Ron was truly a wonderful human being. His stories will stay with me always. Like when his relative ran one of the locks many years ago and their dog would sense a boat coming and alert the lock master before the boat was in sight. Bill

My sister and I met Ron eight years ago when we came from Calgary to attend my Aunt Shirley's funeral with my Mom , Lee De Blieck (nee Dell). He was such a bright spot to the day and he was obviously a devoted and loving partner to Shirley. I was very sad to hear of his passing, and I offer my deepest condolences to his remaining family.
