My/our sincere condolences to Gladys and family. I always found time spent with Ron uplifting, he was always such an encouragement to me.
I think one of my best memory of Ron, and it is an event I tell others of regularly was one Saturday many years ago he stopped by my shop in Lethbridge and asked if I could show him the way to a local dairy plant so he could complete a delivery. Ron always had great ideas and was an easy man to say yes to, so I did. We got into his truck and headed out to make the delivery. Ron was chatting and driving and during a break in the conversation I made mention of how clean his truck was, he brushed that comment off by telling me that he had it detailed at a TidyCar shop. A short distance later we turned onto a gravel road that was quite rough and over a particularly tough spot the fire extinguisher in the truck cab triggered and within seconds everything in the cab, including the two occupants were covered in fire extinguisher powder. The laughter from Ron was instantaneously loud. He pulled over and we wiped off the windshield and we tried to make ourselves presentable. We got back into the truck and made our way over to the plant to unload. I tried to make a little more order out of the chaos in the cab while Ron went to deal with his customer and the delivery. He called and asked for some help so I entered the van and together we pushed a massive tote of cream to the center of the truck where it slid off the pallet jack and tipped over, shooting a river of cream to the front of the truck, which in turn flowed out the back door in a wave that covered both of us up to our knees. There was a moment of silence and then Ron started walking to the back of the truck but the sucking sounds his boots made with the cream in them made me laugh hard again, which made him laugh. I was worn out from all the joviality and had to stop and bend over to try and relax enough to catch my breath, that was the exact moment my new phone fell out of my shirt pocket and slid into the pool of cream collecting under the truck.
There was three of us at that point laughing hysterically, Ron, myself and the plant receiver.
The plant manager had walked over to inject a little order in the day, because by that time all sense of urgency had departed.
That single delivery exhausted me more than if I had worked a full day.
Everybody needs a Ron in their lives, I was blessed to have him.
I also have a wedding on the 25th and will regrettably not be able to attend the service for Ron, but that does not stop me from praying for God to bless you with peace and to comfort you through this difficult time. I know I will miss him.

To all RON's family, Ron was from our home town growing up and going to school with him in Fox Valley. He was always a jokster and full of fun and energy. He made many friends along the way, always had time to say HELLO and chat and will be missed at the TIGERS games. RON your journey on earth has come to the end, but your memories will live forever in the hearts that love you. Sorry we are not able to be with your family today but our thoughts are with everyone of you. Jim and Merle Derzaph
