Obituary of Ronald Edwin Uloth
Passed away peacefully at the Kemptville District Hospital on January 19, 2020. Born to Milton G. Uloth and Alice Uloth (nee O'Hara) in New Harbour, Nova Scotia. Ron was an enthusiastic airplane pilot and his passion for aviation led to some of his most enduring friendships, most importantly with the Shaws, his "second family." After graduating from the University of Detroit Ron worked as an engineer in Montréal with Canadair and Air Canada. Past President of the Montreal Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association and Treasurer of the Ottawa/Rideau Chapter of the Recreational Aircraft Association. An avid downhill skier, Ronald often traveled to British Columbia and Austria in search of fresh snow (and good bratwurst sausages). After cancer took his first wife Sonya, Ron married Diana (nee Currie) and they lived happily in Kemptville, Ontario. Much loved for his caring nature and sense of humour, Ron will be deeply missed by his wife, Diana, his children, David (Chloé), Geoffrey and Holly; his grandchildren, Sacha and Lila; and his step-children, Donald (Clare) and Douglas (Ann) Bowles. Predeceased by his parents, his sister Irma J. Hatch (Uloth), brother Milton M. Uloth, his "chosen brother" Lawrence Shaw, "second mother" Maggie Shaw, and late wife, Sonya Elaine Uloth (O'Brien). Survived by his much-loved "chosen siblings" Martin (Antoinette) Shaw, Gerald (Barbara) Shaw, June (Bill) Phelps and Eleanor (Lawrence) Shaw. A Celebration Of Life will be held at the ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION, Branch 212, at 100 Reuben Crescent, Kemptville, on Sunday, January 26, at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, World Vision Canada or Kemptville District Hospital palliative care unit (via the 'KDH Foundation').
