Obituary of Ronald Poan

Please share a memory of Ronald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Poan, Ronald Sidney – 75 of Riverside, passed away on Thursday, December 8th, 2022, at his home in Riverside. Born in Halifax on July 17th, 1947, he was the son of the late John and Marie Florance (Edwards) Poan. Ronald was a carpenter by trade and in later years enjoyed apple picking with his family. He was a master wheeler & dealer; collecting various items over the years that he would always turn a profit on reselling to others. Ronald’s modo was “everything was worth something to someone”. He would later pass these skills down to his children and grandchildren. When Ronald wasn’t buying and selling collectables, he enjoyed golf, fishing, hunting, camping, water or snowball fights, visiting the wildlife park, bingo, playing his favorite online casino game Rock N Cash Casino, remote control planes and spending time with his family. Ronald was a great storyteller; he captivated his audience with his quick wit and a voice that emulated an auctioneer. He will be deeply missed by family, friends and all who knew him. Ronald is survived by daughters Rhonda Poan, Angela Poan (Kevin Brown), Jennie (Justin) Ward, Kimberly (Craig) Courdeau, sons Ronnie (Patricia) Poan, John (Michelle) Poan, grandchildren; Candice, Jonathan, Katie, Amanda (John), Matthew (Ashley), Margaret, Andrew (Crystal), Micheal (Makayla), Cavell, Melissa, David, Joseph, Spencer, Jessica, Sebastian, Austin, Craig Jr, Timmy Lee, Jasmine, Justina, greatgrandchildren; Mikaila, Zachary, Kaileigh, Brianna, Savanna, Nevaeh, Zander, Alayna, Maddix, Angel, Damon, Lily, Noah, Kenzie, Isiah, Holden, Anyiah, Freya, Dawson and Jillian, sister; Colleen Hardney. Besides his parents, Ronald is predeceased by wife Gloria Poan, sisters Barbara Crosbie and Astraid Watermaker. Respecting Ronald’s wishes there will be a private family Memorial Service held at a later date. Donations in memory of Ronald can be made to a charity of one’s choosing. Arrangements have been entrusted to the compassionate care of the JW Allen Funeral Home, Hwy 215 Summerville (Phone 902-633-2431).
