My sincere condolences to Leith, Rick, Marni, John, Peter and Alison and their families.
My first memory...Ron gave Marni a call from his brand new Cadillac car Bag phone while on a business trip to Ottawa, this was 1984? I was incredibly impressed!
He generously invited me (the nursing student and very new roommate of Marni) to dinner with Marni, we enjoyed a fine steak dinner with real Grown up wine and many laughs.
Ron knew no strangers!

Ron also had the most pristine pool in all of Meadowvale village
He was always smiling with his eyes.

As we all know, Ron was a generous welcoming man with an incredible family
Ron’s memory is a blessing to all who knew him
I’m so very sorry
Love Nancy
