Eastern Star mojurns the loss of Bro. Ronald Oakley, PGP of NB


1946 – 2020
Ron Oakley of Moncton passed away on June 23, 2020 at the Moncton Hospital. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the Late Thomas and Minnie (Purdy) Oakley.

He retired from Canada Post after a 36 year career. Ron was a member of the Masonic Lodge Zetland Chapter Lodge No. 24 F&AM, the OES Zetland Lodge No. 26 as well as the Harrisville United Church.

He will be dearly missed by his wife Faye; children; Bonnie Beers, Wendy Oakley, Bill Oakley, Tom Oakley; sister, Amy Keddy, grandchildren Scott, Alex (Jolaine), Katie, Ben (Brittany); great-grandson Logan and several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents he was predeceased by a brother Jim and a granddaughter Megan.

Ron spent many years enjoying bowling, darts yet his cherished times were on the water with a fishing rod in hand. However it was moments spent with his family and the joy he had watching his grandchildren grow.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions there will be a private family service at The Harrisville United Church on June 27, 2020. The interment will take place at the Lakeside Cemetery.

Donations made to the IWK Children’s Hospital or the Lottie L. Kyle Scholarship Fund (OES) or a charity of the donor’s choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.
