In Loving Memory ~
Born 1952 Nanaimo, BC.
Died Sept 28, 2022 Cranbrook, BC.
We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Ryon following a long fight with Alzheimer’s disease.
Ryon enjoyed an accomplished career as a newspaper editor, most notably for the Vancouver Province, Nelson Daily News, and Castlegar News.
He was at his happiest smirking at his own jokes, interjecting trivia into conversations, and puttering around the family farm on Salt Spring Island, where he and his wife Judy raised three children: Travis (Sandy), Margot (Rob) and Roger (Rae-Anne).
Ryon was preceded in death by his eldest son, Travis.
Following their retirement, Ryon and Judy moved to Cranbrook, BC, to be nearer to their youngest son.
He is survived by his beloved wife Judy Guedes (née Valdez) and the family they loved so much. His daughter Margot (Robert) Knight, and their daughters Mia, Anika and Autumn. His son Roger (Rae-Anne) Guedes, and their sons Gene, Lukas, William and Sawyer.
His widowed daughter-in-law Sandy Guedes (now Buckley) and their children, Jupiter and Haylee. His sister Cathie (Philip) Herbert, and his brother Doug (Cheryl) Guedes.
The Guedes family wishes to thank the staff of the FW Green Memorial Home for their kind and compassionate care of Ryon.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 15th in Cranbrook. Please contact Roger Guedes for details at 250-421-8313.
