Ronald Wiseman

Passed away suddenly and peacefully at home on June 4th, 2021.

Predeceased by his parents James and Mildred.

Leaving to mourn with fond and happy memories his brother Robert (Barbara), nephews Terry (Alida), their children Sean, Cole, and Grace; Stephen (Lori), their child Sydney; and Andrea (Tony) Jenkins, their children Ty, Rowan, Reece, and Mason.

His true joys in life were times spent in his flower garden and being in the company of his two feline friends Carter and Dan.

So sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. Our paths haven’t crossed in many years but we were friends while growing up.
His backyard backed onto my parent’s garden. Ron was very generous with his gardening advise to mom when she lived there. In fact, some of his plants migrated to her garden.

So Sorry to hear of Ron’s Passing.. I pray “God Rest His Soul.” We attended the same High School in St. John’s. We were good friends.. I also had fellowship with Ron and his mother, Mildred. I pray the Lord bless Ron’s family..

Oh my dear friend Ron. I shall miss you terribly. I am truly shocked to hear of Ron’s passing. We were good friends while working at MUN, seeing each other every day and sharing our woes and our joys. Outside of work we met and continued our friendship but I hadn’t seen or heard from Ron for the past year and having no cantact with MUN people, I did not know he was ill. I’m so very sad and can only blame myself for letting too much time pass since our last chat. May you soar among the Angels, my dear friend; I will miss you terribly for the rest of my days.

Sorry to hear the passing away of Mr. Ron Wiseman..I was working with him very closely for all my audio-visuals (as well as in other responsibilities) as long as I was at MUN (before my retirement at 2005). He was such a gem of a person, who always obliged us when we needed his help. Sad to see him passing away. The Lord be with the family members and comfort them.
