David M. Roe
SAC 1943-1946

David M. Roe, known as “Rosie”, attended St. Andrew's College from 1943 to 1946 and stayed close to his classmates over the years, still carrying on the tradition of mischief they mastered as young men.

He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the early 1950’s. Dave’s fondest memories of this period were when he was with 414 Sabre Squadron stationed in Baden Soellingen, Germany.

He moved to St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1958 to work for Canadian Marconi and spent long periods on the DEW line in Labrador. Dave was with the Signal Hill Tattoo, as well as being employed with Petro-Canada before his retirement. Known for his quick wit, sharp intellect and easy going attitude, Dave loved telling stories about his world adventures.

Dave died April 9, 2005, in Calgary, Alberta. He was predeceased by his wife Geraldine and survived by two sons, David and Ian. At Dave’s request, donations in his memory may be made to the Thomas B. D. Tudball Memorial Fund at St. Andrew’s College.
