Roger Carroll Robart
Roger Carroll Robart, 80, went to be with his Heavenly Father, August 4, 2018. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family at the Moncton City Hospital. Born in Sable River, NS, he was the son of the late Chuck and Edith (Wolfe) Robart and step mother Grace (Clarke) Robart.
Roger will be sadly missed by his devoted wife of 56 years Joyce (Myles), incredible children Vickie (Rob) of Moncton, Greg (Nat) of Rothesay, Mike (Beverley) of Moncton, and Stephen (Carrie) of Stillwater Lake, and 10 "awesome" grandchildren Jessica (Corey), Sarah (Stephen), Erin, Tess, Drew, Alex, Josh, Kate, Aiden, and Bradleigh. Roger will also be sadly missed by his siblings, Keith (Florence), Ferne, Peggy (Hugh), Maynard (Ellen), Patsy (Kevin), Gwennie, Chrissy (Allan) and many nieces, and nephews.
Roger was a graduate of Moncton High School, Class of 1957. He worked faithfully in the engineering department at CN for 32 years. When he wasn’t at work, you could find him in his garden, painting, making stained glass, on the golf course or in front of the TV watching his Leafs or Blue Jays. His greatest joy was supporting his grandkids in all of their activities. He was very active at First Baptist Church as a Deacon, Deacon Emeritus, Sunday School teacher, Cub/Scout leader and prayer warrior. He was also a founding member of the First Baptist full contact recreational "men’s" basketball league! He was inducted into the Moncton Sports Wall of Fame in 2013 with the CYHi/CYO Junior Basketball Team (1957-1959). During that period, one of his claims to fame was playing against the Harlem Globe Trotters when they came to town.
The immediate family wish to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all staff members for the excellent care that Roger received during his stay on the Cardiac Care and Palliative Care Units.
