1948 – 2008
Ron passed away December 30, 2008 in Duncan, B.C. after a brave fight with cancer. He will be sadly missed by his family here, Nola and Kara and the rest of the Nahirnicks, by his Mom, June from Texas, by his sister Marsha from Hawaii and many friends. Although born in Texas, he spent most of his adult life in British Columbia, (when he wasn’t off sailing in the tropics).
He spent a number of years on Lasqueti Island and the Parksville area, but considered his anchor planted when he moved to Caycuse in the early 1990s.
Ronnie was a strong member of the community, serving with the CVFD and the Area Planning Commission and was well known on the West Coast for the many sailboats he designed and built.
A Memorial will be held on January 24, 2009 at the Lake Cowichan Fire Department firehall from 2 pm – 4 pm.
