We are devastated to announce that Timothy Charles Joseph Rogers (53), of Edmonton, AB passed away unexpectedly, the morning of October 24th.
He is survived and mourned by: his mother Kathleen (Marilee Bailey) Rogers and father James (Jim) Rogers (Linda); his three sons, Andrew, James and Jordan; his former wife Heather; his siblings Robert (Marina), Laurel, Krista (Doug) and Teri-Anne; his 9 nieces and nephews, Michael, Vicky, David, Christopher, Steven, Joshua, Taylor and Daniel; 1 grand-nephew; step-sisters and cousins. Tim was predeceased by: his grandparents, Janet (Fairbrother) Rogers, Andy Rogers, Henry Bailey and Margaret (Robinson) Bailey; his uncle Rod Bailey; and his aunt Jean (Rogers) Jones (Richard). He was especially treOasured by both his grandfathers.
Tim had a huge heart, which he extended to many who came into his orbit. All were very dear to him and he considered so many as family. He was generous with his heart and would give his last cent to a friend in need. His passion was music, laughter and people. His friends describe him as always kind, respectful and seeking to live life to the fullest. Part of his charm was his ability to uplift those around him, forgetting troubles with the fun and happiness of good company, witty jokes and lots of smiles.
Family knew him as good-hearted, friendly, positive, good in a pinch and in tough times, a good friend and loving Dad. While he had an easy-going manner, less known, underneath he had deep thoughts on many complex subjects and deep concerns for those he loved. His pride and joy above all else were his three sons.
Tim made many friends through his life journey. He attended Salisbury Composite, studied at the U of A and NAIT and worked many years as a directional drilling field technician, working throughout Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan and even Russia.
His culinary skills from his time as a sous chef with the Tin Palace and Maxwell Taylor’s delighted many who were fortunate enough to be treated to a home cooked meal.
Given the circumstances of COVID-19, the family will hold a private memorial, on Friday, November 13 at 2:00 pm by invite only.
