Ronald Theodore Volk Age 94, formerly of Goshen and Eight Island Lake, Guysborough County. Dad died peacefully in his sleep Wednesday, March 15, 2023 in The Birches Long Term Care Residence, Musquodoboit Harbour. Born in Parkhill, Ontario; Dad moved to Halifax when he joined the Navy as an Aviation Technician. He continued his keen interest in aviation after leaving the service. The family later moved to Lorne where he took up farming and from there enjoyed a variety of other occupations. He married Edie in 1982 and settled in Goshen. He thoroughly enjoyed attending flea markets - always selling, more often buying! In recent years, he took up woodworking and crafting metal silhouettes.
