Ronald James Morrison

May 10, 1949 – June 15, 2016

Ron passed away very suddenly on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. He leaves in grief and shock his wife, Ruth; daughter, Alexandra (Kevin); grandson, Carson; son, Brian; stepdaughter, Rebecca; as well as his sister, Ann and her family. He will be greatly missed by many loyal customers who became friends (or vice-versa) and his life-long friends in both BC and Ontario.

Ron was a true character who filled many roles: High school football star, Real estate agent, Builder, Santa Claus, Actor, Inventor, Loving husband, Fun Dad and Grandpa, Keen traveler, Enthusiastic teacher, and Animal-lover. Ron had a sometimes-prickly exterior protecting his big, soft heart & soul. He was a gifted mechanic who could fix just about anything except a broken heart.
