    We regret to advise of the death of Master Warrant Officer Rolland Gregory "Rollie" Dussault, CD (Ret'd) on 4 June 2017 at the age of 71 in Ottawa, ON.

    Rollie was born in Kingston, ON in 1946. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Engineers as a Field Engineer in 1965 and the next year he was taken on strength of Army Survey Establishment in Ottawa. For the next twenty years he was involved in diverse jobs and had more than his share of odd adventures. He began the initial Trade Selection Course in January 1967 and qualified as a Group 1 Topographic Surveyor ( Level 4) three months later. Two years later Rollie was promoted to Corporal.  In 1974 he was detached to the Department of Energy Mines and Resources for the first Arctic Doppler survey and was promoted to Sergeant in June 1975. He worked in the various sections of the unit until he was promoted to Warrant Officer in June 1982.

    Rollie became interested in the computer end of the business after years of field survey, compilation and such mundane chores and he worked in this new area for a few years. Having attended University of New Brunswick in 1984 he believed that he could do better as a civilian. Accordingly, he took his release in January 1986 at the rank of Waster Warrant Officer and became a CS2 Programmer Analyst with Mapping and Charting Establishment. Five years later he took a position with the computer division of Energy Mines and Resources’ from which he retired in 2002.

    Friends and family are invited to visit at the Kemptville Chapel of  Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 805 Prescott Street, Kemptville, on Monday 12 June 2017 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Tuesday at 11 a.m. followed by a reception.
