Art Rogers passed away in Campbell River on January 9, 2013 at the age of 82 with his family by his side.
Art was born in Nanaimo and grew up in Courtenay. He later moved to Vancouver and Richmond. In 1990 he and his beloved Del retired to the Potlatch Rd neighbourhood of Cortes Island. During his working life Art was a successful salesman in Vancouver but his Cortes friends will fondly remember him as a jack-of-all trades with a penchant for puttering. He was extremely easy-going and caring, he loved being around people and helping others whenever he could. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
Predeceased by daughter JoAnne, Art is survived by loving wife, Del; children Chris (Carmi), DeeDee, Lorrie (Ken), Crystal (Gord), Bruce (Pat), Leslie and Mitchel (Star); brother Bob (Bev) and many devoted grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the great doctors and nurses of the Campbell River & District Hospital
Cremation to take place in Campbell River with a private memorial to be held at a later date.
