Brenda i am so saddened by this news. I remember your family with fondness. You and Roger opened your home and hearts to me and my daughters in a time that we really needed it. You truly made an impact in our lives and we will never forget what a caring man Roger was. Prayers to you and your family.
Rest in Peace dear cousin, Roger

Roger will be greatly missed, but his humour, kindness, gentle spirit and love of Forty Creek will be remembered forever. Our deepest condolences. Prayers and thoughts are with you Brenda and family during this time.
Dear Brenda…I’m so sorry to hear this news. I just saw the notice on FaceBook. I have such fond memories of you and Roger and the kids living down the street for so many years…always with lots of laughter whenever we would pop in to visit. I was so grateful when you opened your home to Alex and Sarah after school when I went back to work. They felt so at home with the two of you and the kids. Love and hugs to all of you at this sad time. Roger will be missed by many. xo
My deepest sympathy to the Savage Family.
