March 16, 1939 – January 18, 2021
Ronald Raymond Wickberg was born March 16, 1939 in Lashburn, Saskatchewan and passed away in Ponoka on January 18, 2021. Ron is survived by his wife Annette; his daughter Marie (Sam) Peters; his son Ronnie (Irma) Wickberg; his grandchildren Cara (Sven) Fiscus, Theresa Peters and Jessie Wickberg; and his great-grandson Evan Fiscus. He is also survived by his identical twin brother Donald and brothers Leonard (Marilyn), Art (Paulette), and Dave (Elsie); and his sisters-in-law Sonia Dobranski, Shirley (Al – his friend and brother-in-law) Janke, and Mary McPhee.
Ron was predeceased by his daughter Susan Wickberg; his mother Virginia and his father Oscar; and brothers-in-law Leonard McPhee and Dave Dobranski.
Ron was proud to work as a rigger for the Boilermakers union for 45 years. He loved family, country music, rodeos, Cadillacs and animals – especially Lucky, the kitten he stopped to rescue on a busy street in Fort McMurray.
He was always lending a helping hand to family, friends and strangers. Ron liked staying at Sylvan Lake in his motor home and made many friends there. Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings, a private family Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 1:30 pm at the Ponoka Funeral Home.
A recording of the service will remain on Ron’s obituary page (www.womboldfuneralhomes.com) for 90 days. The Interment Service took place in the family plot at the Dewberry Cemetery on Thursday, January 21, 2021.
Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta or Old MacDonald Kennels (R.R. 1, Box 12, Site 7, Ponoka, AB T4J 1R1). To express condolences to Ron’s family, please visit womboldfuneralhomes.com
