Roger was born in Leamington to Glenn (1965) and Doris (Scott) Bradt (1980). Survived by siblings Florence, Richard (Joan), Robert (Sylvia), David, Lorne (LeeAnn), and Becky (Dave). Brother in law to Vivian and Glen Collard and Pat and Roy Churchill locally, and Judy Pfaff, Cathy (Bill) Stone, Michael (Sharen) Churchill and Patrick (Lisa) Churchill in Michigan.
