Holliday, Ronald 'Ron' Eric

Holliday, Ronald 'Ron' Eric

April 3rd, 2020

Passed away suddenly at home, on Friday, April 3, 2020 at the age of 60. Beloved husband of Marlene. Loving father of triplet daughters, Zoë, Lilly and Cosette. Predeceased by twin sons, Julian and Kristian (2002). Dearly missed by his siblings: Barb (Bob) Eckensviller, Gerry (Sue) Holliday, John (Belinda) Holliday, Laurie (Tom) Driscoll, Pat (Dennis) Duchesne, Karen (Mike) Cantin; and in-laws:  Pat Myers, Ken (Murna) Myers, Mike (Carrie) Myers, Rob (Dianne) Myers, and Barry Myers. Also missed by 22 nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Ron are asked to consider the LHSF – COVID-19 Response Fund.

Our loving husband and father, words cannot express the pain and emptiness in our hearts.  You were our rock, the steady hand that helped guide us. You were fiercely protective, and with you, we felt like nothing could go wrong and if it did, you would go the ends of the earth to fix it. You were so funny, and would always make us laugh, but you made yourself laugh the most. Your big heart was felt by all and you never hesitated to jump in to take care of others. We will always remember how you loved the freedom of the outdoors, driving with the sunroof open, and soaking up the sun but mostly we will remember how much we were loved.

We love you more than words can say.

David and Moreen De VuonoRemembering growing up is not possible without remembering you Ron. Like the time we learned that a fridge did not make a good boat down at the creek and you got me free, or learning the consequences of playing at a sandpit and almost getting buried when it collapsed. Many firsts, like when we put a new engine in you car when we were teenagers, earlier days of riding your mini-bike to my first ditching of a vehicle (your dads truck). All through our adventures you were always the calm one, cool and collected. I wish we could have got to know Marlene and the girls better. We will always be here for you and your family Ron, rest in peace my friend.
Aman NahanWorking with Ron for 2 years as a co-op student, I got to spend a lot of time learning from him, he was more of a mentor to me.

The Smiths Our deepest and most sincere condolences to the Holliday family. We used to live in the neighbourhood and would always run into Ron when walking our dog. He was an incredibly friendly, kind and happy person, who was always gushing about his girls, their basement theatre sessions, soccer matches, and how proud he was of them. A true family man. Hearing of Ron's passing was shocking and sad news. We can only imagine how difficult this time is for you, as well as for all who knew and loved him. Our thoughts and sympathies are with you all.

Vic MichenerIn the fall of '75, I arrived at Widdifield High in North Bay for Grade 10. I'd just moved to town, and knew very few kids. Ron and Gilbert Moore were two of the first guys I met when I decided to brave going out for cross country. I still remember their welcome and encouragement to this shrimpy 14-year-old as a sign that maybe this school was going to be okay. I was so sorry to hear about Ron. It's clear he had a big impact on many people and he'll be remembered by family, friends, and people who knew him for just a while.
Bob WoodI just learned of Ron's passing. My condolences to Ron's family and close friends. I worked for Ron at one point in our careers at Ford. We always got along great. May he rest in peace.
Frederick James WaringDear Marlene,Zoe,Lilly and Cosette words can not express my emptiness of hearing this news today my heart aches sending true heartfelt condolences to you Marlene and family.All My Love Freddie
John HlodanIt is easy to find words about Ron with his friendliness, ambition and zest for life. I was lucky to live nearby and often chatted about our Ford (St. Thomas Assembly Plant) experiences, Ron mentioning his classic words "I love job". Supervisor and personality extraordinaire. Zoe, Lilly, Cosette and Marlene it is his legacy for you to cherish.
Scott Keating I'm so sorry to hear about Ron's passing. He was my supervisor at STAP and was a good man. As he moved around the plant moving up the latter he would always take time to stop by and have a chat.
Rosanne, Derek, Gracie and Annie BindnerOur deepest sympathies are with you during this heartbreaking time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
David WharramIt was a shock to hear of Ron's Passing. I grow up with Ron from Kindergarten at Trussler Public School , right through high school at Widdifield S.S. Ron was always an honest and compassionate person who would lend a hand when asked. Our loss is heaven gains but he will be dearly missed.
Monica and Liam HoskinsLet the Healing begin. Marlene, Zoe. Lilly and Cosette, may God carry you during this time. We remember our times together at St. Jude.
Andrew McLeodI met Ron at Widdifield SS. I remember him giving me a ride in town and asking me if I liked "America". He then proceeded to play their amazing songs. Then I ran into him in Toronto a few years later. We were, merely, acquaintances but these memories of an outgoing, super friendly guy stuck with me. I was listening to "America" recently and his memory came back and I looked him up. This is such sad news for whom I know would have been an awesome father, friend, husband and acquaintance. Condolences for all who knew this great man.
