Roger Lynn Stoddard

Passed on: February 9th, 2018

We are sad to announce the tragic passing of Roger Lynn Stoddard on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018 at 64 years of age.
On Tuesday evening, the Fisherman’s Provider II ran aground just off the coast of Canso. Roger made the decision to stay aboard the ship when his crew departed and he was reported missing shortly after. Roger spent his entire life working and fishing on the sea and he was truly happiest out on the water. The sea was in his blood.
Roger is survived and will be missed by his family, children, Douglas, Sandie, Cody, Joni and stepson, Kenneth; grandchildren, Kaylen, Brendan, Justin, Catlyn, Kenzie, Caileigh, Courtney and Jessica, great-grandchildren, Charlee and Ryder; as well as his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and his friends and family in the fishing community.
Roger was predeceased by his daughter, Joline; mother, Sheila (Brannen); father, Herbert Newell, and stepfather, Gerald Stoddard.
Our sincerest gratitude goes out to the fishers in Canso and the community as a whole, for their efforts and to the Canadian Coast Guard and members of the Joint Task Force Atlantic who responded to the distress signal and provided support.
A visitation will be held on Saturday, February 17 from 12 – 2 with a funeral starting at 2 p.m. all from TW Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney. Interment to follow in Resurrection Cemetery.
