Obituary for Roger Milton Kindree

Roger M. Kindree died on January 3, 2020, after losing his battle with cancer. He died at home, with his family at his side, exactly according to his wishes. He is survived by his wife Louise, daughter Lisa, son-in-law Mark Parekh, and beloved grandson Brennan; two brothers Jim and John (Lorena); and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Roger taught High School in Etobicoke and Orangeville. In retirement, he greatly enjoyed golfing with friends and family, travelling extensively around the world, and volunteering with the Disaster Management Team of the Red Cross, Theatre Orangeville, and the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival. Roger will be remembered for his daily jokes (some good and some groaners!) and willingness to lend a hand.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Theatre Orangeville or Headwaters Health Care Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

I have been the Kindrees mail lady for 13 years and they are the reason I enjoyed my job. Always had a kind word and conversation whenever I seen them. I also am a subscriber to Orangeville Theatre and seen Roger often there and he always greeted everyone with a smile. He was an amazing, kind man and will be missed. Sending hugs to Louise and family

My husband Wayne Hawthorne(d. July 2019) and I knew Roger through volunteering with Theatre Orangeville and the Blues and Jazz Festival. At the theatre, he was always telling jokes to the ushers and patrons as they came to the show. He always had stories to tell. The three of us traded stories of our travels and gave suggestions for where to go next. Roger was a very nice man. I send my condolences to his family. He will be missed.
Sincerely, Kathryn Thomson

As the Volunteer Coordinator for Theatre Orangeville, I can say that Roger was simply the best. He would volunteer to drive long distances to pick up or deliver sets or set materials. He volunteered in the Opera House frequently and often on a moment’s notice. Roger received the Volunteer of the Year Award in November 2018. He will be sadly missed by us at Theatre Orangeville.

Roger was an amazing member of that early VMCI staff, where I had the privilege of beginning my teaching career so many years.ago. Not easily forgotten. I am so thankful. Requiescat.
