It is with sadness we regret to announce that Roy Elgin Matheson passed away June 3, 2014 at home, surrounded by his family. He was born in Cabri, Saskatchewan on April 5, 1931. As a child, he moved to Barrhead, AB and later became a police officer in the City of Calgary for eleven years. He left the force in 1964 to start the life of a Rancher near Breton, AB.
