It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Ronan Grogan. He died suddenly, but peacefully, at his home at Bluewater Beach in Tiny, Ontario on February 8, 2022. He was 73.

Beloved husband of Nancy Heslin (deceased), loving father of Adam Grogan (Kerry) and Danielle Grogan (Alliston). Proud 'Poppa' of Noah, Tomas, Martina and Luna. Dear brother of Shaaron, Paula (deceased), Bernadette (Joe), Brennan (deceased), John (Colleen), Dennis (deceased), cherished friend and former spouse of Dr. Mary Grogan, best friend of Tom Sheedy, and many friends and relatives.

Camper extraordinaire, avid golfer and curler, Olympic Games enthusiast, the guy with the back-up plan, horseshoe champion, past winner of 'The Foxy-McShee', creator of detailed lists, Monopoly railroad buyer, Blue Jays superfan, news junkie, music lover, geography buff, builder of the best bonfires ever, and constant planner of the next trip or adventure,

Ronan was always kind, caring and generous to those he loved and to causes that were dear to his heart. We miss him already.

'May your soul smile in your embrace of your anam cara.'

Ronan loved walking with his grandchildren through the trails at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial donation.
