It is with heavy hearts and much love that we announce the passing of Ron Shellenberg, Sunday, April 6, 2014 at Talarico Place, Castlegar.
Ron was born in Waldheim, Saskatchewan on August 26, 1941 to Ben and Olga Shellenberg but grew up and was educated in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was older brother to sister Florence and
Ron moved to Castlegar in 1966, where he met his wife of 46 years, Gail Nemrava. Ron and Gail made their home in Castlegar, having 3 children, Rhonda, Brent and Leah.
Ron was a very social creature and made his living in various forms of transportation: airplane, long-haul truck and then taxi. Wherever Ron went there was much humour, rockin tunes and many cups of coffee.
Ron enjoyed classic rock music, documentaries and science shows, planes, trains, automobiles and all things sweet.
Left to mourn are his wife, Gail, daughter Rhonda, son Brent (Karen), daughter Leah, and grandchildren Robyn, Liam, Nick and Amanda.
The family would like to thank the amazing staff at Talarico Place for the love, care and attention they gave to Ron and his family. They are truly angels
who walk among us. Thank you to Dr. Merritt
and Dr. Vasil for their care over the years.
At Ron’s request, there will be no funeral.
Miss you much, love you always…
Rock on Ron!
