Roger Wainwright

June 17, 1934 — January 24, 2024


Wainwright, Roger

June 17, 1934 to January 24, 2024

 

Passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Queensway Carleton Hospital on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, in his 89th  year. Beloved husband of Ethel. Dear father of Susan, Tim, Ann and Brenda.  Loving grandfather of Riley, Jake, Dylan, Scott, and Grant.

 

Roger led an active and involved life, starting with years in the Boy Scouts and as a cadet with the Royal Military College.  His appreciation for service to the community and the role of the military stayed with him throughout his life.

 

He had a rewarding and successful career in the emerging technology sector, starting with early jobs with Hewlett Packard and Computing Devices.  He owned his own technology company for several years, and later transitioned to successful positions in the Canadian Government.  He worked as a Director of Trade to South America for several years, and ended his career directing the technology implementation at the Museum of Civilization in Hull.

 

Roger loved to visit new places and covered much of the globe in his travels with work and with his wife, Ethel.  He continued these adventures in retirement, and remained active on condo boards, volunteer activities, golfing, swimming, skiing, playing bridge and eventually participating to the fullest in the retirement home where he and Ethel resided for his last years.
