"The Delta Optimist"
Sat., May 5, 2001
RONALDS, Ivan Frederick
Born in Bathurst, New Brunswick on October 28, 1918. Passed away quickly and peacefully on May 1, 2001 at Delta General Hospital after a long battle with cancer. Devoted husband of Mae Elizabeth (McLean) Ronalds, father of Ken (Susan), Ian (Lorel), and Bill (Joan). Grandfather to Kelly (Jono), Scott Nicole, Julia, Christine, Kimberly, and Gregory. Step-Grandfather to Alison (Greg & Ben) and Jeff. Great-grandfather to Madeline.
After graduating in 1941 from the University of New Brunswick in Civil Engineering, Ivan served overseas with the R.C.A.F. in World War II. Engineering projects took Ivan all over the world while based in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. As a dedicated and supportive father he assisted his sons, daughters-in-laws and grandchildren in so many ways. His generosity quietly continues through efforts like the Ivan F. Ronalds Engineering Scholarship to UNB students.
In retirement Ivan dedicated his creative energy, wit and organizational skills to the Tsawwassen Kinsmen Center, the Lawn Bowling Club and the Tsawwassen United Church. This proud Maritimer was a well-respected member of the community and will be greatly missed.
The family would like to thank everyone who helped Ivan achieve the quality and dignity he sought in life. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Tsawwassen United Church, 693 53rd Street on Tuesday, May 8, 2001 at 3:00pm.
