RAJOTTE, Roger  
RAJOTTE, Roger Guy Mar. 11, 1948 - Jan. 6, 2015 It is with the deepest sadness that we tell you of the passing of Roger, husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend, colleague and teacher. He died on January 6 in Vancouver with Mary-Ann, and his children by his side. He is survived by his wife, Mary- Ann, his daughter, Chantelle, his son, Daniel and his daughter in law, Laura, his stepsons, Mikhail and Matthew, and his grandsons, Ryder and Koa, whom he loved beyond belief. Roger also leaves his three sisters, Elaine, Evelyn, and Joanne and their husbands, Bruce, Rick, and Andrew. Roger possessed an overwhelmingly positive view of the world. He saw potential in and had an interest in everyone he met. He gave you his complete attention and was truly interested in understanding everyone's story. He had an amazing capacity to care deeply about everyone. Roger loved teaching, loved his students and his colleagues. Roger spent thirty years of a thirty three year teaching career at Highland Secondary School in Comox where he inspired generations of students in his History classes with his "stories". It was impossible to go into Courtenay or Comox without meeting a former student - who always rushed up with a huge hug for "Mr. Rajotte", even if their last encounter had been a grade 8 French class at Robb Road in 1978. In retirement he continued to work with students, this time in the role of Faculty Advisor at Vancouver Island University, supporting student teachers. It was a perfect job for him - sharing his passion and vision of teaching with aspiring teachers. Our journey in the last few years has taken us from biopsies to stem cell transplants, from chemotherapy to the ICU. We moved into a world that we knew nothing about, and then it became our world. And every step of that journey while grounded in the present was focused on the future. In the end Roger succumbed to complications from the stem cell transplant. His unfailing positive attitude prevailed throughout. He died as he lived, full of that loving energy that he so willingly shared with all of us. Thank you to the amazing medical staff from T15 and CP6 at Vancouver General Hospital where we spent the last five months. Your professionalism, compassion and friendship are so appreciated. To our special T15 angels Kate, Carla and Joan you became part of our family and to Gagan, our doctor for our three plus months at BMT Day Care your friendship and genuine caring gave us strength. We also express deep thanks to the doctors and nurses in the ICU at Vancouver General. To honour Roger 's life a private service will be held for family and close friends. This will be followed by a Celebration of Roger's life which will be held at Highland Secondary School on Sunday, February 8 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Please come and share your stories about the greatest storyteller. He will love to hear them. In Lieu of Flowers donations can be made to the Friends of Strathcona Park or to a charity of your choice.

Webb, Patricia E.  
September 16, 1921 - January 20, 2014 Patricia (Pat) Webb, daughter of Audrey and Warwick Woodward, leaves behind her loving husband Anthony (Tony) Webb and their two children, Jeremy and Anne, and their spouses, Carolyn (Horton) and Johan (Jacobs), along with four grandchildren, Gerome and Olin Webb, and Erik and Anton Jacobs-Webb. She also leaves behind her two younger sisters, Pam Roome and Pauline Blanchard-Sims, and six nieces and nephews: Wendy and Anthony, and Diana, Barbara, Jenny and Christopher, along with loving friends of all ages. Born in Vancouver, Mum grew up in Penticton and went on to live in Victoria, London (UK), Australia, Majorca (Spain), followed by first dairy and then llama farm living with Tony in Cobble Hill and Maple Bay and most recently residing in Cowichan Bay. She enjoyed being immersed in the art, literature and everyday life of those near and far and regularly travelled to stay with family and friends in different parts of Canada, Europe and Africa. Mum's positive outlook and openness to adventure, along with a sense of humour that she maintained even through difficult times, have touched us deeply and influenced and inspired who we are and how we live. She was one who shared what she thought with great clarity and expressiveness; she was naturally and spontaneously eloquent and articulate. She leaves us with lifetimes of wonderful experiences, memories and friendships; we have learned and continue to learn much about life from a strong sense of connection with and love for a women with unwavering integrity, insight and sense of the ridiculous. You have lovingly nurtured and enriched each of our lives, and your memory will continue to help us grow and navigate our futures. You are deeply loved and will be deeply missed. Family and friends will gather in the Spring at the family's favourite time of day where Mum and Dad spent many hours relaxing and enjoying the beauty of both being together and of their surroundings.
