August 10, 1926 – February 27, 2023
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our Dad and ‘Pa’ Ronald Frederick Cann. Survived by son Robert (Helen) and daughter Susan (David), grandchildren Victoria (Vince), Nicholas, and Rebecca; daughter-in-law Fresia; sister-in-law Irene in England; numerous family and friends worldwide.
Predeceased by parents Ethel and Frederick, brother Jim in 2012, and wife Iris in 2021. Dad was born in Great Yarmouth, England and joined the Royal Navy in 1944 at the age of 17. From 1947 to 1960 Dad worked at various companies as a draftsman. In 1960 we emigrated to Tasmania, and after a brief stint back in England, emigrated again to Canada in 1964. Dad was a Mechanical Engineer for Wright Engineers in Vancouver for 25 years, including 3 years in Australia and a year in Spain. Mum & Dad travelled extensively, and moved houses a total of 12 times, over three
countries, residing for the past 30 years in Qualicum Beach. Dad loved his garden and spent many happy hours there; also, in his workshop tinkering with whatever needed fixing. Dad was a wonderful man; a true gentleman and we shall miss him greatly. No service by request.
