Ronald “Ron” Walter Douglas, born April 15, 1933, passed away on January 11, 2018 at Country Meadows Personal Care Home, Neepawa.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife Nina of 60 years; daughter Alice (Neil Wood – Jenna (Braden), Justin and Heather); son Craig’s children Katelyn (John Halashewski – Onyx and Tyndall) and Tyler (Stephanie); daughter Marilynn (Glen Stewart – Miles (Jen) Wyatt and Rhett, Nicole; son Faron (daughter Cassidy); and from his first marriage, daughter Beverly (Les Carruthers – Katherine and Stephen and their families; sister; in laws and many nieces and nephews.
Ron was predeceased by his son Craig in June 2017; brothers Willis and Bill Douglas; Sister and brothers in law Carol & Curt Bereen, David Weick and Ken Murray and infant son Ronnie from first marriage.
Ron and Nina worked as a team in their businesses – Ron’s Cold Storage and JB Drive Inn in Gladstone and the Summer Shack in Carberry. Ron was on Gladstone Town Council for 13 years, a member of the legion and the Elks. The family enjoyed a few years camping and when Craig joined the business, Ron & Nina were able to spend a few winters in Texas. In his retirement years, Ron enjoyed many visits and day trips with the grandchildren; time spent out west, and being involved during harvest. As years went on he was often found taking a well earned nap in the rocking chair with the grandchildren, then great grandchildren.
Ron has been a resident of Country Meadow Care Home since June 2015.
Our family extends heartfelt thanks to the Country Meadows staff for their compassionate care, Dr. Milligan, Clarke’s Funeral Home, Nina’s Red Hat group and many other special family friends.
And as Ron would say…“Hope your day is as ‘Fine As Frog’s Hair’!”
