It is with great regret that we announce that our past president, Stuart McGiffin Rodgers, passed away on March 18th - at the ripe age of 89.

Stuart was originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland and came to Canada at the age of 24. He joined Leslie & Giles Insurance Limited in 1968, as junior partner to William "Bill" Giles. In 1988, Stuart bought Bill's shares so that Bill could retire. Stuart serviced our clients faithfully for 33 years, until his retirement in 2001.  He will be remembered for his passion for golf and missed by many.

An Irish Wake will be held in his honour on Sunday, April 29, 2018.

The event will be held at the Scarboro Golf and Country Club, a place he spent many happy hours.  Light refreshments will be served, and a toast of scotch will be held at 3:00 p.m. to ensure a glorious send-off for the Irish man.  For details on the event, please visit our Facebook page event.
