Klier, Ronald Wayne James

KLIER: Ronald Wayne James passed away peacefully at Bren-Del-Win Lodge in Deloraine, Manitoba on June 7, 2021 at the age of 77 years. Ron was born in Souris, Manitoba on May 15, 1944.

Ron lived in Souris until he moved to Brandon where he and his beautiful wife June had two wonderful children. Ron got a job working in Brandon at BMHC and had worked there for 39 years as a Power Engineer.

Ron and family had a cabin at Oak Lake where they enjoyed fishing and spending time with family and friends around the fire telling stories and jokes.

Ron was a son, husband, father, grandfather and a loyal friend. Ron is survived by his wife June, son Greg (Debbie), daughter Shauna (Duncan), and grandchildren Bradley, Jasmine and Kailee.

In keeping with Ron’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A graveside service will be held at a later date for family and friends. For any donations, they can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba.

“DAD – Grandpa” – We lived, loved, laughed and shed a few tears.

We will always remember the happy times “DAD – Grandpa” – We will

  1. To the Klier Family and Donna,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of Ron. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad and difficult time.
    When we were all growing up in Souris Ron was a regular visitor to our farm. He and Fred had a good time with their beebee guns. He always had a smile and was a real jokester.
    Even though we have not seen Ron for years we still remember those times on the farm.
    Treasure your memories.
    Sincerely,
    Fred and Sharon Kelesnik

  10. I;ve known Ron since his cousins Donna and Linda were just little kids we would go to his parents farm and playing the yard and just laugh and have fun. I still miss your grandparents ( Ron’s Parents). June I know you have a wonderful place in Deloraine now to live and I am sorry for your loss, but your new found friends will certainly help to make you feel loved and comfortable too. One day I’ll go for a drive to Deloriane and we can have a nice visit, when it is safe to do so.

  13. June, Greg, Shauna & family; I remember Ron’s cousins Donna & Linda
    Although I knew he had ongoing health issues, I nevertheless was shocked & saddened to learn from Sheila recently of Ron’s passing. Had life been normal in the last year & a half we probably would have had at least a couple of get-togethers over coffee to catch up. I am going to miss that but I hope to keep in touch with you, June.
    I was 6 & Ronnie was 4 when my dad & mom & I moved to an acreage across the road from the Kliers. At some point Ronnie & I got together & became good friends – Ronnie had trucks & I had a massive sandpile that we spent hours playing in. We rode all over town on our bikes but one of our favourite places in the summer was where the Creek was just a babbling brook West of town off the Highway; we could see his uncle Ed Klier’s place on the other side. In the winter we slogged through the snow with our skates, hockey sticks & a shovel to skate on a pond below the track embankment at the rear of the Klier property; we’d stand it for as long as we could, returning home completely frozen! In the same spot in the summer, we’d watch twigs be swallowed up by quicksand. In 2006 during the Souris 125th celebration, Ron & I arrived at the ’48, ’49 & ’50 class reunions at exactly the same time! It was so good to reconnect & I am so glad that we have been able to maintain our connection. He will always be Ronnie to me & I shall miss him. – Gaye
