Looking for family of Walter Howard ROGERS, born 1918 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, killed on December 20, 1944 in the Province of Ravenna, Italy, and buried in Villanova Canadian War Cemetery, age 26.

Walter Rogers was the son of James Arthur Rogers (1877-1952) and Eva May Becker, of Winnipeg, Manitoba and husband of Doris Mary Rogers, of Winnipeg.

Hoping to learn news of his survivors, I have searched the Winnipeg newspapers for his obit. I did eventually find him listed in the official army casualty lists, on January 23, 1945, one month after the fact. I never did find an obit. His widow Doris continued to be listed in the Winnipeg City Directories until 1957.

His wife and any children are lost to us.
