Roger Caron was a complicated man.
Born in “a city with a world of possibilities”
Caron put Cornwall on the map with his legendary bank heists
and at least a dozen successful jail breaks —
possibly the most in Canadian history.
He went on to write Go-boy! Memoirs of a life behind bars
which won the prestigious Governor General’s Award in 1977
and inspired Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to call him a “great Canadian.”
Roger Caron also had Parkinson’s disease.
The Memorial Service takes place
Saturday, April 26, 2012
at Lahaie and Sullivan Funeral Home.
