ROGER RONALD BAEKELAND November 16, 1937 - June 8, 2015 Suddenly, and with his best friend and loving wife of 57 years at his side, Roger Baekeland passed away on June 8 in Winnipeg at St. Boniface General Hospital. Born and raised in St. Boniface, Manitoba, Roger graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1958 with a degree in geological engineering. He was employed by Imperial Oil, Texaco, Forest Oil and Trend Exploration. In 1975 he founded his own company, Jaya Resources in Calgary, from which he has just recently retired. He proudly served as a second- lieutenant in the Canadian Army Reserve, Loyal Edmonton Regiment ( PPCLI) from 1960 to 1965. He was at his happiest being a long- term member of the Chaine des Rotisseurs ( Calgary Bailliage).

He was then appointed Echanson for Canada and opened the first Order Mondial in Canada, in Calgary. He also held memberships in the Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club, the Glencoe Club and the Petroleum Club. These all fed his favourite hobbies: food, wine, travel and golf. His intellect, mischievous nature and magnetic personality were only surpassed by his generosity and genuine love of family and friends. He was truly one of a kind. Roger is survived by his wife Lee ( nee Janssens); three sons Allen ( Jennifer), Steven ( Holly), and Gregg; sister Rena ( Jim) Parker; grandchildren Page, Kamaren, and Silas; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and in- laws.
