Philip Ronald Kirton

1927 – 2013

Philip Ronald Kirton of Armstrong, born in Birkenhead in 1927, died in Salmon Arm on July 7, 2013. Ron is survived by his wife Gail; stepchildren: John and Kristin; shirt-tail-cousin Doug; and countless friends. If difficulties show the kind of man, then Ron was a man in full. Through his life Ron faced success and failure with vigour and confidence. He met his health problems with stoicism and courage. He treated his family and friends with fairness, love, and dignity. He will be missed. Those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Ron’s name to The Green Party of Canada.
