After retirement Ron developed his hobby of woodworking. He was also kept busy fixing anything and everything that we broke as well as maintaining their cottage where they spent their summers for 50 years. He enjoyed the time he spent volunteering along side of Gladys for Meals on Wheels and never hesitated to lend a hand when Gladys was organizing the church bail to be sent to Keewatin. Being an avid fan of baseball and hockey he tried never to miss watching a game.
Ron along with his kind nature will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
