We are very grateful for the care he received from the staff of Pleasant View Towers 1 South East, who treated Ron like a member of their own family. Their care and compassion went above and beyond the call of duty and was a great comfort to us, especially in this last week.
Ron enjoyed a long career in the healthcare sector as a social worker and counsellor and spent his time volunteering with a number of different committees. He loved spending time hiking in the outdoors, but most of all, his favourite pastime was watching TV with a cat in his lap.
Cremation has taken place. Due to public health restrictions, a funeral service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ron’s memory may be made to the SPCA or the Gathering Place. To send a message of condolence, please visit www.carnells.com.
