CARPENTER, Ronald Dare
December 23, 1933 – October 25, 2011
It is with saddened hearts that we mourn the passing of Ronald Carpenter. Ron was a jack of all trades. He was a man that served the Royal Canadian Navy, a man that fathered seven children, a man that always had numerous projects on the go and a man that could always bring a smile to your face.
Ron is predeceased by his son Michael and wife of 56 years Betty. He is survived by daughters Bonnie Harvey (Lance), Brenda Medgyes (Imre), and survived by sons Brian, Brad (Cathie), Darrel (Alisa), and Rick. Ron was also a grandfather to 10 grandchildren- Cheryl Walker, Drew Harvey, Jeremy, Kris, Matt and Anneke Medgyes, Bryce Carpenter, Teresa Carpenter, Karley Carpenter and Ashley Husak (Jay). Ron also leaves behind brothers Chester (Lorraine), Ernie (Carol), and Art (Bev), along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Ron will be remembered most for his courage and his ability to bring humour into every situation. He had the exterior of a man much more weathered, but the demeanour of a young school boy who was thrilled to create and eager to explore what technology had to offer.
No service is planned, as per Ron’s wishes.
