Ronald Joseph Obituary, Death – The life and death of Ronald Joseph Roy After a brief struggle with illness, Ronald Joseph Roy, better known as Ron, died away on April 8, 2023 at the Vernon Hospice. He was surrounded by his children at the time of his passing. In Newcastle, New Brunswick, on June 22, 1945, Ron Roy was born to his parents, Edgar and Hedwidge Roy, also known as Memere and Pepere. He was the second kid out of a total of six. His anecdotes frequently
detailed the shenanigans that he and his siblings Yoland, Raymond, Thelma, Annette, and Paul got into when they were younger. He struggled with tuberculosis throughout his childhood, and as a result, he spent most of that time away from his family and in medical facilities. After this period, Ron went on to live a full and active life, eventually getting a degree in Economics from the University of New Brunswick. It was there that he met Linda Murphy, who would later
become his wife and his best friend. After relocating to Montreal in 1973, Ron and Linda were blessed with their first child, Catherine, in 1974, only a few short months before moving even farther west to Fort McMurray, Alberta. They named their second kid Gregory (Greg), and it was here that they constructed their first house. It was also here that Ron established a prosperous accounting firm with his business partners.
