Chilliwack businessman Stan Rogers dies suddenly

Prominent Chilliwack businessman and former federal Liberal Party riding president Stan Rogers has died.

Rogers passed away suddenly on Wednesday, apparently of a heart attack, according to family members.

"This was unexpected and comes as a shock to us all," son Collin said on Facebook.

Rogers was president of the Legacy Pacific Group of Companies, primarily known for its large industrial park in Chilliwack home to one of Canada's largest food processing facilities.

Rogers also served as the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding president for the federal Liberals.

No plans for a service have yet been arranged.
