned many classics. He also loved having heated discussions about the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Toronto Blue Jays. He spent time working on projects both at his shop in Ponteix and at his family cabin at Lac Pelletier. Roger will be missed by all who loved him. His larger than life personality paired with his sense of humour, radiant smile, and hard-working attitude made him truly one-of-a kind. Through his many health problems over the last years he persevered with his strong determination and the support of his family and friends. Roger was so thrilled to meet the newest addition to his family, his granddaughter Maisie, born June 29, just before he passed. Roger worked hard, played hard, laughed hard, and fought hard to the very end. We love you Dad. Rest easy.
