THOMAS, Ronald Evan 'Ron' - Ron passed peacefully into his Saviour's presence on November 5, 2019 age 73 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer at Juravinski Hospital.
Beloved husband of Jennifer Thomas for 43 years and father of Jonathan (Nicole) and Matthew (Cheryl). We have many good memories together as he was a devoted husband and father.
He was adored by his grandchildren Luke, Elaine, Caleb and Aaron whom he loved to spend time with. They will remember him as cheerful, fun and always interested in them. Ron will also be deeply missed by his sister Joan (Terry) and his extended family and friends.
Ron taught in Hamilton high schools for 30 years.
He served God faithfully in the Church of God in Hamilton, fulfilling many roles over his lifetime. Throughout his illness, he trusted God regardless of the outcome, keeping these words on his heart from Zephaniah 3:17:
The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
He is absent from the body, but at home with the Lord!
Thank you to all who cared for him in hospital and for the many who upheld us in prayer.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Mount Forest Camp.
Visitation will be held Sunday, November 10th from 2 - 4pm and 6 - 8pm at Bay Gardens Funeral Home, 1010 Botanical Dr, Burlington. Memorial Service will be held there on Monday, November 11th at 11am.
Private interment at Woodland Cemetery
