November 17, 1937 – January 7, 2017
It is with great sorrow that the Waters family announces the sudden passing of Roy Waters on January 7th, 2017 at the age of 79.

Roy was born in Salmon Arm on November 17, 1937 and remained there until his marriage. He was dedicated to his family and took pride in maintaining relationships with his relatives and friends throughout the years. He loved travelling with Inge in their motorhome to the Bluegrass music festivals around Western Canada, enjoyed meeting friends and attending dances at the Army & Navy as well as the Legions. He especially looked forward to camping trips with his grandchildren and loved spending summers around the Shuswap and Okanagan Lakes. After a lifetime career with CP Rail in Revelstoke and Kamloops, Roy enjoyed a long retirement when he left the job at age 57.
