Ronald MURCH


It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Ronald Steele Murch at the age of 87 years. Born in Shaunavon, SK., Ron served over seas in England and Italy in World War II. He returned home to marry his childhood sweetheart, Suzanne in 1946. They moved to Hatzic Prairie and started their family. Throughout the years, Ron worked very hard to support his large family; working for the Dept. of Highways, and construction and logging industries. In his later years, Ron was an active member of the Knights of Columbus; he was a canvasser for the Canadian Cancer Society; and a very proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion, where he took his wife dancing every Saturday night to give her a break from their many children. Ron is survived by his loving wife and family of 13 children, 28 grandchildren, 25 great – grandchildren, 3 brothers and 1 sister. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held for Ron at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 32550 7th Avenue, Mission on Friday, October 15, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at
