ForeverMissed
Rogelio “Roger” Barrera Fernandez, 65, died suddenly on April 18th, 2021. Roger’s loss was completely unexpected and his family and friends are shocked and deeply saddened. Although Roger left us here, He is now reunited with God. Heaven gained an angel who is now watching and protecting us from above.

Roger was born on March 12th, 1956 to Rodolfo and Natividad Fernandez in Cavite, Philippines. He is the brother of Elenita, Roberto, Robinson, Rommel, Ronnie and Rosalyn.

Roger went to school and finished his studies in the Philippines. He later worked overseas as an Electrician. When he went back home, he worked as a Jeweler at T.R. Santi and Sons specializes in emblem jewelry. In 2001, he moved to Toronto, Canada and worked at Toro Aluminum for the last 19 years.

Roger leaves to cherish his life and memories: Naty Fernandez, his devoted and beloved Mother. Araceli Fernandez, his loving wife who he shared 39 wonderful years with. Rochelle, Ronna and Roseanne: his caring and affectionate daughters. Rosh, Rover, Roman, Reyna and McLaren: his sweet and delightful grandchildren. He also leaves his family, friends, colleagues in the Philippines, U.S. A., Canada and everywhere else.

Roger is described by family and friends as honest, hardworking, kind-hearted and thoughtful. He was full of life, positive and had a great sense of humor. Whoever you are, he willingly helps anyone in need: family, friends and even strangers. He enjoyed the simple things in life; he loved cooking and listening to his favorite music. He had an infectious laugh that uplifts your spirit. His positivity and jokes would change your mood even on your worst days. He was someone you can rely on anytime. He puts everyone else before him to make sure you are okay – no questions asked. He was a responsible son and brother, a loving husband, a caring father and grandfather. He was a great father not only to his daughters but wonderful father-figure to nieces, nephews, godchildren and to whoever met him. There are not enough words that can describe what an amazing human being he was. He truly was one of a kind. He touched many lives in so many ways. And for that, he will be forever loved, missed and remembered.

I just want to say thank you for raising three beautiful hardworking ladies. I have become really close to Roseanne and Ronna. I admire how strong and independent they are. They definitely got that from you and Tita. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and the awesome food I got to try. See you later Tito.

Pa,

It's been a month since you left and there's not a day that goes by that I do not think about you. Every where I look, I'm reminded of you. I didn't think how hard it is that you're not with us anymore. Roman talks about you all the time. I miss talking to you and seeing you. I miss you making fun of my cooking lol.

But I know, where ever you are, you are in a better place. You are watching and guiding us. I love you and I miss you so much.

Thank you pa- for always welcoming me in your home (even when I was there sometimes day after day), for making sure I was fed, for inviting me to every family event you had and for always putting a smile on our faces! You used to call me your fourth daughter and best friend. You made everyone feel welcome and safe. 

You will forever be missed
