    When I was young I used to go spend a couple of weeks at Roger and Helen’s. My Great Grandmother is Eurilla Paugh and My grandmother is Priscilla MacKinnon. I remember so much from those summers with Roger and Helen and my grandmother. I learned to roller blade on those same streets they had lived on for so many years, I also have a lot of pictures of me and my brother playing on the stairs. Roger and Helen were a big part of my childhood and I only wish I had kept in contact after Helen’s passing. I rode by the house a few times awhile back and it brought back a lot of great memories. My deepest condolences to the family. Christine

    As we reflect on our life journey, we look back at the saints who have touched our lives, setting an example, blessing and encouraging us. Roger was one of those people and we rise up to call him blessed. A gentle, diligent, faithful servant, a patient listener and encourager who was a delight to work with. We rejoice as he receives his “Well done thou good and faithful servant”, and pray for the family members who will miss him deeply.

    My deepest sympathy to the family of Roger D. Paugh. My grandmother, Bertha (Paugh) Boyle, was a first cousin of Roger’s father, James. They lived at East Bideford, PEI. I am quite interested in family history, especially this branch of my mother’s line that I have very little information on. God bless you all. e-mail:
