We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Ron on August 22, 2019 at the age of 73.
Ron will be dearly missed by his wife of 50 years Pat, son Craig (Melissa), daughter Selena, granddaughters (Chloe, Brielle, Ashlin and Kaylee), brothers Gary (Marlene) and Bill (Cheryl), and many loving brothers and sisters in-law, nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends. Ron was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, uncle and a friend to everyone.
Born in Victoria in 1945 to Victor and Isabelle Speed, Ron later met and married the love of his life, Pat. After living in Victoria and Nanaimo he settled the family in the Comox Valley where he retired after many years of service with the BC Ferries. Ron had a hilarious sense of humor and all throughout his life created many great memories with friends and family.
A Celebration of Ron’s Life will be held at 2:00pm at the Fallen Alders Hall in Royston on October 5th, 2019
