Ron joined the Math Department at St. Lawrence College in Kingston after retiring from the R.C.A.F. He taught at St. Lawrence until he retired in 1998, a year after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Ron was dedicated to the United Church, the NDP, union activities, the Kingston Y Service Club, travel (he saw much of the world), jazz music, camping, the cabin he designed and built near Charleston Lake, gardening, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, creating Celtic knotwork, and exploring genealogy. Ron faced Parkinson's with great determination and humbleness. His humour, humanity, and energy will be missed. He is survived by his wife Mary Alice, three children, and nine grandchildren. Donations may be made in Ron's memory to the Parkinson's Foundation or Crossroads United Church.
