The growing up years were happy days. Roger had a love of horses and showed them for years at local fairs. Roger went to school at Zepher, Bruxelles and Baldur. Entertainment was shows, dancing and visiting. After high school, Roger taught one year at Hazelwood SD north of Deleau, MB. He then started farming with his father and brothers until he went on his own. On October 4, 1952, he married Angele Baete of Holland, Mb. They moved to 11-4-13E ½ and did mixed farming for many years. Roger and Angele bought E ½ 11-4-13 from Albert Lebeau, NW36-3-13 from Arthur Lindsay Estate (1962) and SE1-4-13 from Ralph Ballentine (1990). Roger and Angele had a family of 5.
