Obituary of Ronald Joseph Canavan

July 4, 1946 - March 11, 2021

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Ron, after a courageous journey with cancer, at the age of 74. Predeceased by his parents Hattie (1978) and Cecil (2010) Canavan. He will be terribly missed by his loving wife Laurie Canavan (nee Kinghorn). Ron was the proud and dedicated father of Michael Canavan, Reid (Katy) Canavan, Rhonda (Mike) Rivers, and Carly (Rob) Canavan-Larocque. While Ron truly loved his children, his pride and joy were his 7 grandchildren. Will be sadly missed and remembered by his siblings Richard (Wendy) Canavan, Leona Manuel, Sharon (Ted) Salci, Janet Canavan and Nancy (Marty) Tkachuk.
