Ron Eric Whidden
May 15, 1952 ~ July 13, 2011
Most will remember Ron behind the wheel of a yellow taxi, ready to share a joke with friends and passengers to lighten their spirits.
Ron is survived by his friend, business partner and past spouse, Theresa Smith; also by his brother, Tom Whidden; nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews, many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Ron will be missed by all who had the opportunity to know him. His final resting place will be back in Nova Scotia where he spent his youth.
There will be an informal gathering, to remember Ron, on August 25, 2011 from 2-4 p.m. at First Memorial, 1720 Bowen Road, Nanaimo.
The prevention of lung disease or the fight against cancer would be at the top of Ron's list of worthy causes, for anyone wishing to make a donation in Ron's memory.
