    Maureen, Scott & Brad, We are so sorry for your loss. We saw Ron’s obituary in the paper. Barb had let me know that he was terminal but I guess I didn’t realize how quickly his time would pass. We are thinking of you three and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you in the coming months.
    So sad for your loss, Sue and Daryl

    Maureen,
    It has been so many years since we’ve seen each other, yet I was shocked to hear of Ron’s death. Hard to believe that so many years have passed, but somehow it seems like yesterday that we were all in university. Sorry to hear your sad news. I’ll be thinking of you as you and your sons go through this difficult time. If ever in Ontario, please don’t hesitate to come and visit.

    Dear Mo, Scott, Brad & Family. All of you are in our prayers and thoughts at this time. Ron was a dear friend and I’m certainly going to miss him and our “sports” chats. Especially our heated discussions about our poor Maple Leafs. (Maybe this year buddy) I also want “his boys” to know that he loved you both so much. Whenever I asked him how the boys were, he would always tell me a recent tale about you two, with a slight grin on his face and twinkle in his eye. He’s now at peace, continue to make him proud boys.

    Dear Aunt Marion, Jim, Leslie, Bob, Teddy, Joanne, Don, Maureen, Brad, & Scott & families, The Lively family has lost one terrific, fun, talented man with the death of Ron at far too young an age.

  27. Maureen, so sad to hear about Ron. I had the privilege of working along side Ron at Lipton and then Unilever. His knowledge of the industry was unparrelled and it’s no surpirse the respect he gained from his customers and colleagues was first class. However what I will remember the most is the hallway conversations about sports and how proud he was of Brad and Scott’s accomplishments. He always had a huge smile on his face during these conversations! You, Brad and Scott will be in our prayers.

  28. Dear Maureen and family,
    I was so sad to hear of Ron’s passing. I met Ron as a team mate with the Brewers in Midnapore slow pitch. I will remember Ron as a true gentlemen and friend. Taken from us far too soon.

    So many times I think back to the days when family gatherings at Grandma and Grandpa Hobson’s boxing day event and all the fun games we played. Ron was always the fun one, always smiling. I will remember him always just like that. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  32. Keitha Peterson :

    I’m so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. Although we only met in person once, I spoke with him many times on the phone through our work at Lipton/Unilever, and truly enjoyed our conversations. Who he was – a truly fine person – came through loud and clear. He seemed to have many passions – for his family, hockey, cooking – so he was a lucky man for the time that he was here. May you find strength and inspiration from your memories of him.
