HAWES, Ronald Douglas
Born on May 18, 1946 in Vancouver, British Columbia to George and Mary Hawes and passed away peacefully on May 22, 2014 in the comfort of his home in Morgan Creek, Surrey, BC. He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Marilyn, his three children, Rob (Lise), Deb (John) and Gary (Courtney); grandchildren Matthew, Ben, Emily, Katie, Olivia, Theo and Henry; three brothers Richie (Bonnie), Bob (Pat), and Jim (Darlene). A Chartered Accountant by training, Ron ran a successful development company in the 80’s and 90’s with his trusted partners Peter Beauchamp and Tom Radatzke. Retiring in his 40s, he has cherished the last 20 years of his life spending time with his wife in Maui, on the golf course with great friends, and especially sharing special moments with his beloved grandchildren, who affectionately called him “Papa”. Gone too soon, Ron managed to live a very full life in his 68 years and will be dearly missed by all of those who were fortunate to know him. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at 11:00am at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Peace Arch Hospital Foundation.
