March 16, 1930 – August 6, 2011
Sadly we announce the passing of our much loved husband, father and grandfather.
Born in South Shields, England he immigrated to Canada in 1955 with his first wife Audrey, the mother of his four children. Ron was predeceased by his parents Cpt. James and Laura Hunter and his two sons Jason and Clive. He is survived by his amazing wife of 38 years, Terry, his son Phillip, daughter Melanie (Brian) and grandchildren Shannon, Shaun, Mason, Grady, Brianna and Cory, as well as great-grandchildren Kayden, Caylee and Terra.
He spent his working life as a First Class Marine and Stationary Engineer in BC and AB, eventually retiring in 1990 to realize his dream of building his own home on acreage in Parksville. Ron’s great pleasures in later life were his dogs Winkie and Jock and his three fingers of scotch at 4pm!!
We would like to extend a special thank you for the compassionate care given by the Palliative Care Unit at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
In keeping with Ron’s wishes, there will be no service held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the World Parrot Refuge, PO Box 645, Alberni Hwy, Coombs, BC V0R 1M0.
