Ronald Douglas Manwaring 1956 - 2022 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather and friend. Ronald Douglas Manwaring passed away on the afternoon of Friday, October 21, 2022 at his home at the age of 65 years. Ron was especially proud of his family and the love he had for them was shown in many beautiful ways. For the past 25 years, Ron owned and operated Magnum Perforating Services; not only did he devote much of his time to his business, but he also made a lot of great friends and acquaintances along the way. An avid golfer, Ron could often be found at the Drayton Valley Golf Course where he spent the majority of his Alberta summer; and in Apache Junction, Arizona during the winter months. In addition to his many loves and pastimes, Ron was a music enthusiast – when you hear a Bruce Springsteen tune, take a moment to remember Ron. Ron will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 38 years, Debra; children, Britny (Lorne) Smith and Justin (Kelsey Bennett); granddaughters, Olivia and Lily; sisters, Barbara (Don) Clarke and Sharon (Ron) Walker; mother-in-law, Barbara Smerychynski and in-laws, Norma (Kim) Boles, Duane (Patty) Smerychynski, Calvin Smerychynski and Steven Smerychynski, as well as by numerous nieces, nephews and life-long friends. Ron is predeceased by his parents, Mona and Henry Manwaring; nephew, Jayson Clarke, father-in-law, Philip Smerychynski and mother-in-law, Doreen Kramer.
