Ronald Morley Hoare Obituary

With sadness, the family of Ronald Morley Hoare, 92 of Valley, Colchester County announces his passing on October 27, 2023, in the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow.


Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, March 26, 1931, Ron was the eldest son of the late Banford and Luella (Gibbons) Hoare. The family returned to East Mountain, Nova Scotia in 1934 where Ron developed his love of horses as he worked and drove them on the family farm. Prior to, and after retirement, Ron was successful at breeding and raising many Standardbred horses with all the “Extras.”


Hired on at the Canadian National Railroad at the age of nineteen, he retired in 1987 after 36 ½ years of service. He enjoyed the many years spent as a Trainman, Yardmaster and retired as a Conductor. Ronnie was also a local representative for the United Transportation Union (UTU) travelling and making friends while conducting union business.


Survived by daughter, Rhonda McCarron (Ian), Antigonish; granddaughter, Jaime Grant Weeks (Blair) and great grandchildren, Adelle, Nash Morley, and Tuftin, of Pleasant Valley, PEI. Also survived by brother, Kenneth Oar, of Tennessee and several nieces and nephews.


Besides his parents, Ron was predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Verna (Pyke) (2022). Also predeceased by sister, Ardith Marsters; brother, Keith; brothers-in-law, George Pyke, Ashley Marsters, Donald Pyke; sisters-in-law, Marlene Oar, Lillian Pyke, Norma Pyke and Leona Hoare; nephews, Barry Hoare and Eric Pyke, and nieces, Sarah Oar and Dianne Pyke.


Special thanks to nephew, Douglas Pyke, Truro, and “cousin,” Mildred Underhill, Moncton, for their compassion. Thanks also to friends, Faye and Alfred, Carol, Michelle and Allan whose visits, calls and texts made Dad’s last months much brighter. Thank you to VON Truro and Glen Haven Manor and Aberdeen Hospital staff, New Glasgow for their attention and kindness.
