Ronald Amos

April 20, 1924 - April 15, 2013

Tribute

Ron Amos came into this world on April 20,1924 and left as he lived his life, a true gentleman and gentle soul, on April 15,2013.

He was born in Silverstream, Saskatchewan moving to Penticton at age six. He enlisted in the army at sixteen and served with the Canadian Grenedier Guards Tank Division. His overseas duty saw him in the European theatre including the Hochwald Forest and the Falais Gap ending when he volunteered for Pacific service as the war ended. He was haunted the rest of his life with his memories which he seldom talked about. This led him to become a tireless volunteer to contribute to the families of those who did not come home. He became President of the Legion, Zone Commander, Pacific and Federal levels; member of the Oliver Fastball League; President of Kiwanis, Akela (leader), with Dorothy as Brown Owl, for the Boy Scouts; Masonic Lodge and Shriners; RCMP Auxillary policeman; served on the Board of Directors to design and build the new Sunnybank; ran as one of the first candidates for the Reform Party. He married the love of his life, Dorothy Jean, on February 10/1948 and celebrated their 65th anniversary this year. Together they had three children, Brian (Karen), Wayne, and Nancy (James); grandchildren Trevor (Lisa), Kelsey (Anders), Sara (Brian), Katie (Adam), Matthew and Erin. He is predeceased by his first great grandchild, Mya Anne (daughter of Trevor and Lisa). He is the last man standing for many of those that are dear to him and he headed home, rocking Mya Anne in his arms, to reminisce. In lieu of a service, Ron requested that those who wish to pay their respects visit Dorothy at Mariposa Gardens, Osoyoos at their convenience.
