Ron was the beloved husband of Diane (nee Clarke), father of Jeffrey (Jennifer) and Gregory, and proud grandfather of Ethan. He will be lovingly remembered by his younger brother, Clare (late Karen), and sister, Diane, as well as his niece Christine Kok (Jonathan), and his nephew David (Missy), along with great nephew and nieces Kalan, Calinda, Lily, and Ivy.
Ron is predeceased by his parents Gordon Richard , Marie Lucinda (Dubrick) , and sister-in-law Karen (nee Harding) .
Amongst many dear family friends, Ron will be remembered by his Oldtimers baseball team, The No Stars, as their homerun hitting champion, and the Oldtimers hockey guys will remember him as a long-serving team captain and regular at the post-game celebrations. Ron loved his sports outings and wanted nothing more than to “just get out”. Whether it was a theatre play, a movie or just a drink at Moose Winooski’s, he was always after a better time. But nothing pleased him more than taking his wife out on the dance floor for a spin. With our sincerest, deepest love we commemorate Ron’s life here and wish his soul sweet peace and solace in whatever awaits him. All our love…
A memorial reception will be held for family and friends at the Dedication Center at Williamsburg-Kitchener Cemeteries, located at 1541 Fischer Hallman Road, Kitchener, Ontario on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 1pm-4pm. Ball Shirts, Hockey Jerseys, and shorts encouraged.
