He was born May 13, 1927. Roman was the oldest of five children born to Frank and Annie Antypowich in Ibstone, Saskatchewan. The family moved to Widewater and then to High Prairie, Alberta, where they operated the sawmill that is now Buchanan Lumber.

During the first 30 years of the 50 year span, he also operated Northwood Contractors Ltd., an oilfield construction company, with his brother Ervin.

He spent his retirement gardening, collecting belt buckles, coins and bolo ties, and enjoying his love of music, along with spending as much time as anyone possibly could with family and their many friends.
