Carol and family, I was saddened to see that Roger had passed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Roger was such an important puzzle piece in my life of vacationing & fishing in Canada. Carol you and Roger made the absolute best hosts and added so much fun, playful banter, and down right all out, no holds barred, teasing from both his and my perspective. How I miss those beautiful days of sunrises & sunsets over the lake and watching Roger feed his squirrels! Roger will certainly be missed and again, my thanks Carol for making us always feel at home and loved! Yours always, Sherry Kralovetz-Pucel

On October 2nd, 2021 my friend James Roger Henegar left me after years of working together, how many I do not know but together we helped the company grow. We fished together way up north in rain and snow, how many years I do not know, but we had good times and we had some scared times but together, we got through it. We had good times together. You will always be in my thoughts. Your friend, Jackie Buckland
