Born in Oshawa, and growing up in Chatham, Ron graduated from CCI. He worked for several years with the Royal Bank in Chatham & Barrie, before moving along to International Harvester as a Material Purchaser where he traveled and worked all over. After retirement, him and Nancy enjoyed their winters in Florida where he played a mean game of shuffleboard. Ron was a sports enthusiast, playing baseball, hockey & golf and cheering on his beloved Chicago Blackhawks with a beer in his hand. Ron enjoyed life and being active. He was a true friend, trusted by many and will be reunited with his lifelong friends, Ken Charlton, and Bruce Allison. The three Muskateers will be back together. Ron was a devoted husband to Nancy, visiting with her everyday and ensuring she was well taken care of. A devoted husband, proud father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and even better friend, will be forever missed by all who knew him. 

The family would like to extend their sincerest appreciation to the staff of the LHSC - Critical Care Trauma Centre for their care, compassion and expertise. And to McKinlay Funeral Home for all of their care and love for taking care of one of their own.
