WHEELER, Ron. September 15, 1948 – August 10, 2014. Ron Wheeler, aged 65, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, Sunday August 10, 2014, after battling liver cancer. Ron will be lovingly remembered by his wife Mona; children, Leslie, Nic (Christa); five grandchildren, Katie, Hunter, Keira, Braeden, Jack; three brothers, Richard (Linda), Craig (Cindy), Scott; step-children Tracy, Desiree, Derek and Shelly; and numerous nieces and nephews. Ron was predeceased by his mother Gladys (1990), father Henry (2004) and first wife Kathy (1997).
Born and raised in Montreal, Ron first moved to Hope in 1978, then shortly after to Boston Bar. He worked at the mill until it shut down and most recently drove snowplow for Emil Anderson in the winter season. Ron loved the outdoors, especially snowmobiling with friends; and fishing, camping and boating with family.
At Ron’s request, there will be no service. An informal remembrance will take place at Boston Bar Hall on Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 1 – 4pm.
A special thanks to Dr. Greggain and the nurses at Fraser Canyon Hospital for their kindness and compassion in caring for Ron and allowing his dog Stanley to stay by his side. Donations may be given to the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society.
