With deep regret, we announce the unexpected passing of Ronald James Rairdan in Stettler, Alberta on October 6, 2020.
Ron was well-loved for his kind and gentle nature as well as his constant willingness to lend a hand whenever he was able. Ron’s passion was
farming, and he was able to embrace that passion right up until the day of his passing. Ron resided on the same piece of land where he was born, the property that was homesteaded by his father in 1906. He dedicated his life to continuing his father’s entrepreneurial legacy, building a successful farming operation through nearly six decades of hard but rewarding work.
In his later years, he turned his focus towards passing his knowledge and experience on to the next generation of farmers in the local area.
Ron was the seventh child of Albert and Isabelle Rairdan. He is predeceased by his parents and his wife Sandra, as well as his five brothers; Ken (Henrietta), Murray (Eileen), Ross (Norma), Larry and Jerry as well as his two sisters, Helen (Glen) Munro and Eileen Krejci. Ronald leaves behind two sons, Greg (Nomi Steen) and Bryan (Wendy) as well his two grandchildren, Asa and Maya. Also mourning Ron are his special friend Maureen Gongaware, two sisters in law, Norma (Larry) and Kelly (Jerry), one brother in law, Ward Krejci (Eileen), numerous nieces,
nephews and cousins and many close friends.
A private funeral service will be held at Stettler Funeral Home on October 24, 2020 at 1:00PM with the public invited to attend via live stream.
