Funeral Details: A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date

Passed away peacefully at Coleman Care Centre on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at the age of 89.  Beloved husband and best friend to Jan for 30 years.  Proud father of Gary (Laura), Sherry (Jeff), and Michael.  Dear grandfather of Holly, Collin, and great-grandfather of Nova.  Loving brother of David (Marlene), Wayne (Shirley) and Paul (Chris).  He will be fondly remembered and missed by many nieces and nephews, as well as Jan’s family.


Ron cherished special memories at the family cottage near Parry Sound.  He and his wife enjoyed travelling to Mexico for many winters until he could no longer make the journey.  A passionate hockey fan, he loved rooting for his favourite teams, and for ten years held season tickets for the Barrie Colts.  After selling the cottage, Ron and his wife enjoyed life in Sandycove Acres, Innisfil, as well as their interest in the antique business.


A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  Online memories and condolences may be shared at www.peacefultransition.ca.


Ron will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

    Rest in peace Dad. We miss and treasure every memory of you. We learned so much from Dad growing up. A love of nature, kindness to others, and a great sense of humour. You’ve always been there for us throughout our lives and we are so grateful to have had such a great Dad.
    We love you Dad forever!

    Sherry & Jeff, Gary & Laura

    Dan and I remember many good times with Ron.
    One of our best surprises was running into Ron and Jan in Puerto Vallarta at the Marival.
    Our condolences go out to all the family.
    RIP Ron
