    I was shocked and saddened to read of Ron’s passing in the Leader Post this morning. I worked closely with Ron when he was the Farm Manager at Pedde Farms at Indian Head. I spent more time with Ron and know that farm better than any other customer that I worked with. I always enjoyed my time with Ron and I know he will be missed greatly. My condolences to the entire family.
