With heavy hearts and sadness, we announce the passing of Roger Mansell Percival January 5th 2015 in Kelowna.

Roger is survived by Linda his loving wife of 52 years, sons Scott (Veronica) of Kelowna and Daniel (Jennifer) of Calgary; his niece Beth Atkinson of Malakwa, BC and grandchildren Alexis, Catherine, Eric, Dean and Hunter. Predeceased by his daughter Susan and sister Vivienne McIntyre (Charles).


Roger was born May 15, 1939 in Saskatoon, SK and grew up in Vancouver BC. While attending UBC for his Commerce degree, he and his childhood friend Len, opened The Cavalier Shoppe, his first venture into the business world. Roger joined Sears in 1963 as a young trainee and spent the next forty years moving up in the Company, living and working in many locations in BC and Alberta. His final position as Store Manager of the Calgary Chinook Centre store allowed him to fulfill his management and leadership skills.

Roger was a long time Rotarian and proud to be Kelowna Capri Rotary Club Rotarian of the year in 2000.

Roger looked forward to going to work in the morning and coming home to his family at night. He lived a good life.
