A Spoke in our Wheel

A main spoke in our family was removed yesterday.

Arnold's dad was recently diagnosed with lung cancer.

Due to some major complications he passed away yesterday.

Roger was more like a tractor than a spoke.

He was never a rusty relic in the field of life and farming

He plowed his way through good and bad times,

 going to greener pastures in something more like this

He will be greatly missed.

Roger Sylvio Marcotte
April 1, 1935 - April 18, 2016

I know he was greeted with open arms by our daughter, Megan 
his son, Larry.

Till our furrows meet again....

and family


  1. Very nice post, Christa. Roger was always so good to us.

  2. May God be with you and your family as you mourn and may your memories bring smiles and courage.

  3. Such a fitting tribute to your father-in-law. Sympathies to you and your family on the loss of Roger, a remarkable community and family man.


Thank you for reading and hope your enjoyed!!
