RONALD WILLIAM PIUSH
December 20, 1943 - December 17, 2019
Ron was predeceased by his loving wife Delores, who passed away 11 weeks before him. He is also predeceased by his parents, Nick and Rose Piush, and brothers-in-law, Roman Manastersky and Adam Tabacki, plus many other relatives.
Ron is survived by his son Jeff; daughter-in-law Candice; granddaughters, Chelsea and Ava; sisters, Nadine (Nick) Yacheson and Evelyn Piush and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Ron was born in Winnipeg and raised on Pritchard Avenue. It was there that he met his future wife, Delores (Dolly), who lived across the street. Ron and Dolly started dating when Ron was 14 years old. After a 13-year courtship, they married in 1967. In 1969 they purchased what would be their 'forever home' where they raised their family and welcomed their grandchildren.
Ron was a hardworking and dedicated employee of CP Rail for 39 years, where he worked as a Safety Assurance Supervisor. Throughout this time he developed and maintained treasured friendships. Ron's greatest joys included: enjoying the summers at Catharine Lake, fishing, and the simple pleasures of spending time with family and friends. In later years, nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his granddaughters. He enjoyed watching them play soccer and was actively involved in all aspects of their lives.
Ron was a strong man in both stature and character. When his wife Dolly passed away, Ron was heartbroken causing his health to deteriorate. Ron and Dolly have never spent a Christmas apart in 52 years and this year will be no different.
Ron lived life his way, right to the end and will never be forgotten.
A Celebration of Life will be held later this week. Contact family for further details.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)
Our condolences to family and many friends. Our connection to Ron and Dolly was through our dear departed friend Roman Manastersky and Evelyn Piush. Ron has been a rock for Evelyn and she to him with his recent loss of Dolly. What a lovely, thoughtful obituary. It is difficult to say goodbye to siblings as I personally can attest to for three of mine. When the pain and finality subside, we have to remember the good times, the essence of the individual and the honour of their presence when we had them with us. - Posted by: Patrice and Gregory Berko (Friends ) on: Dec 24, 2019
Thanks Ron for always being my reliable, trusted neighbour and friend. Thanks for always keeping an eye on us, our boat and our trailer. Thanks for letting me share adventures of our kids while sipping a beer on your deck. Thanks for removing unwanted guests in the trailer when Paul wasn’t around. Thanks for being my horseshoe partner even though you knew that I “sucked”. Thanks for taking me and Kendall blueberry picking in your secret locations. I know that you and Dolly are together again. Ron, you will be missed. 😘🤗 - Posted by: Lisa Monney (friend ) on: Dec 24, 2019
How can we say how sorry we are that we will never see Ron's smiling face with that great Grin he had as we walked by his cabana every weekend!!! He would always ask if we went fishing and how much we caught?!?! Dolly even shared her famous Tarryall Shrimp recipe with me, the many chats I would have with Ron and his White dog lake friends will never be forgotten... You both will be greatly missed and never forgotten I am so sorry I cannot be at the service but you both will always be in my thoughts.. So glad you will be spending Christmas together..

I consider myself very fortunate to have been life long neighbors to Ron, Delores & family! Dolores and my mom, Arleen, created so many memories together... Many of them included laughing, baking, hairdos in the kitchen and bringing puppies into this world! Ron and my dad had a very special friendship where when either one was in need the other was there to step in and give a hand. They enjoyed many fishing trips together with their group of close friends! Ron & Delores will definitely be missed & always remembered fondly♥️♥️ Much love and positive thoughts are sent to Jeff and family❣️ Corrine, Al & Justin xoxoxo 🥰 - Posted by: Corrine Pringle (nee Long) (Neighbor) on: Dec 22, 2019
It's sad to say good bye to an old friend. We are grateful for Ron and Dolly for being part of our lives; the memories and good times that were shared over the years; the campfires and gatherings, the fishing and most of all the joy and laughter Ron brought to everyone with his big welcoming smile; missed and always remembered. In loving sympathy and friendship - Skip, Erika and Family - Posted by: Skip and Erika Nicholson (Friends) on: Dec 22, 2019
Dear Ev, Nadine, Nick & family, Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of your brother Ronny. We have fond memories of his friendly smile and his loyalty to his family. He will be missed and in our memories and prayers! God Bless! Vichnaja Pamnjat! - Posted by: Harry & Marika (Friend) on: Dec 21, 2019
You will be sadly missed, Uncle Ronnie. I always loved our chats about the lake, fishing, and especially about the wonderful food that you and Auntie Dolly loved to prepare for us all to enjoy. You truly epitomized what family gatherings were about...just sitting and sharing a drink and a story together...keeping it real and simple. You were always interested in finding out what was going on in our lives and I always knew when I saw you I could expect a big hug, smile and enjoyable conversation. I love you and will miss you. xoxo - Posted by: Donna Meyer (Yacheson) (Niece) on: Dec 21, 2019
