Ron was a hard worker and could turn his hand to many skills (mechanics, carpentry, electrical to name a few); Jack of all trades. He never shyed away from any task.
Ron loved his family and loved life...he loved living.
Always content wherever he went...always a smile on his face and rolling his thumbs when hands where clasped...his signature move.
From his children; Thank you dad for everything... You have had a profound impact on our lives and we love you dearly...and will miss you greatly...until we meet again.
The family have chosen a cremation.
A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
A Memorial Tree was planted for Ronald
