Ronald Edward Tigner
9 April, 1947 – 22 March, 2021
It is with great sadness to announce that Ronald Edward Tigner passed away suddenly on the evening of March 22, 2021 at the age of 73.
Ron was born in Stettler, Alberta and was the youngest of 4. He had a passion for cars and it started with his first vehicle being a 1958 yellow Corvette that he was very proud of. In his working years, he was a successful store manager of Lumberland/Revy/Rona and valued his employees and customers. His favourite pastime was bargain hunting and he found huge satisfaction in getting a deal; even if he bought something on sale that could only be used once. He was a generous man and would show love to those around him by giving them treasures. He would always find unique and interesting things to collect and give to people. Ron will truly be missed; particularly his sense of humour and gregarious laugh. He is in a better place now and it so sad that his life ended so soon.
His elder sister Marlene Lieskovsky, daughters April Jones and Amber Larsen, son-in-laws, Kevin and Niels, grandchildren, Griffin, Hunter and Lily and former wife Mary, survive him.

I first met Ron and Mary in about 1985. Our daughters attended the same school. We became good friends soon after. I had the joy of spending so many great meals and good company with them all. Our daughters too soon grew into great awesome women. I can tell you April and Amber share the incredible values of their parents, kindness and generosity. Ron would give you the shirt off his back. Ron always made you feel so welcome and a part of his family. Sadly over the years we lost touch Yet when I would run into him he was always the kind and generous person I had always known. He showed a genuine interest in me and my family. Ron you had your struggles but remained an honourable man. You are missed.

I am very sorry to hear of Rons' passing. Many years ago he hired me as a cashier at Revy/Rona. He was a good man to work for and he always backed his employees 100%. Not only was he a good manager, but he was a character to remember. He had a great sense of humour and was quick with the jokes. He also understood that some employees had personal problems and he would help anyone he could. Yes, he was a good man. Rest In Peace Ron.

It was my true pleasure to have met Ron through my wife and shared twenty years of our life experiences He became my closest friend. We were always eating breakfasts together and visiting about our most recent experiences. Ron had a place on Cultus Lake several summers where we would often visit him in the afternoons and share steak dinners together. He came down many times to our home in Seattle. Of course we went to breakfasts. Our favorite Cafe was the old Salmon Bay Cafe that had many torn seats that were always taped up with duct tape. I have a Corvette also which Ron enjoyed riding in. He taught me to shop for great deals. He always had a keen eye for deals. When he gave me construction advise on our home it was always right on. We both were so happy the US presidential election turned out the way it did. Everywhere we went to, Ron would always have a friendly visit with the people around us. In closing, Ron spoke so kindly about his family to me so many times.
