Ron W. Flaherty was born April 15, 1956 to Nellie Unik and Ken Flaherty. The first few months of life he
struggled in hospital to survive. Months later his parents were able to bring him to their new home
where he grew along side his siblings Dennis, Cheryl and Gary. An adventurous spirit he spent many a
day outdoors enjoying Mohawk Park, playing hockey and baseball and forming life long friendships.

As a very young adult Ron was drawn to leave Brantford and travelled west to East Selkirk MB joining his
Grandmother Mary Unik in a small cabin with little amenities. He loved living there and became close
with extended family. There was always a special spot in his heart for Manitoba. Fortunately, he and
Donna would be able to make the trip back a couple of times to make more memories.

Ron worked for nearly 20 years at Domtar Roofing Materials and after recovery from a life changing
accident he started his own business. His passion for the outdoors began a successful property
maintenance business. Ron had a passion for landscaping and could turn terrible grass and weeds into
a beautiful lawn. His clients were his friends with whom he shared wonderful conversations. Working
the grounds he was in his domain, he truly loved it.. Ron believed that every home should have more
gardens especially one of vegetables. He created beautiful gardens and a wildlife refuge in our own back
yard and enjoyed feeding and watching the birds, the rabbits and the squirrels. Ron loved the sparkle of
lights in his pine trees. Having little time to relax in the summer months Ron would enjoy golf, fishing,
bicycling and playing his music in the winter months. An empathetic man, a true Canadian, Ron was
quick to lend a helping hand up, devoting most of his adult life to caring for his aging parents and
improving lives of those around him.

Ron will be forever in the heart of his best friend and soulmate Donna Charters. Together they made
wonderful memories and life experiences. We thank all whom made his journey from this life easier on
Wednesday January 13, 2021, at Stedman Community Hospice

Ron was predeceased by his parents Nellie (Unik) and Ken Flaherty. He is survived by his siblings Dennis
(Barb), Cheryl (Dave) and Gary (Lori), mother- in -law Genevieve P. Charters, sisters in-law Marlene
Charters and Jacqueline Foster, his Aunt Colleen Medved (Fred) and their families. He will be deeply
missed by Anne Gowryluk , Lawrence and Doreen Unik , Myrna Unik, Nellie Unik, all of Selkirk, MB and
Healther Unik (Calgary AB ). Ron was predeceased by many relatives both near and far as well as close
friends who all were very special to him.

My best friend left this world far too early, as a result of an aggressive cancer. His passing was as difficult
as his beginning. As expressions of sympathy please consider a memorial donation to Stedman
Community Hospice or St. Joseph’s Foundation. Arrangements entrusted to Toll Funeral Home.
Following Ron’s wishes cremation and private Interment at Mount Hope Cemetery near his parents will
take place. “Eat the Ice cream, don’t put things off”.

My condolences to Donna and Ron's family. I remember the good times the four of us had golfing. Ron had a smile that could light up a room. I will cherish all of the memories of Ron. I will miss you dear friend.

Ron had an infectious laugh. When he and Donna did their magic with the lawn care for my Mom they always had some good laughs and stories to share. Donna and extended family we want to let you know that we send you our deepest heartfelt condolences from ourselves, Les and Oksana Posan and Stefanie Wiwczaruk. 💕

Donna: Deeply sad to hear of Ron’s passing. Please accept our deepest sympathies. Sue and I will never forget what Ron and yourself did for the two of us when you introduced us in 1997. We’ve been together ever since that day we met on the first tee of the Brantford Golf & Country Club.

So sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was a classmate of mine both at Woodman Drive in the late '60s and at PJ in the early '70s. Back then we were the shorter kids. Haha. I will cherish all the memories of those happier times.

Donna we are so shocked and saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. He was friendly and outgoing and always took the time to chat with us and all the other neighbours. We will miss his smiling face. Marian and Ed McCool.
