Ron was born in Brampton, and grew up on the farm in Bolton. He went to Brampton High School, and attended Ryerson. He spent many years in purchasing. He finished his working years buying, and and helping to build Northern Coatings.After retiring, Ron moved to Mount Forest where he became very active in the seniors organizations. He gained many new friends in the four years he lived there. He kept those relationships until the end.

They all took many memorable adventures, and holidays together. He will be sadly missed by his grandchildren, Aven, Jada, Will and Mylo. They all carry special memories of him.
