1950 - 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Ronald Hammond, 70, announce his passing away peacefully at home in Laval on January 19th 2021 after his brave fight with cancer.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of nearly 39 years, Louise, and his son Ian and daughter-in-law Marie-Pier. He was preceded in death by his parents Norman Hammond and Lauretta Wilson and his older brother Ted (Mary Ann). He also leaves in mourning his brother Bruce (Dale); his sister Heather (Robert); his brother-in-law Normand (Suzanne); his brother-in-law Paul (Cathy); as well as nephews Mark and Trevor, and nieces Tiara, Holly and Kim. He will also by deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.
Devoted husband and father, Ron worked for 48 years at Lawson Mardon\Amcor Packaging as graphics manager where he would put on display his meticulous perfectionism and professionalism. Whether it was snowmobiling, fishing or hunting, he loved being in nature. One of the things he was best at was picking a tree, sitting down and taking naps in the forests of Lachute, which is probably why he is more known for shooting off the tops of trees to get Christmas trees than he was known for shooting deer. Avid golfer, he loved simple things like playing cards and going to Chinese buffets.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date when it will be possible. The family wishes to thank the nurses and doctors at the Royal Victoria Hospital and CLSC Laval, specially the Palliative Care unit who gave the best care possible to Ron and allowed him to spend his last days as painless and peacefully as possible at home in dignity. While the family does not wish to impose donations, if people feel the need to, the family would like them to support cancer research foundations across their communities.
