It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother, uncle and friend, Ron Marchildon. Ron had battled health issues for the last few years but his passing came unexpectedly.
He is survived by his sisters Michelle Jorgensen (Gord), Lorette Blondeau (Dan), his brother Ken, 7 nephews, one niece and 5 great nephews.
Ron leaves behind many friends including his best friend Carl and girlfriend Debbie.
Ron was born in Outlook Saskatchewan, the second child of Emile and Johanna Marchildon. The family lived in many places until settling in Nelson when Ron was 6. Then at age 11, they moved to Salmo. He graduated from Salmo Secondary School in 1979, then started his working life at Cominco in Trail. He worked there until the time of his death. Ron spent many hours enjoying the great outdoors on a quad or hiking. He loved to hunt and fish with his buddies.
Ron will be sadly missed by family and friends.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
