(21 October 1956 – 19 July 2022)

Guided safely to the loving and embracing arms of his dear Mother, the family announces the peaceful passing of our beloved brother, uncle and cousin Ron at home on 19 July 2022 in his 66th year.

Predeceased by his father Robert (2000), mother Lois (2020), sister Colleen (2012) and brother Patrick (1998). Survived by his brother Daniel and brother-in-law Gregory Luciani, nephews Connor (Selena) and Riley and several cousins, particularly our very special cousin Bernice Brown who has always been there for all of us.

Ron was an avid lover of the bagpipes and loved to go to all the Scottish festivals. Ron enjoyed camping, swimming, playing basketball, music and dancing. Ron was happiest being surrounded by family and friends.

Ron will be missed by all who knew and loved him at Community Living Hamilton and by all those who cared for Ron at home over the past many years. The excellent care provided by Bayshore PSW’s and Nurses that kept Ron at home with us is greatly appreciated by the family. Ron loved all the special attention he received from his everyday PSW’s Mick, Geraldine, Barbara, Gerald and Everlita. Ron was truly content while these kind and caring people were around him.

Many thanks to all of the medical doctors and nurses of the St. Joseph’s Palliative Care Team in providing the guidance to assist us in allowing Ron to pass peacefully at home.

Friends will be received by the family on 22 July 2022 from 11a.m. to 12p.m. at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St. Dundas, immediately followed by Ron’s service in the chapel. Interment to follow at White Chapel Memorial Gardens. Reception to follow next at the Cattel Centre next to the Funeral Home. The family has requested that all of those attending wear a mask. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you donate to Community Living Hamilton, McMaster Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice.
