Condolences to his family

Deepest condolences to all his family, especially Susan and Angie. Thinking of you all. I’m so glad I got to meet him and all of you.

With heartfelt sympathy,

Dear Susan & family
May the angels carry your dear Dad home. So very sorry for your loss. Condolences to all who were dear to him.

Condolences to all Ron’s family at this difficult time, you are in my thoughts and prayers. RIP Ron 🙏

Ron and myself used to have so much fun with our silly banter. He gave the best hugs (to me anyway) Ha I know he suffered in his illness throughout the years, but he is at peace now and no more suffering. He’s playing a tune and winking to the ladies (all in fun) . I hope there’s a scattered game of bingo too. RIP Ron. You will be missed here by your friends and family,. My condolences to you all from myself and Paul and the kids.

Jocelyn , Uncle Pete and all the Hanson families, I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your brother, father, grandfather. Hold your memories close to your hearts and remember all the good times to help u get through these difficult days that are ahead. May he be free of illness , and pain and be at peace and comfort. Fly high with the angels Ron.

Susan and Angie so sorry to hear of your Dads passing and the rest off his family may he R.IP.

Violet,sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. He was a sweet man always spoke us at bingo. May he rest in peace 🙏

Deepest sympathy to all of Ron’s family on his passing. Love from Doug, Judy & Family

May you fly high with the angels . R.I.P. Ron

When Mom ( Anne ) was buried, it was Ron’s sense of humor and his singing that made that first night she was laid to rest , seem a normal phase of life to deal with it. He was telling of a time when he and Pete were digging out a car when a snowplow came by and splattered him. He told it in such a way, that you felt like you were there when it happened. In enabling us to laugh it was as if laughter was remaining us it’s okay for us to go on living. . I am sure he leaves a rich legacy of memories for many. I am truly sorry for your loss..

Deepest condolences to Ron’s family on their loss thinking of all of you God bless
