Sikkema, Ron

Ron Sikkema passed away on Friday, November 6, 2020 at the age of 55. He courageously battled lymphoma and melanoma. Ron is the beloved husband of Christine (nee Kaemingh) Sikkema and loving father of Justin, Tyler, Ben, and Luke Sikkema.

He received his Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Manitoba at the age of 22 and devoted his career to Procter & Gamble for 33 years. He worked in Canada, Geneva, Switzerland and in the United States. Ron loved his wife of 28 years, four precious sons and entire family very much. He was a much loved “Uncle Ron.” He enjoyed the outdoors, hiking and walking. He loved to read and converse about meaningful topics. Ron especially loved to be at “the lake” in Canada. He was committed to his church life and small group, believing in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.
