  • I have known Ron since the 1970s when he moved to Ste Agathe. Started at the old “Riverslide Hotel” then when he built the new one. He was very instrumental in the funding and construction of the Arena in Ste Agathe. Devoted family man and a great supporter of our community in Ste Agathe. Both my wife, Julie, and I have worked for Ron and his family in the early years of his hotel business in Ste Agathe. He will be missed. My wife and I extend our deepest sympathy to Diane and family. - Posted by: Jean St-Onge (Friend and acquaintances ) on: Jun 15, 2019
