Roger Taylor

Roger Taylor

“He bade no one a last farewell,

He said goodbye to none;

The heavenly gates were opened wide,

A loving voice said, ‘Come’.”

Roger Taylor passed away in his home on September 19, 2014 at the age of 56. He was born in Vancouver, BC on February 7, 1958. Previously from Calgary AB, he moved to Sicamous and has resided there for the past several years.

Roger was predeceased by his father and brother. He will be sadly missed by his family in Calgary; his mother Cherry Taylor, daughter Alicia (James Palmer), and son Jeffrey. Also his family in Sicamous; his loving partner Lily and her children Kira (Bob Gulliford), Adam, and 3 grandchildren, Ava, Bella and Mia.

He will always be remembered for his love of being a Volunteer firefighter, boating, his love of conversation, no matter the subject, and helping anyone that needed his help.

A special thank you to the Sicamous Fire Department, Chief Brett Ogino and Dale Wood (Lyn Wood), for your support and caring and to dear friends and family, for their compassion and words of solace.

A service will be held in Sicamous at a later date so Roger’s family in Calgary will be able to attend.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Roger can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
