  • Ron has been a dear family friend for decades. He always had a wonderful sense of humour, a twinkle in his eyes and a ready hug. We spent many enjoyable days together at the cottage and visiting one another in our homes. He was generous, kind, gentle and very sociable. He was like a grandpa to our children as they were growing up and had a way of talking with them that made them feel loved and special. I will miss you Ron-you and Betty have been blessing to our family. - Posted by: Grace Jr. (Friend) on: Feb 05, 2020
