Ronald (aka Ron)

July 30th, 1931 – March 9th, 2014


It is with great sadness that our father, Ron Roy, passed away suddenly on March 9th, 2014 at the age of 82. Ron was born in Verdun, Quebec on July 30th, 1931 and has gone to be reunited with his wife of more than 50 years, pre-deceased Jessie May Roy (nee Noble).

Ron was a proud member of the Canadian Air Force where he served as a forensic photographer between 1952 and 1977. Travelling was a great passion thereafter with Ron taking one last cruise in Australian waters in January 2013.

Left to mourn his passing are his four children and their spouses Deborah and Daniel Sutton, Christopher and Mila Roy, Ellen Roy and partner John Long, and Cheryl Roy. He will also be sorely missed by his brother Robert (Bob) Roy as well as his grandchildren William Sutton, Joseph Sutton, Bradley Butcher, Brandon Heavens, Cassandra Roy, Jacinth Roy, Serenah Roy, and Joshua Roy.

Funeral Services will be held at the Woodlawn Mt Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave in Chilliwack Friday, April 4th at 3:00 pm with a reception to follow. Ron will be laid to rest in the Legion Memorial Gardens, a designated section which honours Canadian and Allied Veterans at the Vedder View Gardens Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society will be gladly accepted at the service. Condolences for the family may be offered at www.woodlawn-mtcheam.ca.
