Very sorry to hear of Ron's passing. I knew Ron for the past 13 years - he was a friend and a loyal customer at Applewood Chevrolet. He would always have a smile or a joke whenever he would come in. Everyone here knew Ron - he was always such a character. He will be missed very much. Rest easy Ron - now you're looking down at all the planes instead of up at them!
Adrian Smith & everyone at Applewood Chevrolet.

Ron, along with all his cousins spent many a happy hour at our grandparents home during Easter, Thanksgiving & Christmas, constantly being told, don't eat too much fudge before dinner!! Our grandmother's fudge was legendary.
Ron, you dealt with health issues from the day you were born. We hope you are resting peacefully now.
Our sympathy to all the family, Eric & Gale Mosher

We had the pleasure of being friends with Ron for the past 6 years. We had many enjoyable visits with him at his place in Innisfil and shared many laughs.
He is now resting peacefully with his beloved parents whom he spoke lovingly about very often. Ron will be dearly missed.
