Randolph (Ron) Hayes Arthur Villeneuve
June 4, 1931 – March 15, 2015
On Sun., March 15, 2015, we said farewell to our dear Dad, Ron Villeneuve, beloved father of Michael, David, and Lisa (Michael Watson), and forever “Grumple Ron” to his only grandchild, Christopher.
He was the only child of the late Hayes and Lydia (Lil) Villeneuve, and was raised in the Kilmar, Grenville, and Hawkesbury regions. He later worked and lived in Montreal, Toronto, Saint John, Halifax, Newmarket, and Bracebridge.
Predeceased by his first wife, Eva Vivian Scott, and his second wife, Anne Smith, he finally settled in Winchester to be near family and the country life he loved. Notoriously stubborn, Ron met his match with the team at Dundas Manor, who rose to the challenge of loving Dad through his dementia with great humour and respect. We will forever be grateful for their loving care and kindness to all of us.
Ron’s remains have been cremated. The funeral will be held on Sat., March 21 at 11 am at the South Mountain United Church followed by a light lunch at the county library next door. In lieu of flowers, Ron would have appreciated donations to be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice.
The arrangements are entrusted to Byers Funeral Home in South Mountain (613-989-3836).
