It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Roger Gray. Roger was predeceased by both his parents, Fred and Gail Gray.

Roger leaves behind to cherish his memory his life partner and best friend of over 18 years, Debbie Henzel; his two sons, Russell and Ryan (Eva); his brothers, Wendall (Beryl); Mark (Emma); and sister, Brenda; nieces, Emily and Taylor; nephews, Derrick and Will, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous friends.

Roger was born and raised mostly within the Selkirk area, with the exception of a short move to Gillam. After graduating from high school, Roger started to work as a semi truck driver. He was employed hauling long distances with Kleysen Transport, Safety Kleen, and finally with CP Rail. It was through his driving experiences that Roger had the opportunity to meet and interact with various people, which ultimately led to many invaluable friendships.

With his outgoing personality and witty sense of humour, Roger made numerous friends in various circles, from his hockey league to his friends on the golf course.

As a warm, generous person, Roger would often donate money or volunteer his time to different organizations such as the War Amps or Siloam Mission. He would always find a way to lend a helping hand to those who needed assistance, whether it be his sister or to those less fortunate.

During his time off, Roger had many interests. He enjoyed cruising on his motorcycle with his brother, Wendall, golfing, watching the Sports or CNN channel, walking in the park, or just spending time with his partner.

Roger, you were dearly loved and will be missed by all.

The families of Roger Gray would like to extend their appreciation to CP Rail for all of their support and guidance during this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of your passing. I have such a great memory of our final time together which was representative of the gentleman you were. Of course it was on the golf course and I think Mr. Nagy, Mr. Compton and possibly Ozzy were there as well and my wife was driving my cart for me. Of course you were kind and thoughtful to us and helped us with our respective golf grips. You will be missed and I wish there was more time to spend with you. We are all hurt with a hole in our lives and I am sure your family most of all. You were a man with a big heart and a kind manner who will be dearly missed by all.

Randy and Anel
