It is with great sadness that the family of Ronald Hartnell announce his peaceful passing on May 14, 2013, surrounded by his family.
Beloved husband to Margaret “Peggy” (Laird) for 60 years. Loving devoted father of Richard (Else), Garry (Sylvia), Barry (Susan) and Douglas (Tina), grandpa to Joshua, Douglas, Cherie (Kevin), Jessica, Aaron, Kelsey and Garrett and great grandpa to Callie, Jordyn and Reese, brother to Douglas and uncle to many nieces and nephews and their families.
He was predeceased by infant son, William Bernard “Bernie” and sisters, Jean and Ferne.
Ron was born in New Westminster, BC, on September 11, 1927. He raised his family in Terrace where he resided for 40 years. He loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, camping with family and friends. He and Peg retired to Okanagan Falls in 1989 and moved into Penticton in 2002. He made friends easily everywhere he went and visited with them constantly.
He will be missed by many. In keeping
with Ron’s wishes, no service will be held.
