It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend Ronald ‘Dick’ Jessome on Wednesday, May 30, 2012.
Ronnie was the son of the late Louis and Muriel (MacDonald) Jessome.
Ronnie was employed with the Cape Breton Development Corporation for 37 years and was also employed as a commissionaire at Marine Atlantic. In his earlier years dad was a coach of little league baseball and minor hockey. His love of sport was clearly displayed as he actively participated in hockey, baseball, darts, bowling, cards and fishing. Dad’s door was always open to friends, especially during Saturday night, “Pit Talk”. He always had time for his children, and the true loves of his life, his grandchildren, Joshua, his only granddaughter Baylee (Bee), Samuel and his special son Faaron. He taught each one of us to throw, to ride a bike, swim, fish, enjoy the outdoors, to have a sense of humour and to be kind and loving to all.
Ronnie is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Marie (Morrison) Jessome; his children, Rhonna, Germany, Paula (Brian), Alder Point, Timmy (Janna), Bras d’Or, and Raylene, Florence. He is also survived by his sisters, Marie Kamermans, Amelia Jessome, Beverly (Frankie) Sampson, Louise (Freeman) Spicer, Lynn (John) McPhee, Joanne (Jerry) Risser, Laurie Jessome; one brother, Terry Jessome; sister-in-law, Agness and also his special friend Owen. Ron will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and friends.
Besides his parents, Ronnie was predeceased by his brother, Joey and brother-in-law, Bill Kamermans along with in-laws Art and Anne Morrison.
Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, Sydney Mines. A celebration of Ronnie’s life will take place Saturday, June 2, 2012, at 1 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Church, Florence, with Fr. Thomas John officiating.
