Roger North Obituary

May 20, 1952 - Jan 18, 2023

In loving memory of Roger Edward North who passed away suddenly in Sudbury,

Ontario at the age of 70. Beloved husband of Catherine (St. Pierre). Loved and

adored father of Jeff (predeceased 2022), Jamie (Penny) of Sudbury, Daddy's Girl

Julie Costello (Pat) of Val Caron, Joey of Manitouwadge. Beloved son of the late

Edward and Marion North of Lanark, ON. Proud brother of Randy (Nancy) Of Perth,

Rhonda (late Richard) of Lanark, Victor (Pat) of Perth, Heather (Kevin), of Middleville,

Barb of Lanark. Predeceased by brother Lyle (Carolyn) of Kingston. Loved Brother in

law of Susan (late Richard) of Edmonton, Laurie (Ed) of Drummond Centre and

LeeAnn (Mike) of Smiths Falls. Cherished poppa of Matthew (Melissa), Catherine

(Alex), Brittany (Ryan), Emma (Cameron) Andrew (Leanne) Kylee (Tanner) Alesha

(Noah), Brianna (Connor) and Brendan. Also survived by several nieces and nephews

and 4 great grandchildren. He will also be missed by his "little Drinkin buddy" as he

called her Miley.

Dad began his long mining career in 1974 and loved every single minute of it. He

worked very hard and over the years he became very well respected by his peers as

a miner and later as a supervisor. He was always fair and called it like it was. He tried

to retire once and it lasted all of about three months. He said he could only cut the

grass so many times and decided to return to mining. He was trying to get to a 50

year career underground and almost made it as he got to 49. We know you tried so

hard to get to 50 dad and we wished you could have but we loved you and respected

you no matter what. We will miss you so much and this is not goodbye its until we

meet again.

We will be having a get together here in Sudbury on Jan 28, 2023, from 1pm to 4pm

at Overtime Sports Bar in Val Caron and all are welcome to join the family and

celebrate his life. Internment will take place in May 13, 2023, at Pinehurst Cemetery

in Playfairville Ontario. If you would like to honour dads memory please consider

donating to miners for cancer @www.minersforcancer.ca. So dad could take care of

"the boys" one more time. Cremation services provided by Simple Wishes of the
