Passed away, after a brief illness on Wednesday, March 11, 2015. Beloved husband of 48 years to Irene (nee Afaganis). Loving father of Tanya (Paul Ghazar), Katherine, and Leanne. Proud grandpa to Adelaide and Estelle. Survived by his brothers Don (Dorothy), Frank (Joyce) and Alf (Ann). Predeceased by his parents Frank and Mildred Bogusky (nee Kostelnik). In 1973, at the age of 34, Roy was the youngest appointed Judge to the Ontario Court of Justice. He served 17 years in Dryden, Ontario and 19 years in Newmarket, Ontario until the time of his retirement in 2009. His family always came first. We knew when dad was around, we would be loved, protected, and there would be many laughs. He summed everything up near the end with, "We had a good run, didn\’t we? If I had asked for anything more out of life, I\’d have been greedy". A Celebration of Roy\’s Life will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, 185 Canyon Blvd West, Lethbridge. 403-381-4653. Guests are welcome to gather at 1:00 p.m. for words of Remembrance. A reception will follow at Paradise Canyon until 4pm. Online condolences may be made at
