A natural affinity for working with people and some unique life experiences steered Ron Nagel into his role as Family Service Specialist and Celebrant at Speers.
Raised in Englefeld, Ron moved to Regina in 1964. For 36 years he owned and operated Nagel’s Audio Visual, and spent much of his free time serving as a volunteer with community organizations focused on helping people. In 2005, Speers was fortunate to welcome Ron as a Funeral Service Attendant, which involved assisting with funeral service preparations and services. Ron proved to have a natural ability to guide families through a difficult time and consequently, in 2008, he became a Speers Funeral Celebrant. As a celebrant, Ron works one on one with families to create a personalized celebration of life for their loved one.
Ron and his wife, Diane, have two children, two grandchildren and one great-grandson. Ron feels privileged to have the gift of music and has been a polka musician for almost 50 years. His talent has afforded him the opportunity to travel to many parts of Canada and the United States, and to have played with many professional polka musicians. He continues to play locally on occasion. Ron also has been on radio, CJTR 91.3 FM for 11 years as host of a two hour polka music show. His trophy counter has many rewards for wins at the International Accordion Championships. When time allows, Ron entertains at many nursing homes in the area and never passes up an opportunity for a good polka jam session. Ron loves to RV travel, rebuild old accordions and spend time with his family and friends.
Ron is a dedicated Certified Funeral Celebrant and has served over 300 families in this capacity to date. He works one on one with families to prepare and present memorial services. Ron’s attention to detail and calm personality allows families to have respectful personalized services for their loved ones. He is honoured and privileged to be able to help families at one of their most difficult times in life. Ron has been a tremendous addition to Speers, providing warm guidance and welcome support to families in need.
