Ron Young

December 15, 1947September 9, 2020

It didn’t get much better than Ron Young. And though we will miss him terribly his battle with Alzheimer’s is finally over. He is on the other side in the loving arms of Jessie, Jean, Chuck, Don, Casey and Robbie.

Although Ron was an only child, his family was immense. He was a gentle giant among those that knew him, and a Tom Selleck look-alike. Ron was a great hugger, a favourite uncle, and a twinkle toed dancer. He loved all animals, especially dogs. Some of his favourite things included slow pitch, golfing with his buddies, and together with his wife Judy, entertaining their friends with many backyard barbecues.

Survived by his loving wife Judy, sons Josh and Danny (Pippa) and grandkids Liam, Madison and Broden. Donations in Ron’s memory may be made to the Victoria Humane Society or Elder Care Foundation.

Dear Family of Ron,
We are so saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. We only knew Ron a short time, but he was a dear friend to our mom Angelina at Oak Bay Lodge and The Summit. Despite the dementia, they understood each other. He will be greatly missed on the floor. Our deepest condolences for your loss.
