July 25, 1933 – March 4, 2013
Ron Lingnau quietly left us in the early morning of Monday, March 4, 2013 at the age of 79 years. He was welcomed into the loving arms of wife Betty who left us twenty-one years ago and his parents and brother are waiting in line for that famous hug!
Ron is lovingly remembered by his wife of twenty years, Gladys Wilkins; his daughters, Theresa (Barrie) Dunford, Elaine Lingnau and (Bernie Klauth); his son Ron (Coleen) Lingnau; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; two sisters Gloria (Marv) Baker and Doreen Lefevre; brother Dennis (Ann) Lingnau and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ron was born and raised in Calgary. He lived throughout Alberta and BC but always called Calgary his home, returning in the early 90’s and retiring soon after to enjoy his family and friends. Dad (Grandpa) loved spending time with his family, camping and fishing, hoping to catch the big one! He enjoyed spending time with his wife Gladys on cruises to such exotic places as Panama and the Caribbean. Ron was a proud volunteer with the White Hatters and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #275.
