Ron was a friend who no matter how long it had been since we had seen him, always greeted us like no time had passed. The last couple of years through Covid we hadn't seen him and had lost track of his health issue. We shall miss him!

We are so sorry to learn this morning about Ronnie's passing. He was a dear family friend. I remember after Dad (Bob Colville) passed away that Ronnie said Dad was his best friend. I'm sure Mom would love to see you all. We send our love and prayers. We will certainly miss Ronnie. I can still hear his dear voice and laugh. <3
