Obituary

ROGERSON, David George “Beaver” of RR1 Fergus.
On the evening of Friday May 24, 2019 the world lost the most incredible man and the pillar of our family.
Dave, better known to others as Beaver, was working on the farm he loved preparing for spring seeding. With his tractor running beside him, his ¬herd of cattle at the gate and his wife Patti at his side he was called home to his Maker. Born in Fergus and raised in Alma, he was a country boy through and through. His world revolved around his loving family, friends, community and love of agriculture. Dave’s accomplishments were many. He was owner of Dave Rogerson Transport Ltd., Past President of the Wellington County Plowmen’s Association, member and Leader of 4-H, Junior Farmers and Alma Young Peoples to name a few. As a young boy in Alma Public School he drew a picture of what he wanted his life to look like. That picture contained a loving family, farm, trucks and livestock. He achieved that and so much more. Dave was a fun guy and a man of many talents. His love of teaching and playing with his children and grandchildren was intertwined during his daily work routine. His caring nature to help others in need came full circle with the unbelievable kindness and support of family, friends and neighbours in our wonderful community.
Dave is survived by his loving wife of 39 years Patti, and their children and spouses Lucas (Leah) Rogerson of Drayton, Meghan (Chad) Woods of Alma, Drew (Holly) Rogerson of Moorefield, Courtney (Darcy) McMorris of Kenilworth. Loved by his 8 (soon to be 9) Grandchildren, Peyton, Riley, Briar and Hunter Woods, Caitlin, Daniel, Hannah and George Rogerson and Baby (Drew & Holly) Rogerson on the way. Predeceased by his Father Robert (November 2018), Mother Jean (March 2010) Dear Brother of Cathy Nesbitt of Guelph, Pauline Halls (Ron) of Guelph, Caroline Attaway (E.B.) of Houston Tx. Dear brother in-law to Carol and Paul Long of Gowanstown, Kathy and Terry (deceased November 2018) Newman of Gowanstown, Donnie and Nancy Yungblut of Port Elgin, Susan and Al Weyers of Atwood. Also remembered by Les Skerritt, Larry Halls and Brad Nesbitt and his many nieces and nephew’s and all who knew him.

To say that Dave Rogerson was the favourite bus driver for many teachers and students is an understatement. Dave was who teachers always requested when we went on a trip, whether it was to Toronto or to Niagara Falls. When we called to book the busses and said we would like to request . . they filled in with Dave’s name. Dave knew the best routes and could get us out of a traffic jam in minutes by taking a series of side streets that even no one in who lived in Toronto probably could have done. He also had the best stories. The very best stories. There was never a moment of silence on Dave’s bus. And if Dave didn’t think that we were telling the kids all they needed to know, he would point out all sorts of things and add to the culture, geography and history of the trip. He was a wonderful, warm person. We all really missed him when he stopped doing the bus runs. There has been no one like him since . . . I was happy to run into Dave and family when our dad’s shared a ward at Groves two summers ago. Please know that we are all thinking of you at CWDHS. Sincerely, Mary Johnston.
