March 25, 1941 – Sept 20, 2010
It is with our deepest sorrow we announce the passing of Ron with his wife by his side. Ron will be loved through eternity and our memories of him will be forever cherished by his wife Judy, children Michele (Brad), Michael and Anthony (Sheila) grandchildren Morgan, Ashton (Crash) and Amy, truck driver buddy Carl, his favourite niece Lorna, one brother and four sisters.
In the early years Ron worked up North but the call of the road was too strong. He began driving long distance that lasted for 48 years. Ron had an inquiring mind and many interests, he always had a story, joke or a good conversation to share. He loved working on trucks, painting pictures and loved to play his guitar. He was intriqued by gadgets and electronics and always wanted to know how they worked. When he retired at 65 his wife Judy got sick and he was her caregiver for three years. There will be no service by request. Cremation will be private. Ron made friends wherever he went, he treasured his friends and the time he spent with them. Ron will be sadly missed but never forgotten. Who could forget that smile and the twinkle in his eye, he touched the hearts of many.
Many thanks go to Jeff Mayer, Dale and Sandy Cleveland, Gerda Clifford, Chrissie Jenson and my favourite cook Jean.
Many times I’ve needed you
Many times I’ve cried
If my love could have saved you Ron
You never would have died
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For you took a part of me with you
The day God called you home
Always loved and forever remembered.
Your loving wife Judy.
