Joseph James Ronald (Ron) Cooney

COONEY, JOSEPH JAMES RONALD (RON)

 

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we must say goodbye

to an amazing husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.  Ron was a loving, kind man who never had a harsh word for anyone.  He was a gentle man of few words, but brought great joy to the whole family.  Ron was born on July 9, 1929 in Portage la Foret, Quebec and passed away peacefully in

Kelowna, BC on January 27, 2013

at the age of 83 years.  Ron is survived by his loving wife, Alice Cooney of 58 years; his five children: Rod, Deb, Mike (Carolyn), Al (Marlys) and Sandy (Gerry); his many

grandchildren: Steven (Adele), Tymara (Johnny), Kyla (Marc), Tyler-Lee (Alison), Lindsey (Mike), Ashley

(Brandon), Carly (Brendan) and Reggie; as well as his four great grandchildren: Shawn, Austin, Taylor and Karrington.  Ron was sadly predeceased by two grandchildren: Shawn Williams and Geordie Sutherland.  Ron will be cremated and a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5L3.
