It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved father, Ron Laing, at the age of 86, after a courageous battle against cancer. Born in Peace River, Alberta, Ron dedicated his career to the oil industry, starting as a roughneck and progressing through various roles such as driller, push, and eventually supervisor for Bradenor. He later joined Emerald, where he excelled as a supervisor and project manager, eventually becoming a co-owner. Upon retiring, Ron enjoyed spending quality time with his family and friends, and nurturing his cherished 42-year-old acreage.
Ron is survived by his daughter Heather Laing Noble (Ivan), and his two granddaughters, Taylor and Meagan, who reside in Victoria, BC. Despite the distance, Ron always made the journey from Edmonton to Victoria to be with his beloved family.
In accordance with Ron’s wishes, no funeral service will be held. Instead, he kindly requested that any donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, a cause close to his heart. Ron will forever be remembered for his unwavering strength, admirable work ethic, and his love for his family. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
