It is with great sadness the family of Ron Daigle announces his peaceful passing on Friday, September 4, 2015 at Foothills Hospital in Calgary.

Ron was born June 21, 1931 in Caribou Mines, Nova Scotia. He moved to Kimberley in 1949 where he worked in drilling exploration. He also worked at the CKEK radio station in Cranbrook where he hosted a country music show, at the Kimberley Fire Department and for Cominco. In 1954 Ron married Beverley Bailey.

Music was a big part of Ron’s life. He was a well-known musician in the area for over 60 years. Ron also enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, and spending time with his family and friends.

Ron is survived by his loving wife of 61 years Bev, son Dave (Linda) of Cranbrook, daughters Karen (Rob) of Calgary and Kathy (Guy) of Montreal, 8 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, his brother John (Betty) of Marysville and his sister Anne St. James of Chico, California.

Each life is a song, and Ron sang his well.
