    I will always remember the time I bragged to Ron that I was learning taxes in a course I was taking….he made me do mine while he worked on mom and dads. Then laughed at me because I claimed some farm amount…I was no farmer… Lol I had no clue what I was doing….Ron put me on the spot and had some fun with me. It kept me quiet and busy!! And I was advised not to do taxes professionally!! Haha He will be greatly missed by so many …always had a smile. My thoughts are with the family.

    Dear Arnold, Gwen and Lewis family. Glenn and I had the pleasure to know Ron and Lynda back in the 70’s when we lived across the hall from Arnold and Gwen in Vanier. We had many happy times up at the farm.In 1994 Ron and I made contact when I worked for CRA. we laughed as we remember sitting in the kitchen and chatting.
    Ron had the most beautiful smile and laugh he was a proud father to his girls

    Our wish to each of you is for the pain you feel at this difficult time to be made easier when you recall good memories.
