Stan Rogers celebration of life set for Friday
A celebration of life has been planned for prominent Chilliwack businessman Stan Rogers who died suddenly last week.
Rogers, who was a Rotarian, a former Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce director, and former federal Liberal Party riding president, died of a heart attack on April 16.
Rogers, who was born in 1948, 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.
“The messages we have been receiving celebrating Stan’s life and sharing appreciation and memories of how he touched people have been greatly appreciated and will be preserved and shared with Stan’s six young grandchildren,” Stan’s son Collin said. “In lieu of flowers, we invite you to make a donation to the Rotary Foundation in Stan’s memory.”
The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce issued a statement, expressing sadness at the sudden passing of Rogers.
“Stan contributed to Chilliwack in many ways, both professionally and privately and he will be greatly missed in our community. The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce would like to offer its condolences to the family at this time of loss.”
• A Celebration of Life is scheduled for April 25 at 2 p.m. at Evergreen Hall, 9291 Corbould St. A reception is to follow at 4 p.m. at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn, 43971 Industrial Way.
