Ron Hergott Obituary
It is with heavy hearts, the family announces the loss of Ronald Willard Hergott of Hanover. He passed away peacefully at his home on Marl Lake, on Thursday, May 5, 2022, at the age of 75.
Born on March 29, 1947 in Kitchener, Ontario, to the late Willard and Clara (nee Mosburger) Hergott. Ron was a man of many talents, and a man that lived life to the fullest, enjoying every moment he could. He saw many miles of roads during his long career as a truck driver, and enjoyed the many places he got to visit, and the people he got to know. After his retirement, he also enjoyed the rewarding experience continuing in transport services while working for Saugeen Mobility. He was a dedicated man of his faith, and served many years as a Knight with the Knights of Columbus, earning 3rd Degree status. Ron was also very generous with his time, always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. But no matter what, the most important thing to Ron from the start to the very end of his life, was his family. He was very proud of his 4 children, and his many grandchildren, and loved spending any time he could with those he loved. He will be dearly missed by many people.
