Elliot Lake Funeral Chapel
& Cremation Centre
Rogers, Thomas William
Born June 11, 1948 in Kirkland Lake, ON, he passed away on September 17, 2018 at the Health Sciences North in Sudbury. Tom was predeceased by his mother Norma, his father Arthur, his brothers Larry, Art & Allan. He leaves behind his loving wife Helen Rogers, his 3 children, Elizabeth, Scott (Amber), Patrick and his 2 granddaughters Sohvi & Alvvy. He is also survived by sisters-in-law, Marge, Monique and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Tom grew up in Elliot Lake and stayed in town to raise his family. Over the years, he held many jobs throughout the City, touching many people. Tom was a tireless volunteer, always looking to better his community and those in need. Tom’s favorite job was raising his children, especially Elizabeth. Tom’s welcoming smile and warm greeting to everyone he came across will be sorely missed.
A memorial visitation will be held at Our Lady of Fatima Church on Friday September 21 from 7-9 pm. A memorial mass celebrating Tom’s life will be celebrated on Saturday September 22, 2018 at 11 am, also from the Church. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to the St. Joseph’s Foundation of Elliot Lake. This project was very close to Tom’s heart.
The family would like to thank the staff at Health Sciences North in Sudbury, Dr. Christine Pun, Dr. Tim DeBortoli & Dr. Jack Long. We’d also like to extend our thanks to the Church and parishioners, and to the community of Elliot Lake.
