Ronald Peters

Peters, Ronald George (Ron) June 25, 1931 – July 5, 2015. Ron passed away peacefully in Langley, British Columbia, with his family at his side. He was born and raised in Regina and later moved to Duncan on Vancouver Island, where he met and married Cynthia Rosamund Sherrick. Ron and Cynthia raised their three children in Maple Ridge before returning to the Island to live in Ladysmith. After Cynthia passed away, Ron spent a number of years on Gabriola Island, a place they both loved. Ron was active in the Unitarian Congregation, where he gave lectures on cosmology and evolutionary biology. A man of eclectic skills and interests, he taught both English and math, had an abiding interest in the sciences and was a talented builder and craftsman. He also had a great sense of humour, which served him well when he became a resident first at the Renaissance Seniors Home and then at Magnolia Gardens Care Centre. He was predeceased by Cynthia, his parents Ernest and Veronica and his brother Ted. He is survived and will be greatly missed by his sisters Joan and Marie; his children Ken (Helen), Evelyn (Andrew) and Laura (Steve); and his grandchildren Jeffrey, Nick, Keegan and Gavin. Many thanks to the excellent staff of Magnolia Gardens, who gave him professional and loving care throughout his stay.
