Henry Roger JOWETT
Born Melbourne, Australia, on July 2, 1926. Died 10: 15 a.m., May 25, 2003. It is with great sadness that his family announces his passing. Educated at Shaftesbury Grammar School in London, England, Roger served as an officer with the British Army from 1945 to 1947, until being transferred to British Intelligence. After living in Egypt, Sweden, Hong Kong and Singapore, he moved to Canada and joined the Canadian Army where he was stationed at Camp Borden from 1954 to 1957, and was promoted Captain Staff Quarter Master. In 1969, Roger became a professor of Photography and later the Chair of Visual Arts at Sheridan College, Oakville, until retiring in 1991. A proud and devoted father, brilliant photographer, and wonderfully eccentric man. Roger was an avid sailor and sportsman who was still winning on the tennis court at the age of 73. He will be missed by many of his close Friends and colleagues, and forever by his beloved children Nicola, Alexander and Andrew and his sisters Diana and Cynthia. Roger was predeceased by his brother Anthony. With the help of family and Friends he was able to spend his last days at home in comfort. Nicola, Alexander and Andrew would like to express sincere thanks to Dr. Karen PAPE, Brian MAGEE Sr., Steve JOHNSON, Bill COSTIGANE, Sandy and John DUNN, Dr. Matthew DISTEFANO, Gillian, Sylvie and Kate HAND and to his caregiver Eric NOFTLE. In keeping with Roger's spirit a 'Pimm's Party' will be held to celebrate his life at The Oakville Club, 56 Water Street, on July 2nd from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to a memorial charitable trust established in his memory to assist palliative care patients in their wishes to die at home in dignity. Donations can be sent to 'The Roger Jowett Charitable Trust', 45-1534 Lancaster Drive, Oakville, On L6H 2Z3. The trust is currently applying for registered status with the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency.
