It is with a heavy heart that the Archers & Bowhunters Association of Manitoba announces the passing of Roger Garrod, a great man and ambassador to the sport of Archery. Roger was a tireless volunteer and archer of many disciplines, during his years of involvement he served on multiple provincial and national committees, was a provincial coach, coach educator, as well judging provincial, national, and international events. More recently, Roger had been an integral part of his local club, the Selkirk Archers & Bowhunters as it increased events and development, as well a driving force behind getting Archery back in the Manitoba Games. Roger will be missed. Our sincere condolences go out to Roger’s family and in particular his wife Helen.
A celebration of Roger’s life will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 12 in the Qualico Family Centre by the duck pond in Assiniboine Park. This information is also posted on the Cropo Funeral Chapel website.
