Obituary of Ronald Douglas Munro

Family, friends and neighbors were saddened to learn of Ron’s sudden death on May 10, 2019 after a tenacious 13 year battle with cancer.  Ron grew up in River John and spent his working life primarily in the fishing industry in various capacities.  He was a passionate sportsman playing hockey, baseball and golf.  He could always be counted upon to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.  Ron is lovingly remembered by his wife, Alison McCara; his children, James Alexander and Catherine Elizabeth; his sisters, Sandra MacKay, Marilyn (Keith) Heighton; his brothers, Barry (Nancy), David (Ann Marie); his sister-in-law, Linda Munro; his uncle, Earl Holt; many nieces, nephews and cousins.  He was predeceased by his parents, Douglas and Kathleen (Holt); his brother, Charles and his brother-in-law, Bill MacKay.  Ron was blessed with many great friends and cherished the time he spent with them.  Visitation will be held in McLaren Funeral Home, Pictou, NS. from 4-8pm on Monday, May 13th.  A Service of Remembrance will take place at St George’s Presbyterian Church, River John NS. at 2pm on Tuesday, May 14th with Rev. Gail Johnson-Murdock officiating.  To honour Ron’s memory, please lend support to a friend or neighbor battling cancer. Donations to The Lodge that Gives, Halifax, NS would also be greatly appreciated.


Do not go gentle into that good night…

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
