Obituary Text:

OBITUARY RONALD ALBERT JAMES REGAN 1926-2008 On November 1, 2008 at the West Island Palliative Care Residence, beloved father and grandfather Ron Regan died peacefully after a courageous struggle: A true Englishman to the end of a wonderful rich and full life. Ron was a well-respected aeronautical engineer at Canadair for more than thirty years. He played an integral part in the design and completion of the Canadair Challenger business jet, "the most beautiful business jet in the world," relying on his extensive technical know-how and the expertise of the "boys" from home. He immigrated to Canada in 1952 with his beloved wife, Rita, and they were happily married for over fifty years. His extremely proud daughters, Susan (Dennis Anson) and Jane (Colin Young), and his loving granddaughters, Amanda, Kelly and Caitlin, will miss him terribly. Ron was a private man who could be seen like clockwork walking the streets of Pointe Claire, always dressed in his coat with his cap on his head. As he grew older, the range of his daily walks decreased from 2-hour 10-mile rambles to the neighbourhood surrounding the apartment he shared with his wife. In recent years, people at the Pointe Claire Shopping Plaza could almost set their watches by the routine he kept: shopping for groceries, buying the newspaper, going to rent a movie, having his Friday night dinners at the Topaze, or just sitting resting his feet, watching the world go by. He would often tell us of the people who would say hello because they knew one of us, or because he had worked with them or their fathers at Canadair. Ron was an avid model-maker all of his life. He spent many happy hours making meticulously-detailed models of trains, ships, and famous architectural monuments. One of his models, "The Dollhouse," sits in the front window of Royal Lepage Village at the Pointe Claire shops. He was still working on "The Duomo of Florence" while at the Palliative Care Residence. Our Dad was a real Gentleman - an extremely kind, honest, wise, and loyal man - and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. LOVED ALWAYS, FORGOTTEN NEVER A memorial service will be held at: On Tuesday, November 4, 2008 at 4 p.m. The family will receive condolences an hour before the service. We extend our warm thanks for the excellent care Dad received over the course of his illness to the West Island Palliative Care Residence staff, to his caregiver Sabina, to the CLSC nurses, to the NOVA nurses, and to Dad's long-time physician, Dr. Anne-Marie Dollois.
