On Saturday February 5, 2022, at Villa Providence in Shediac, Ronald "Ronnie" Melanson passed away peacefully at the age of 86. Born in Saint-Paul-de-Kent, NB, he was the son of the late Alphée and Bella (LeBlanc) Melanson. 

He made a life as a business owner in New Jersey, USA and then again as owner of Ron’s Shell Gas Station on Shediac Road in Moncton, NB, until his retirement. 

Ronald is survived by one brother, Jean-Marie (Anna) of Shediac Bridge; one sister, Lorraine Maillet of Moncton. Ronnie and his wife, of over 50 years, have many nieces and nephews for whom Ronald was endearingly known as "Uncle Ronnie" or "M’oncle Ronald". 

Besides his parents, Ronald was predeceased by his wife, Marie (Roy) Melanson; two brothers: Aldéric (as an infant) and Léonide; one sister, Annette (Melanson) Cormier. 

The funeral mass will be celebrated at the Saint-Paul R. C. Church, 6476 route 515, Saint-Paul-de-Kent, on Tuesday May 17, 2022, at 11 pm. The family requests that everyone wear a mask. The interment will be at Saint-Paul-de-Kent cemetery in Saint-Paul. In lieu of cards and flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.

Cremation and funeral arrangements are in the professional care of the Frenette Funeral and Cremation Center, Shediac (532-3297).
