Ron Creusot was born in Radville, SK, on July 29, 1946, the second youngest child of Jean and Melvina Creusot. He grew up in Radville with his five siblings. He enjoyed sports, playing hockey and baseball. When he graduated, he worked as a mechanic and drove school bus. He played with the Ceylon Angels baseball team and created many lasting friendships. In 1967, he bought the Imperial Oil agency in Ceylon, where he worked for many years before heading off to Alberta. He found work at Wood Cogger in Edmonton and bought a house in Bon Accord. He continued to play men's league baseball and hockey and started coaching softball as well. In 1978, he and three friends started KERR Interior Systems Ltd. The company grew through the boom of the 70's and continued growing despite the recession in the 80's due to their dedication and commitment. In 1997 he moved back to Saskatchewan and started his own company, RC Contracting. He enjoyed helping out at the Pflanzner farms and could often be seen driving grain truck during harvest. This is where he met his wife Margaret in 1998 and they married in 2001. Over the last few years they enjoyed traveling, visiting Cuba, Maui, Hawaii, Mexico, and Uma. Most recently they have spent their winters in Mesa with friends.
Ron was a man of quiet strength, full of compassion and very loyal. He was hardworking, a man of few words but was often quoted as saying, "if you are going to do it, do it right the first time."
Ron enjoyed his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, attending their various sporting events and weddings. He was quick to smile and teased them frequently.
He will be deeply missed and forever remembered.
Due to ongoing Covid Pandemic concerns, there will be no public service at this time.
A Celebration of Ron's Life will be held at a later date with service details to be announced when finalized.
