    Ron’s obituary indicates that he touched everyone’s hearts that he met and he was loved by all. This is such a factual statement! While I’ve only known Ron for a couple of years, every time we ran into each other he was quick to smile and share a laugh. Awhile ago I entered the lotto pool that Ron started. Like everyone else in the pool, I always hoped we’d hit the jackpot and get lucky. Looking back now I realize that we already had won the riches in just knowing, and be-friending Ron! We all too often take friendships and other relationships for granted and now that Ron is no longer with us, it has opened my eyes to how often I do this. Ron was not only a caring, thoughtful, helpful and all around good guy, he was, and still is, a wonderful teacher. I am grateful to have called Ron my friend and my deepest condolences to Dianne.

We have known Ron since our days camping together while at Marathon Realty in the 80’s. It was always a pleasure meeting him and Dianne over the years especially during Stampede season. His kindness and generosity was unsurpassed. Ron, we will miss “bumping” into you unexpectedly in our area. Our thoughts are with your family. Annette & Garry Padley
