Ron is survived by his partner and loving wife of 35 years Beverly; his children Dave (late Colleen), Robert (Francine) and Kenneth (Barbara). Proud "O" Poppa to grandchildren Matthew, Shelly, Griffin, Steven, Daniel and Madison and his 7 great-grandchildren Kaleb, Ethan, Myla, Brecken, Finn, Poppy and Mauve.
Ron served as a member of the Canadian Forces from 1951 - 1982 five years with the Navy and then the Royal Canadian Air Force until retirement. Ron was very active in sports, playing football, hockey, curling, and excelled at bowling with the Sgt's & WO's Mess League.
The Lac Bitobi cottage was Ron's happy place as was wintering in Bucerias, Mexico. He will be missed by many friends at these locales.
