In loving memory ~
Ron Hogg was born in Calgary Alberta August 15, 1957, in the times before Alberta exploded into the metropolis it is now. His mother was a wonderful Scottish woman Anne Duncan Hogg 1925 - 2004 born in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father Colin Steven Hogg 1920 - 2015 born in Elkton, Alberta. He was the youngest of 4 children, Norm, Brenda, Rick, and Ron. He lived his younger years on his mother and fathers' acreage in rural Alberta on the out skirts of Calgary until he moved to Nakusp B.C. in 1983. There he made his life in the village and rarely left until he passed on October 9, 2022. He met a young woman with whom he had a wonderful child, Ciel Colin Hogg born July 11, 1987, and he has grown up to be a wonderful man like his father.
Ron played a big role within the community of Nakusp. His skills as a carpenter were unparalleled along with his ability to handle anything construction related.
Always ready to lend a helping hand to so many in our community, he made time to be available to teach the younger generation the enormous knowledge he held. Ron was, deep down to his bones, a fisherman and all things water, a scuba diver and a boatbuilder. His ability to safely cut down any tree at any time at an unbelievable rate of speed was well balanced with his ability to care for the forest and the trees left standing.
Ron, as we know he would prefer, would want to keep this short and sweet so, he could get back to work.
Those family and friends left behind; we will always feel this loss.
