"ERR" 2005 Obituary

ERRETT, Ron (March 14, 1922-November 24, 2005)
'When war was declared I went to the Naval recruitment officer in Stanley Park to sign up and he asked if I ever had my tonsils out. When informed I hadn't, he told me I couldn't join the Navy.' Next stop was St. Paul's Emergency. Scraping every penny from his bank account, Ron handed over his last $75.00 and had his tonsils removed... then back to the recruiter...then off to the parade square to march and heal for a week. From those early wartime days as an Ordinary Seaman, soon scrambling to lash down 45-pound depth charges in 60 foot seas, Ron earned his way to a North Atlantic Commission and by war's end was commanding a vessel off B.C.'s west coast. Ronald ERRETT always managed to squeeze 26 hours out of every day, more than 35 days from a month, and seemed to cram about 13 months into nearly every one of his 83 years. Most of his meals finished with, 'That was the best one I ever had in my life!' Be it a peanut butter sandwich, a plate of hamburger helper or just mac and cheese... every bite was the best yet! No such thing as a bad Scotch, and all wines were award-winners! Ron was always first off the mark... and first in the pool! His gravelly voiced, 'You can do it!!!' was followed by at least three exclamation marks as Ron was the ultimate motivator when times got tough, business got slow, or when things mysteriously went sideways... yet nary a complaint was ever heard when faced with his own private challenges. So that was Ronald Barrie ERRETT, the giver. Syl's always romantic, darling husband, who lit the candles and passed on little gifts all leading to that special occasion. The total, into-it dad; the grandpa and greatgrandpa extraordinaire; the seaman, the skipper, the new Cub Master mere minutes after meeting the Pack. The Mason, the founding President of British Columbia Kiwanis; the just-back-from-the-war 23-yr. old Director of one our earliest Credit Unions... the roommate that never left a ring around the tub, a kindly, boldly-bursting-with-energy-and-superlatives kind-of-man who could mend most anything with a couple of coathangers and duct tape... and who readily lent his broad-shoulders for any just cause. Surrounded by family at the Pallative Care Unit of V.G.H.'s Jim Pattison Pavillion, Ron just closed his tired but happy eyes and quietly succumbed to the leukaemia that played havoc with papa's 'round the park bicycling jaunts. Ironically, many of Ron's best years in sales and management right across Canada were very much part of The Jim Pattison Group's sign divisions, so a few things kind of came together like they were meant to. Today, wife Sylvia, son Mark and wife Claudia, daughters Lee with husband Victor and Wendi with partner Michael, mother of Mark, Lee and Wendy, Marguerite DAVIDSON, stepdaughter Brandee, grandchildren, Amy, Lena and Katie, Christie with husband Doug, Randall and Shawna, Adam and Cole, great grandchildren Kiley and Mathew, more Friends, more co-workers, more comrades than could ever possibly join him on the aft deck of his ship, all sorely mourn their loss, but surely will be brought to smiles then laughter by the wonderful times and storied memories he delivered in his indefatigable Ron ERRETT way. A private, 8-Bells Burial At Sea will take place in early December with his family planning a celebration of his most wonderful life early in the new year.
