Obituary

ROUGIER, Michael Loving husband, father & grandfather passed away peacefully on January 5, 2012 at the age of 86. Born in England, Michael's family was evacuated to relatives in Vancouver and then moved to Victoria where he attended Qualicum Beach Boys' School and continued on to Victoria College at Craigdarrock Castle. He was hired by the Montreal Standard newspaper and soon after by Life Magazine where he led an exciting and adventurous career as a staff photographer for 24 years. Michael had many interests and artistic talents along with a great sense of humour & fun. He was never happier than being with his family at one of the many horse events or in his workshop creating his beautiful woodwork and metal sculptures. He loved being outdoors gardening, birdwatching and taking the dogs for a walk. Later in life, he took up weaving and rediscovered his love for photography. He will be greatly missed by his wife Marilyn and daughters, Karen (Chris), Nina (Bill), grandchildren Will and Lauren and his brother Jeremy and family in England. A tea will be held in his honour at the Fireside Grill at 4509 West Saanich Rd. Saturday, January 14, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. 646282
