Ronald Gordon Cavin

December 13, 1932 – March 4, 2015

It is with sad hearts we announce the passing of Ron Cavin. Dad slipped away peacefully from us in palliative care at Nanaimo Hospital. Born in Campbell River, he made his home in Nanaimo for many years. Dad was a friendly and easy going man who loved to kibitz with all he met. His joyous sense of humour and warm smile will be remembered by his loved ones for years to come. He had a long career in real estate and was a well respected realtor and was the regional manager of Block Brothers Realty and owner of Trend Realty where he was loved by all.

He leaves behind his adoring wife Suzanne, son Alan (Lise), daughter Sandra (Rick), and daughter MaryLou. He loved his grandchildren Alan, Michelle, Lindsay, Scott and Jonathan.

One regret he had was smoking which was the cause of his battle with COPD and made the last year of his life very difficult. A special thanks to the wonderful care he received at Nanaimo Hospital and from Dr. Hepburn.

“ My soul has escaped like a bird out of the snare of the fowler.” Psalm 124

Your journey is complete and a new one has begun. Farewell Dad until we meet again.

We all love you.

A private family memorial to take place at a future date. In lieu of flowers a donation to the BC Lung Association in his memory would be appreciated.
