Ron married his high school sweetheart Marjorie Lynds in 1950. Together they raised a family of four and remained in Altamont. His occupations included trucking, farming and employment with MB Crop Insurance. He was a board member for St. Leon Co-op for many years.
After the passing of his first wife in 1992, Ron was fortunate to reconnect with a friend who became the second love of his life. Ron and Donna Godard were married in 1996 while on a winter getaway in Texas and settled together in Carman, MB. Ron’s family grew, as he became a loving step-dad and grandpa to Donna’s three girls and their families.
Ron enjoyed many camping trips and travels including trips to Alaska, the Yukon, Vancouver Island, and US destinations. He and Donna especially enjoyed experiencing Australia and New Zealand.
Ron was a good natured, loving and honest man with a ready smile or chuckle and always a story to tell. He loved his family which was evident in his words and actions.
Ron was predeceased by his parents Katie and Gordon, brother Bruce, and first wife Marjorie. He is lovingly remembered by wife Donna.
