May 22, 1960 – January 29, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ronald Speta.
Ron was born in Invermere, with exception to his family moving around a lot. He came from a family of 12, his parents pre-deceased along with his brothers Kurt and Tom Speta.
Ron met his wife Jacqueline 33 years ago, of those 33 years together they were married for 32. They had two children, Jerrett and Rebecca.
He worked at the Radium sawmill for 34 years, and always had lots of stories to tell. Ron had many hobbies such as: hunting, fishing, gardening, and bird watching to running a small farm with many animals. And he loved to spend time with his grandkids, Harley and Lacey. They were his pride and joy, and he was a proud papa.
He is survived by his wife Jacqueline Speta, son Jerrett Kennedy and daughter Rebecca Hecken (husband) Michael Hecken, and grandkids Harley and Lacey Hecken. Ron passed away at the age of 58. He will be missed dearly , and loved always.
A celebration of life will be held until a later time, where we will have a BBQ Big Ron style. There will be a posting for that so friends and family can join us to celebrate his life .
