Roger Howard (SPC 1954-63)

February 16, 2021

We extend our sincere condolences to wife Mary and family on the sad passing of Old Collegian Roger Howard (SPC 1954-63) on August 12, 2020.

Roger Howard (SPC 1954-63), pictured second from left with his wife Mary, visited SPC back in 2018 in “a trip down memory lane”. Roger walked the school halls and grounds, reminiscing with fellow Old Boys Peter Nuttall (SPC 1957-63), Jock Lardner (SPC 1955-59) and Michael Kearney (SPC 1962-67) and former Ballarat High footy rival Gary Tolliday.

Roger visited the College back in December 2018 with his wife Mary and enjoyed the opportunity to walk around the school grounds once again.
