Born September 22, 1947 in Carragana, Sask.
Ron left us on Monday, August 24, 2009 after a long struggle with complications following a lung transplant. He was a long time resident of Vernon and spent most of his adult life as a faller, working in BC and Alberta. His off-season time was spent following his other love, working on a Vernon area ranch, where he had many good friends.
Ron is survived by his two children, Roberta (Bobbie) Miles and Travis Wetton, his grandsons Brody and Cole, his very special friend and partner, Gayle Tarasoff (Wilson), and six siblings: Ella Ingram (Gerald), Bertha Turner (Richard), Gordon (Gladys), Lloyd (Beverly), Clayton (Anita), and Sandra, as well as aunts, uncles and many cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Doreen Wetton.
At Ron’s request, there will be no funeral service. The family will celebrate his life privately at a later date.
