In memory of

Roger Paul Ortiz

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Roger Ortiz on July 17, 2023 at the age of 65.

Roger passed away peacefully at home. He was the son of the late Henry and Betty Ortiz and devoted husband to his late wife Edna. He is survived by brothers Ron (Kim), Glen (Sharon), and Christian as well as his nephew Jeffrey and niece Krystal. His four step children: Kim (Mike), Andy, Angela (Todd) and Diane (Brian) as well as his sister in-law Shirley Whitehouse.

He will be greatly missed by his 9 grandchildren, Natasha (Richard), Erica, Kassandra (Michael), Adam, Kristen, Wyatt, Katie, Tyler and Jackson and by his 6 great grandchildren, Camden, Jacob, Jaxon, Jazlyn, Xennen and Giuliano. He will especially be missed by his beloved dog Murphy.

Roger was a member of the Toronto Air Cadets and a recent retiree from the TTC. He lived a life filled with family and laughter. He will be remembered for the many stories he loved to share and his bad dad jokes.

Funeral service takes place at 2:00 pm at Pine Hills Cemetery and Funeral Centre, 625 Birchmount Road, Toronto on Sunday July 23, 2023 . Visitation commences at 1:00 pm. A reception will follow.

They say there is a special bond between twin brothers which I feel every day.
From our love of M & M's to hockey(although we strongly disagree on our favourite team).
Kim and I know you will be forever in our hearts.
Love Forever Ron & Kim
