I am very sorry for the family's loss. I had the privilege of working with Ron for many years and countless hours as we ventured out into the Saskatoon community. He truly cared for and was committed to building the capacity and enhancing the well being of community groups and the people they served. I will forever remember a kind, thoughtful, generous and respectful man who always seemed to have everyones best interests at heart.
I fondly remember with a smile, Ron's sense of humour, and the laugh, chuckles and giggles that were heard frequently by all that knew him. He will be truly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry to hear of Ron's passing.  Ron was the Regional Director in Prince Albert when I worked there.  He truly was a good man and well respected within the organization and by the staff. He was known for being fair and considerate in any decisions he made. It felt good to be in his presence. I also remember his infectious laugh, or giggle, whatever, often at my expense on the golf course.  Many fond memories. So, not only a great boss but a good friend and I am fortunate to have known him. Our condolences to Shannon and the family. We have you in our thoughts.

Ron hired me for my first social worker position with DNS in Uranium City. He was the best ‘first boss‘ I had. Very supportive and a bit of a trickster! I worked with him throughout our careers. Blessed be his spirit! My condolences to Shannon and family.

My sincerest condolences to Shannon and family on Ron's passing. I worked with Ron for many years at Social Services in Saskatoon. He was the Regional Director, and my immediate boss as I worked as the manager at Income Security until we both retired. He was competent, caring, compassionate, and able to work in a bureaucratic system keeping a balance between client needs and the needs of the organization, which were sometimes at odds. He was able to get along with those he worked with both in the political system and the civil service, and was a rare individual. He will be missed.

Ron hired Kevin 1999 to work in the Saskatoon Office. I left the Alberta Government after 17 years to move to Saskatoon. When he interviewed me I knew I wanted to work for him. I learned so many things from him. He was patient, kind, caring, great at engaging all kinds of people. He had an amazing sense of humour and an infectious laugh. He knew our business well and was the consumant profession public servant. He was a mentor and a friend. I will always remember him with fondness. My condolences to his family and friends. I know he will be sorely missed.

Sonny was my best friend growing up on the farm outside Shackleton. We were 'good trouble'. Friends don't let friends do stupid things....alone!

In 2012 we renewed our friendship in Arizona and have been able to spend a number of times together ever since. We will miss him.
