BLAIR

RONALD EDWARD “Ron”

October 2, 1928 – December 24, 2013

  Peacefully at the Ottawa Hospital surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, December 24, 2013, age 85 years.

  Dearly loved husband of Georgina Elliott for 60 years. Much loved and respected Dad of Dick (Liz Dingwall), Andrew (Viktoria Kuznetsova) and Doug (Francine Fiola). Devoted and cherished Grandpa and “Bunkie” of Amanda, Doug, Meg, Darcie, Evan, Sasha, Samantha and Cameron. Great-Grandpa of Anthony and Doug and Becky’s expected child in February. Caring brother of Beth Gillan (Charlie) and David, (Helen). Predeceased by his parents Attie and Lillian Blair and his dear sister Eleanor Lowe (John). Fondly remembered by the entire Elliott clan, Cathy Osborne, many nieces, nephews, friends and Viktoria’s son Bogdan. Ron will be remembered for his great love of the outdoors, his happy time spent on the farm, his many hours being Mr. Fix-it and his love of family gatherings. Throughout his life, he had a remarkably positive affect on everyone who knew him – whether for many years or only a few months.

  Respecting Ron’s wishes, there will be no visitation or services, however, a celebration of Ron’s life will be held at the Civitan Hall in Almonte on Saturday, January 18 from 2 to 5 PM.

  A sincere thank you to the exceptional doctors and nursing staff of the ICU at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus. Heartfelt thanks as well to our friend Reg and his son Josh of the Gamble Funeral Home.

  For those who may want to honour Ron with a memorial donation, please consider the Almonte General Hospital or the Ottawa Hospital General Campus.
