It is with great sadness that the family of Roger Louis Chenard (74), son of the late Gerard and Rosaline Chenard, passed away suddenly in the hospital on the 21st of November surrounded by his loving family. He was born in 1947 in Tracadie, NB.
He attended Université de Moncton for a degree in Business Administration and then moved to Quebec City to receive his Masters at Université Laval. He returned to Moncton in 1971 to teach at U de M for the next 27 years. He was Vice-Dean for 5 years and Department Head of the Faculty of Administration for 3 years.
He met his wife Debbie in 1974 and they were married the following year. They made their home in Moncton.
Roger will forever live on in the hearts of Debbie (his wife of 46 years), their three children Monique (Andy), Laura (Kenny), David (Jenny), and their precious granddaughters Emma and Olivia. He leaves behind his brothers Marcel (Jeanette), Bernie (Denise), sister Giselle (Vernon), and sisters-in-law Lucille (Jean-Paul), Bernadette Chenard, Eileen LeBlanc, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers Jean-Claude, Conrad, and Vincent.
Roger was a very quiet man who loved his family so much. He enjoyed cooking for them at many family gatherings held at his home. He loved going to P.E.I to drive potato trucks alongside the digger with his in-laws and visiting the family cottage on the island where he appreciated the peacefulness. He was a proud member of the Mazda Miata Club and took his wife Debbie on many long drives. On any given day you could find Roger feeding his birds in the yard, reading, or doing his daily crossword puzzles with a Tim`s coffee in hand. In the evenings maybe gazing through his telescope, as he was a space enthusiast.
