It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Ron Sampson at Welland Hospital on August 25th, 2017.  Devoted husband and best friend of Karen (nee Fuss).  Loving father of Kelly (Jeff Keighan).  He was a wonderful grandfather to his 2 grandsons, Simon and Max.  Dear brother of Anne (Bill Gunn), Al (Denise), Dave, Pete (Connie), Cathy and Gord.  He will be sadly missed by his nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.  Predeceased by his parents Mike and Anna Sampson and his sister, Joanne.

Ron cherished his family and always put them and their needs much before his own.  He was a simple man who enjoyed the little things in life from feeding the finches in his backyard to gardening, swimming, fishing, golf, anything involving nature or the outdoors.  He enjoyed many road trips and vacations with the love of his life, Karen.  He was a good listener, euchre player and an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan.

In accordance with Ron's wishes, cremation has taken place.  There will be no visitation.  A funeral service will be held at Parish Community of St. Kevin, 303 Niagara St., Welland, Tuesday September 5th, 2017 at 10 a.m.  A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, 383 Morningstar Ave., Welland, following the church service.  As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.  WELLAND FUNERAL HOME 827 East Main Street, Welland were entrusted with the arrangements.
