Upon hearing the news, so many memories of Ron have come to mind. He was a friend, a mentor and a great boss. I've yet to meet a person who comes close to having the positive attitude toward life which Ron showed every day. I'm a better person from knowing him and a fortunate person to have been able to call him my friend.

Heart felt condolences to Dave, Jane, Tim, and Sarah.

Sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. Ron was a great man, who had a positive attitude, always had a smile on his face, always helpful and a great mentor to me, that's how I will always remember him. Also sending my apologies for not being able to attend the funeral service, as I will be out of the country, but I will be thinking of Ron and the family at that time.

Thoughts with you all at this sad time,
Alan Campbell

To Jane, Gordon ... Hannah & Tim ... heartfelt condolences at the passing of Mr. Humphreys. As it happens, I am (Bill) in Windsor, having arrived the afternoon of Mr. Humphreys' passing. I was reluctant to get in touch right away, thinking you'd be busy ... little did I know. Our hope is that you find peace in loving appreciation for a life well-lived. May God's light perpetual shine upon him; may he rest in peace, and rise in glory. Love ... Jane & Bill
