Ronald Alfred Davis, 67, of Spruce Grove, Alberta, lost a long battle with cancer after contracting COVID early in December, succumbing to these illnesses peacefully, pain free and with his children at his side on December 25, 2020. Ron is survived by his son Sheldon Davis, Daughter Krysal Buckingham, their mother LeeAnn Davis, grandkids Kalyx, Tyler, Kinley, Emily and Jenna. Brother, Larry of Edmonton, Alberta and brothers and sisters in New Brunswick Danny, Mike, Debbie and Sheila as well as their loving spouses and families. He was predeceased by his parents Fred and Florence of Little River, NB. He leaves behind countless friends that will forever be touched by his part in their life. The family would like to thank them greatly for all the support they have received throughout this difficult time.
There are not many people that have met Ron that have not left his presence without a smile or a good laugh at one of his offside, or dad jokes. He always had a positive and upbeat attitude that was infectious to all those around him. Ron was not one to stay put, he could be found visiting his kids and grandkids almost daily. Heading out to a local coffee shop to visit with one person or another, he always seemed to know someone no matter where he went. His passion, other than his family, was riding motorcycles. The miles he would put on in a summer were astounding. He would often meet up with groups of friends and just start riding, ending up on the open road for a few hours up to a few days. He will be missed in the community, especially the biking community that he spent most of his summer with. We will miss you Dad/Papa/Ron, may you be at peace and forever in our hearts.
The family has decided to forgo a formal service until such time that the restriction on gatherings are loosened. We will notify when a celebration of life is planned.
