PATTISON, Ron 1947 – 2013. Our dear Husband, Father and Granda (Nano), Ron Pattison passed away on Nov 22nd at 8:45 am with the sun on his cheeks and the Northumbrian pipes playing; surrounded by his loving wife, Christine and daughters, Jayne & Kate. Ron loved sailing, the ocean, the salty sea air, a pint on Friday with his best mates, and of course, music. He was a charismatic soul loved by all. He had such a zest for life and fun times, which is why he had an abundance of love in his life. He fought a courageous and brave battle with Mesothelioma, a deadly and aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. He will be sorely missed by all. The most sincerest of thanks to Dr. Joshi, Maureen and the entire team on the Palliative & Hospice floor of Peace Arch Hospital and Kit of Home Health.

Ron is pre-deceased by his son, Timothy (2008); and leaves behind to mourn, his loving and devoted wife of 45 years, Christine; daughters Jayne (Wes) & Kate (Cam); grandchildren, Chloe, Havana, Riviera, Jacob and step-grandchildren, Chelsye & Max. Also, to mourn Ron are his family in England and an abundance of friends here and across the sea.
