On Thursday, February 21, 2019, Roger Bragg, father of three, and the first-born of four other siblings, passed away peacefully, in his sleep in his home, at the age of 65.
Roger was born on February 21, 1954 in Paris, Ontario. At the age of 15, Roger ran away to join a carnival. He was returned home, but from there found his passion for travel. Roger worked in various jobs, but officially was a farmer. He learned the trade at his family farm. Roger spent a lot of time in different places. He would often go to Mexico and enjoyed riding his motorcycle from Ontario through New Brunswick.
Roger’s first wife, Mandy, is the mother of his first-born, Sacha. Afterwards, he married Louise and had two more children, Laisha and Kyle. In 1991, Roger suffered a head injury and was in a coma for three weeks. He successfully went through rehabilitation, but life changed for Roger. Nonetheless, he maintained the same zest for life until he passed. He moved to New Brunswick in 2002 and was looked after by his brother, Paul.
Roger was preceded in death by his father, Harold. He is survived by his mother, Anne Bragg and his children, as well as by his four siblings, Laurie (60), Alan (58), Paul (56) and Christine (55).
