October 3, 1937 - September 12, 2020
Roger Victor Joseph Drolet passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his beloved wife of almost 54 years, Anne, his two daughters, April Drolet-Todd and Tracy Drolet, his grandson Brandon Drolet (Christina) and great-grandson Tristan. Roger was born in Waterbury, CT, the 10th of 12 children. He joined the Air Force as soon as he could, and was a French interpreter when stationed in North Africa, and Air Police in Texas. When he returned home, he became a toolmaker, but after taking a few classes, became a ballroom dancer and teacher, co-owning a dance studio and dancing all over Connecticut and New York. After getting married, he became a police officer before retiring due to injuries sustained on the job. He and Anne moved the family to Florida, where he soon learned his next trade in home/commercial security systems before starting their own business, not once but twice. After selling the business, he worked as Chief of Security at Jupiter Hills for 10 years. Everyone who met him knew him to be a man of honor and integrity, quick to offer a smile and kind word, and always with a twinkle in his eye. Services to be held at a later date.

Mr Drolet will be missed! Every Saturday morning, he would come food shopping, and we had out “catching up” talks. He was very proud of his family and spoke very highly of them. RIP Roger... til we meet again.. we will catch up then!

My deepest condolences to the family. A friend of mine shared this African proverb, “He whom you have loved and lost is no longer with you; he is now everywhere that you are”. Memories of your husband/father will always be close to your heart, you will laugh at times and cry at times, but know he is right by your side. Blessings.
