OBITUARY

Roger Tabin

March 11, 1943November 2, 2021

Roger Louis Tabin passed away November 2, 2021. His wife, Judith, and parents John and Jane predeceased him. He is survived by his three sons Myles (Debbie) and his children Bree, Erik and Eden; Kent (Valerie) and their children Morgan, Bailey, Sydney and Jordan; Kevin (Lindsay) and their children Calla and Joe; his sisters Elaine, Marcy and Gloria; and brother Ben.

Roger grew up in Invermay, Saskatchewan where he developed lifelong interests in sports, baking, gardening, and farming. His career path took him through southern Saskatchewan, Ontario and finally to Wolseley. A proud resident of Wolseley, Roger instilled in his family a belief in community and service. While in Wolseley, Roger served on many sports committees, as a Town Councilor and proudly led activities for Communities in Bloom.

Roger always put family first supporting his wife’s and boys’ pursuits and interests. Wearing many hats, through the highs and lows, there was never a doubt that Dad was always in their corner. This pride and support carried over to his grandchildren’s interest where Grampa Roger beamed and bragged about any and all, accomplishments – from report cards to pageants, on courts, rinks, and stages.

Roger touched lives by being someone always willing to share a story, a laugh and give more than he received. For those that knew him, he “filled the unforgiving minute, with sixty seconds’ worth of distance run”.

Graveside service will be held in the Wolseley Cemetery, Wolseley, Saskatchewan on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 11:30 a.m. with Lynette Calfas officiating. A reception for family & friends will be held in the Wolseley Town Hall/Opera House following the interment.

So sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. We remember him at the rink cheering on his boys. He always had a story to tell. A kind and gentle man. The light went out for him when he lost Judy. Now they are together again. Please know we are thinking of you all.

Myles, Kent, and Kevin
I was saddened to hear of your Dad's passing. Your Mom and Dad were exceptional people and I will always cherish my memories of good chats and laughter with your Mom and those wonderful 'notes to the teacher' that I received from your Dad.
It has been written that the Memory of a Good Person is a Blessing. We surely will all be Blessed as we Remember your Mom and Dad.

Take care Tabin Boys...As you always will be in my mind's eye.

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Roger. He was a valuable part of our community and will be missed by all who knew him. We shared many a coffee while discussing ideas about the Fleury Bus and being on the Committee. Roger was part of the Wolf Creek Friendship membership and I know that we all enjoyed the buns he baked when he brought them to the potlucks. Every time I bake a saskatoon pie I will think of the times that I picked saskatoons from his bushes at the house. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
