Emilio Ceron

Obituary of Emilio Saul Ceron

Emilio Saul Cerón was born September 19, 1928 in San Pablo, Ecuador. He fell asleep in death on March 12, 2023 at the age of 94 years, in his home surrounded by his family.


In 1963, Emilio was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Quito, Ecuador. Emilio and Digna instilled the truth in their seven children and always guided them spiritually by their example. He served as a faithful elder down to his passing at 94 years of age.


In 1975 he made the decision to move his family to Canada. Eventually settling in Red Deer to enjoy their retirement years. They enjoyed regularly participating in the ministry and loved speaking to those he met about his faith.


Emilio will be remembered for his kind, gentle nature, his quick wit and wonderful sense of humour. He was always the first on the dance floor at get togethers and loved to sing. With his energy, his skillful hands led to many accomplishments. He always put his all into everything he did and his family meant the world to him. We long for the day in the near future, when we can hear his laugh once again, singing and dancing, enjoying life as Jehovah intended and tell him how very much we love and missed him.


Emilio is survived by his beloved wife of 73 years, Digna Cerón; his children Eduardo (Mery) Cerón, Lupe (Pat) Larrett, Elisa (Luis) Ramirez, Gladys (Harry) Schwendemann, Victor (Betty) Ceron and Rebeca (Clint) Buswell; 15 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. He is predeceased by his mother, Zoila Esther Maria Cerón and his son Patricio Cerón


The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude for all the love and support that has been shown during this difficult time. And also thank you to the staff at Points West Living for their loving care.


A memorial service has been held. Condolences to Emilio’s family may be emailed to meaningful@telus.net. Please indicate “Ceron” in the subject line.
