James Roger Begg is finally at peace after a long struggle with cancer and Parkinson's. Roger is sadly missed by his friends, and by his family including wife Mavis; children Michael (Jennifer) and Katherine (John); grandchildren Alexander, Olivia, and Sofia; brother-in-law Barrie; and nieces Teresa and Jan.
Among the many friends Roger made were hundreds of his colleagues at Eaton's, where he worked devotedly for 32 years at many locations across Canada, concluding with eleven years in Victoria as general manager for Vancouver Island. He enjoyed his retirement years travelling, playing duplicate bridge, and spending time with family and friendsincluding five years as a loving grandfather.
All of his friends and coworkers are welcome to join his family in a memorial service:
Cadboro Bay United Church (2625 Arbutus Rd.), 2:00 p.m., Saturday, 30 November. Reception to follow at Wedgewood Estates (rec centre at 2829 Arbutus Rd.).
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Parkinson's Society or BC Cancer Society.
