Ron was very proud of the fact that he was a cook and had the privilege of preparing meals for Pope John Paul II, Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson and members of the British Royal Family. An avid outdoorsman, Ron enjoyed four wheeling, moose hunting and fishing. He enjoyed making Christmas crafts and drawing. He was a big fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He loved to go to the rink and watch his sons play hockey in the winter and baseball in summer. One of his favorite things was to entertain people with his stories and jokes, on Saturdays, while he was preparing a good scoff for them.
Ron is survived by his loving, devoted wife and best friend Michelle (Prince), his sons who were very precious to him, Matthew (Bubs) and Max, and his two beautiful daughters, Melissa (Pete) and Keisha.
