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.
Survived by devoted wife Laura (nee Gerber) of Hanover. Loving father of Tony (Jenn) Hergott of Baden, Diane Hergott (Rob) of Milverton, Gary (Lisa) Hergott of Newbrook, Alberta, and Mary (Jamie) Martin of Elmira. Fun loving papa of Mikayla, Jayde, Tehya, Sheldon, Tristan, Colton, Coby (Sara), and Natalie. Fondly remembered by brothers-in-law Wilmer (Marjorie) and Ray (Elizabeth) Gerber, and sisters-in-law Doris (Wayne) Zehr, and Doreen (Rick) Gingerich, as well as many nieces, nephews, and their families. Predeceased by his parents.

Laura, Tony, Diane, Gary, and Mary Beth and family,
Many blessings and heartful hugs for the loss of your wonderful husband and father. My father and Ronnie had a wonderful friendship since 1947 as well as being a cousin. I remember when I was a child and my family was having lunch at Ron's parent's home. Ronnie sat next to me and kept teasing me about eating more limberger cheese. He just wanted my breathe to smell as bad as his did!
Ronnie will be missed very much by all his family.
Hugs and much love, cousins.
Deborah L. Perrin
Ron and I joined the Knights at the same time and we went together
to the 2nd and 3rd degrees. He was a very pleasant man who liked to
laugh. God bless Ron keep up the smiles. You will be missed.
