DUDLEY, Ronald (Ron) Stephen (Ret’d Sergeant CD) Passed peacefully on Sunday, January 17th, 2021 at the age of 68. Loving spouse of Nina Hollington. Cherished son of the late Kenneth and Rose Dudley. Beloved father to Melanie (Ian), Melissa (George), James (Lesley) and stepfather to Victoria Grace Hollington. He will be sadly missed by his grandchildren Alex, Aleeyah, Madelyn, Gavin and Travis. Dear brother to Sheila (David), Margaret (Stephen), Ken (Debbie), Susan (Michael), Velma (David), Linda (Paul), Gary and Victoria (Paul). He will be fondly remembered by many of his nieces and nephews.

Ron joined the military in 1969. When he left for his recruitment training, all of his family met at his home on Darlingside Drive. They then all drove down to Union Station to say their goodbyes and to give him a Dudley Family send off. He graduated in 1970 from Cornwallis, Nova Scotia Naval base, then headed off to Borden to take his training to become a supply tech. Ron was posted in many places over the years which included Downsview, Calgary, Whitehorse, Trenton, Regina, Toronto and served a tour in the Middle East. His final posting was with the Sea, Army and Air Cadets. Ron was very proud to serve his country for over 40 years and retired as a Ret’d Force Sergeant. Private family visitation will be held at the OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King Street West (905-721-1234). Online condolences may be made at

Being a close-knit family I have to many wonderful memories to pick just 1
- returning from your deployment safe
-whipping me around the dance floor to a polka
-putting me in a hockey net at 4 with no equipment taking slap shots
-the hug with the extra firm pat on the back that said, I love you with no words
-when you decorated your basement with red/green tissue paper for
Xmas and asked “do you think dad would be proud?”
Those are just a few.

I’m sorry I didn’t know
I’m sorry you didn't tell us
I’m sorry I didn’t say hello before I said ...... so long
Love you Ronnie

If one measures a man by what he truely leaves behind then you scored 100 percent , all your children are great people and your grandchildren the absolute best . Big hearts and the kind of individuals one wants to be with always. That comes from learning by example. Good job thanks to you and Julia
We did not get around to that 10,001 essential joke book for every Canadian that we discussed. You left tooo soon.
Happy trails You are missed .

Ron was an important member of our RCSU family, there was a group of us that worked with Ron in Toronto for well over 20 years. Ron’s sense of humour made us laugh, especially when we really needed it. But when it came time to work, he was serious, articulate and always willing to lend a hand. He loved his kids and his grandchildren and spoke of them often. His passing has saddened so many, you will not be forgotten Ron.

Ron, words cannot express what I feel in my heart. You always called me on my birthday without fail and this year I will miss that cheerful greeting. I am so glad that you and Kenny had such a great day at Jen's in the summer. You touched so many people's lives in so many ways. You were one of a kind Ron and I love you dearly. Rest in peace knowing you were so loved.

Ron was so loved by the children at St. Margaret. He always took the time to acknowledge their greetings and read the special cards they made for him. They called him Mr. Ron, and every visit he made to our classroom was special and fun. I will miss Ron with all my heart. May he Rest In Peace.
