We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, dad, grandpa and great granddad. We loved him with all our hearts and will miss him terribly.
Ron was born and raised in Instow, Sask and was one of seven children. He moved to Calgary as a young man where he met and married his wife, Bev.
Ron and Bev resided in Calgary for over 60 years, where they raised their four children, before coming to Lacombe to be closer to family. He truly enjoyed spending as much time as possible with family.
Ron had a busy active life and was lucky to have had many great friends - there was no shortage of fun and laughter. Ron loved the outdoors, golfing, curling and listening to all kinds of music. He was involved with many organizations including the Calgary Elks, Masonic Lodge & Shrine and A.C.T.
Ron was a very kind, loving, gentle and patient man who will be missed dearly by everyone that knew him.
