MARRIED WITH CHILDREN
RETIRED AND LOVING IT
"You kids need anything?"
OLD MAN HAT
Roger is Andre's father, but is also patriarch to all of the Survivors. And not just because it's his beach we play on and his house we stay at. Roger was a Steward in the Armed Forces for nearly three decades, and his training has stayed with him. He aims to please, constantly asking the Survivors if they need anything, and meaning it. If you need something, he's your man, or he knows a guy.
Roger served his country well in the Canadian Armed Forces as a steward, mess manager, and whatever else they asked him to do. He's never killed a man (we think), but he could get you a liquor license at the drop of a hat and plan a party like that. He's been everywhere, man, from Hawaii to Bermuda, from Tromso to Germany and back. Equally at ease at sea or on land, he looks really cool in an Air Force uniform.
His best accomplishment, of course, is Andre. (It's my website, so live with it...) His second-best accomplishment is The Den. Retired, and with much time on his hands, he built the den out of driftwood and dreams. The Survivors were all impressed. As Shawn put it, "Hey Andre, your dad makes Rudy look like a big fat wuss." The Den impressed us almost as much as the pink trim inside the Survivor Manor. He is also an accomplished Accordian player, and is learning how to play the Sitar. His hearty laugh and his gentle smile are an inspiration to all the Survivors. He never ceases to amaze.
Roger is most like the real Survivor, Rudy. But much better.
