Uncle Ron. We will miss your belly laughter and comradarie. I enjoyed the times we spent together building model air plaines from beer cans and all those other crafts you were so good at, too. We also will miss our Christmas phone calls that crossed the distance between our homes. 0 God Bless and hope you can hear better now!
My condolences to the family .
I have good memories of Ron from the time when he lived in the Souris manor.
Always coming for meals to the dining room and his seat was at the head of the table, amongst all the ladies around the table.
Listened to many of his stories while he was knitting away on a little project. Some times when we were short on oven space in the kitchen Ron always offered the one in his apartment.
He sure was the talk of the building at one time when he couldn’t find the brakes in his truck and went juuust a little too far before coming to a stop, right into his livingroom.
Good times to remember!
Our condolences to Barry Barker and sons, and extended family. I attended Hartney school with Barry until he left for the Navy. Ellen was our longtime faithful family friend. Ron & Ellen always helped our mother, Jessie Morden, whenever she needed urgent transportation. Ron was overwhelmed as a care-giver, but always enjoyed his many and varied crafts. I visited Ron in Aug. 2019 at Deloraine PCH, and we ‘talked’ using white board and marker. Always a hearty laugh! Blessings! Bob & Edith ( Morden) Tarbet, Barrhead, AB
