It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Ronald Nast on March 18, 2020, at the age of 76. Ron passed away peacefully, with his family by his side.
Ron was born May 1, 1943, in Flin Flon, MB. His family moved to Oak Point where he met his wife Shirley, of 56 years. He and Shirley spent a few years moving around, working, and then settled back in Oak Point, MB in 1972. Ron was able to retire young. He loved to fish, and spent many summers at Fairford fishing. Together they spent 32 winters in Mesa, Arizona. Their door was always open to many friends and family.
Ron is survived by his wife, Shirley; sons, Richard and Barry (Karla); grandchildren, Tyler, Rachelle and Nichole; two great-grandchildren, Bailey and Weston; along with his twin brother, Alfred; and brothers, Edward and Norman. Ron will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
A private graveside service will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2020, in the Lundar Municipal Cemetery, with James McGillan officiating.
Our family wishes to thank the home care and Palliative staff for the wonderful care of Ron.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Ronald's memory to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation Inc., 675 McDermot Ave., Room ON 1160, Winnipeg, MB R3E 0V9.

Special hug to my "mom", from her favorite "son" from another mother. :) Time helps, just be still and listen, you will get the peace and calm, as time does truly heal...
