Ronald "Ron" John Bono

11 September, 195420 April, 2021

Ron passed away suddenly on April 20, 2021 in his home in Gold River. Ron was raised in Cumberland BC, spent his life as a faller and was lucky enough to retire early after a successful career. Ron was a loving, devoted husband, and best friend to his wife Deb and they had many adventures together. He spent much of his time with his vast community of friends fishing, hunting, or just for a good hang out. His wicked sense of humor would always fill a room with laughter, and he’d always have a beer and a story ready to share if you stopped by. You could always depend on Ron if you needed a helping hand. He will be deeply missed by many.

Ron was predeceased by his parents Reno (Porky) and Elizabeth (Betty) Bono. He is survived by his wife Deborah Bono, his children Simon Stevenson (Camille), and Dallas Stevenson, his grandchildren Noah and Ethan, his sister Sheila Simon (Frank), nephew Jonah Simon (Jessica), and great nephew Miles.

There will be no service held but we ask all that loved him to have a beer in his honour and tip one out for Ron.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you do something to help a neighbour or a friend, just as Ron always did.

We will miss you dear brother in-law. Our family will hold in our hearts the memories of all the good times we spent together and the laughter we shared. The Love you had for our sister was unmatched and we are so grateful for that.

So remember him as a wee boy, we visited his home often and his family ours. Porky and my dad best friends , I am so sorry for your loss Sheila and Deb and family. I do not drink but I am sure Cracker will have a beer in hand along with Porky to meet you and enjoy the many jokes you will share when you are sitting at the heaven table.

Ron was one of the most caring people I've known, a wonderful sense of humor, greatly admired by my 3 kids. My 2 sons Brad and Nate along with their cousin Jarrett will miss their annual golf game in Gold River. He was a very supportive husband to Deborah. Far to soon to be taken from us, he will be sorely missed.
