Memorable Manitobans: Roger Goethals (1935-2002)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born on 10 March 1935, son of Arthur Goethals and Madeline Andries, his mother died when he was 4. During childhood, he and his father lived in the Grove and Hazeldean districts where he attended Flossie School, Verona School, and Hazeldean School. As a young man, he worked for Bolduc Construction, in the oil fields, and for Northland Coal at Winnipeg. After marriage, he moved to a farm at 33-2-22W where he resided until his death. He served on the Council of the Rural Municipality of Winchester for 13 years, the last four years as Reeve. He died at Deloraine on 17 October 2002.
