It is with heavy hearts and deepest sympathies that we announce the passing of Ronald Dale DeVorkin.

Ron is now at peace and resting with his mother, Josie Hammond, father, Archibald DeVorkin and his brother, Danny. Ron will forever be remembered and loved by his children, Warren, Amie, Katie and Nicholas. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Ryan, Kyah and Emmett, and his close friends and family.

Family will think fondly of their memories of Ron, including kayaking along the East Pine, Nechako and Skeena River, hunting and fishing. Over the course of his life, Ron showed a keen intellect for various types of trade work, working many years as a master glazier. He often used these skills to help others. Family and friends knew Ron as a hard worker with a kind heart that showed endless compassion for his loved ones and those in need.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the following people who were so present and caring in the final years of his life: Emily Thompson, Emily Moliere, Brian Styles, Gene Martell, all of the medical staff at the University Hospital of Northern BC, and the staff at Northern Health Senior Living.

The celebration of life will take place September 10 from 11a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Twisted Cork banquet hall in Prince George. Please RSVP at:

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Baldy Hughes Therapeutic Community & Farm.

“For our memories of you are valued more than the rarest of treasures, our love for you is beyond words and is incapable of measure.”
