UHRYNOWICH, Roger (Chachi) – passed away on March 1, 2014 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Roger was born on April 13, 1942 in Trail, BC.

Roger served in the Armed Forces and was stationed in Germany and enjoyed travelling throughout Europe. Upon returning from Germany, he met his wife Linnette and they started their family. The rest is history. Roger worked at Cominco for 32 years and became a Millwright before enjoying his retirement.
