Born Dec 11, 1955 he was a son to the late William and Bessie (Mullen) Rogers of Yarmouth. His earlier working career for Marine Atlantic on the MV Bluenose & most recent with Atlantic Catch Data as a Dockside Monitor fulfilled his love for salt air and the outdoors. Fizzy handing down his mechanic skills lead to his operating Starrs Road Esso as well. Always proud of his childrens' accomplishments his children & animals brought him some of the best moments in his life. Happily, forced to be a farmer once Sean returned from Alberta, he much preferred automobile repairs, hunting, gardening, sandy beaches, rocky shores and Shortbeach sunsets.

Sean, Kelly & Amanda, I am saddened to hear of the loss of your father. I didn't know him but I have known you all and your mom for many years after you moved to the Valley from Yarmouth. It is always very difficult to lose a parent. As you go through the Celebration of Life this weekend for your Dad, remember he is at peace and will always live on in your hearts. May he RIP and may all your hearts get a little less heavy as the days go on, knowing he is at peace. Kathie Brown

My heartfelt condolences to the family. I worked with Roy at ACD and did my on-the-job training with him ten years ago. He was always cheerful, friendly. and willing to teach a "newbie". I saw him at Dennis Point wharf whenever we had boats to monitor... Roy was always good to chat with and he was always willing to take my paperwork to the office for me. I, as well as many others at the wharf, will miss him dearly! Rest in Peace, Roy!
