On the morning of Sunday, February 8, 2015 Roger Leslie Duns passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook, BC at the age of 66 years. He was born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan on May 8, 1948 to Jack and Mildred Duns, the youngest of five children.
Roger attended Alva School for eight years. He was very proud to say he worked for Continental roofing business for 20 plus years. He retired in June of 2008 and moved to Kitchener, BC where he built a retirement home for himself and wife, Theresa. His hobbies were fishing, camping, quadding, sledding, bird watching, gardening and walking his dog. He truly loved using his hands to build his home. He enjoyed sitting on his deck with his friends and family enjoying a beer or two. His most favorite time of all was when his grandchildren came to visit.
Roger leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Theresa; his children, Daylen (Christina), Allen (Jacqueline) and Crystal (Mike) as well as his beloved grandchildren; Kassie, Tyler, Fynnley, Sabrina, Tyrell, Ukiah, Seija, Jayden, Makayla, Brooklyn and Jaxson. Also left behind are his step daughter; Melisa (Nick) and their son Jackson and stepson Terry. Roger is survived by three of his siblings; Doug (Rose), Jean (Ken) and Mary (Arnold) as well as several nieces and nephews and his very loving in-laws.
