While attending school he helped his parents on the family farm. He started his employment with Co-operators Insurance in Regina then worked at McGavins Bakery. Ron decided to open his own business at Buns Master Bakery in Moose Jaw. Later he sold his business and worked for CAA until his retirement. He purchased a farm in Killaly. Ron enjoyed socializing, travelling, collecting antiques, entertaining, meeting people and anything with a western theme (songs, attire, pictures, etc) and never missed family events. This is when he decided to make his dream come true and opened his own business called Horse Shoe Saloon. This was Ron’s pride and joy, all the articles he purchased were displayed at the Saloon. He continued with the Saloon until his health failed and he entered his eternal rest on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at St. Paul Lutheran Home in Melville at the age of 68 years.
