Ron entered into eternal rest December 23, 2014 at the age of 70 after a short illness. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving wife Martha and two sons Brent (Joanne) and Joseph. Ron is also survived by his sister Sharon (Gerry Erlam) and will be remembered for his love, humour and gentle ways by other family and supportive friends.

Ron was a keen player and long-time member of the Kelowna Badminton Club. He enjoyed a good game of bridge with his wife, Marty as his partner in life, love and bridge at the Westside Senior and Duplicate Bridge Clubs.  Ron was fond of outdoor adventures, biking, hiking, fishing, and camping.  Every activity brought him joy and camaraderie.

At Ron’s request there is no service. Should friends so desire, tribute donations can be directed to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation/hospice palliative care fund or the Nature Conservancy of Canada

Arrangements entrusted with Springfield Funeral Home.
