Ronald (Ron) Doane Pieroway
Pasadena, NL
November 18, 1940 – July 29, 2021

Ronald (Ron) Doane Pieroway, 80 of Pasadena, Newfoundland and Labrador, passed away peacefully on July 29, 2021, in the palliative care unit of the Western Long Term Care Home.

Ron was born in Mary’s Harbour, Labrador but spent most of his childhood years in the Bay St. George area (Gallants and Barachois Brook).  At just shy of 18, Ron joined the Canadian Armed Forces and he proudly served for 32 years, in the Black Watch, and then the Second Royal Canadian Regiment (RCR). He retired in 1990 after serving as Regular Support Staff to the Reserves at the Gallipoli Armories, Corner Brook. Ron was an avid recreational fisherman and hunter, who loved spending his time on the river and in the woods.

Ron volunteered his time with numerous organizations in the community. He was awarded lifetime memberships with the Pasadena Lions Club and the Pasadena Branch 68 of the Royal Canadian Legion. He volunteered with the Pasadena Lions Club Easter Seals Snow-a-rama for the extent of its duration on the West Coast.

Ron is survived by his wife, Vina of Pasadena; daughters Dena (Rick) Wight of Pasadena and Lana (Jean Guevremont) of Ottawa; three grandchildren Dylan, Marleigh, and Yannick; brothers Roy and James; sisters Shirley (Jack) White, Carolyn, Connie, and Donna (Mark Gleeson); sisters-in-law Rona (Harold) Cross, Rose (Charlie) Snow; brothers-in-law Robert (Elaine) Alley, Eric Alley, Frank Crummey.  He is also survived by many nieces and nephews and close friends. He was predeceased by his parents and in-laws, as well as his sisters and brothers: Evelyn, Lorraine, Donny, and Danny and sisters in-law: Joan (Robert) Hulan and Judy.

We, the family, would like to extend their gratitude to his personal support workers Brittany White and Catherine Harty who were a tremendous help in caring for Ron over the last 3 years. Our appreciation also goes out to the staff of Medicine (Floor 3) of Western Memorial Regional Hospital and the palliative care unit at the Western Long Term Care Home, who cared for Ron in the final weeks of his life.
