All who were the light of his life and whose lives he enriched with his wit and sincere interest in them.

Ron is predeceased by his niece, Cheyenne.

Although the passing of our beloved father, son, brother, uncle and friend has left a deep rift in our hearts, he has also left us with his most valuable gift, a zest for life and a spirit of adventure.

Hey Ron, I just learned tonight that you are no longer with us and it really hurts to know that you're gone.

You believed in us when no one else did. You were so good to my family you have no idea.

My wife and I are crying because we were so looking forward to seeing you and showing you our progress and to make you proud of choosing us.

We want you to know that you'll be sorely missed, but we know you’re in a better place.

Love the Ramirez Family.

My thoughts go out to the Sekura family. Ron was unlike anyone I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I had first met him at the annual Election garage car auction in Red Deer where he auctioneered at. We bonded over each of our love for classic cars. He always talked fondly about his family, loved to share about his many experiences travelling the world, and also his ongoing business ventures and ideas that he always had on the go. Ron inspired me to live life without hesitation, to take chances and always bet on winning. Everyday was a new adventure, and a gift. He had a soul that was full of character, everywhere he went, he made the people around him smile . He was one of the most authentic people I knew. I truly believe that if everyone lived more like Ron, life itself wouldn’t be taken so seriously and we wouldn’t ever take a single day for granted. I will always carry a piece of him with me, and the next time I “stop to smell the flowers” I will remember him.

Ron was one of my best friends, he was an instructor and mentor for the students at Global College of Auctioneering. He had enough passion and love for life than most people ever could imagine having. Always smiling, always seeing the better side of things, always living life. I will forever miss your friendship and our business will never be the same without your vigor. Rest In Peace my dear friend and just remember you left your mark in so many ways.
