It is with great sadness that the family of Roger Conrad Belzac, announces his peaceful passing on Monday September 22, 2014 at the age of 75 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Roger was born on August 10th, 1939 at the Cranbrook St. Eugene Hospital to parents Louis and Helen. He married the love of his life and high school sweetheart Ann in 1963 and together they shared the next fifty one years.
He is survived by his wife Ann, children Debbie (Mike), Rick, Lynn (Shane), Brian (Deb); grandchildren Chris, Stephanie, Lindsey, Madison, Owen, Conrad, Megan, Allison, Jordan, Stephen, Hailey, Kristian, and Brok; brothers Larry (Susan), Reg (Denyse).
Roger was a devoted husband, a dedicated father and was truly an inspiration to those who knew him. He was a man of few words, endless wisdom, and was always quick to lend a hand. He led a full life while enjoying the time with his family and friends, his cabin at the lake, and being an avid outdoorsman. He was a ‘Jack of all trades’, mastering them all while raising his family in the home he built. Roger retired in 1996 after dedicating 38 years to BC Tel.
At Roger’s request, there will be no funeral service. A Celebration of Life gathering for friends and family will take place from 2pm-4pm on Saturday, September 27th, 2014. Please join us at the Manual Training Room attached to the Cranbrook Public Library, 1212 2nd St. South (across from the old Central School)
