February 8, 1946 – December 2, 2014
Ron passed away peacefully after a 5 year battle with prostate cancer. He will be forever lovingly remembered by his wife of 43 years Heather, daughter Bhari (John), son Donovan (Jamie), grandchildren Jacob, Joseph, Jack, Jamie and so many treasured family and friends. Ron grew up on the Buller farm in Terrace, BC where alongside his sister Elnor and 3 brothers Ken (Erika), Lionel (Suzanne) and Les, learned many valuable life lessons…
Ron loved life and was extremely bright, learning to fix farm equipment at a young age. He transferred these valuable skills to his life where he worked as a heavy duty mechanic and was able to fix anything from trucks to computers. Ron worked at Westshore Terminals as a mechanic then maintenance foreman for 35 years. Here he started the Kids Social Christmas Party in 1977 and the adult Social Christmas Party the following year and made some lifelong friends that he truly treasured.
Ron made friends wherever he went and kept them for a lifetime. He was very generous – helping out a friend or family member with anything from a meal to place to stay, to fixing something for them.
He will be greatly missed by all those lives he touched throughout the years. A Celebration of Ron’s life will be held on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. at Valley View Funeral Home, 14660 72 Avenue, Surrey, BC.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or in true Ron Buller fashion – help a friend.
