It is with deep sadness, and with family at his side, we announce Ron’s passing, after a brief intense struggle with cancer.
Ron was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the third child of the late Phillip and Pauline Daniluck. At the age of 5, his family moved to the Swan River Valley to begin farming. After high school graduation, he furthered his education at the University of Manitoba, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Summers during University years were spent working at the Inco mines in Thompson, MB. He then took some time to travel through parts of Canada and the U.S. working at various jobs before eventually settling into his life long career as a vocational rehabilitative counselor with the Department of Family Services. It was a career that he found rewarding, especially when he was able to secure employment for a client. Ron retired in the spring of 2008.
It was with good natured humor that his friends would joke with him that, after traveling two countries Ron would return home to Swan River to meet his future wife of 34 years, Joan. They were married in Swan River on September 2, 1978.
Ron enjoyed outdoor recreational activities and many family vacations were spent camping, where we all looked forward to boating, waterskiing, etc., and at the end of the day a big campfire. It was at this time that Ron most enjoyed a cup of coffee, with just a “drop” of Drambuie. One of Ron’s activities during retirement was a daily walk in Vermillion Park with his much loved cocker spaniel, Jessie.
Left to embrace the memories given to us are his wife of 34 years, Joan, his daughter Janine and his son Devin, both of Nanaimo, BC.
Surviving relatives are his brother Ralph (Carol) of Revelstoke, BC, sisters Donna Daniluck and Darlene Smith, both of Edmonton, Alberta; Sisters-in-law Janice Sokolowski of Calgary, Alberta and Joyce Walkow of Swan River, MB and brother-in-law Raymond (Lynda) Walkow of Benito, MB as well as many nieces and nephews and cousins.
