At a young age Ron worked at various jobs in the Val Marie area.  Later, with his brother Garry they went to work for Sask Wheat Pool, building and tearing down elevators in Southwest Sask. In 67, 68, 69 he went north with his friend Mike Maffenbeier working seismic. In the summers he  returned to Val Marie and worked for Ivan Reid until moving to Calgary and to work at Hirsch Construction. Ron married Marilyn Grant on Oct. 6, 1973 and they started married life in Calgary, Alta in 1974. Chris was born and in 1975 they moved to Cochrane, Alta.   Nancy was born in 1977. Ron worked for Spray Lakes Sawmill, and later CanRon until they shut the plant down. The family moved back to Val Marie in 1981 where he worked for different farmers and his mother-in-law. He hired on with the company putting in natural gas in southwest as a backhoe operator. They bought the Mervyn Timmons place in 1985; he worked alongside his brother-in-law Marvin for as long as we lived on the flat. He was hired on as machine operator for PFRA where he stayed for 30 yrs retiring in 2015 as the Project Manager. In 2019 Ron & Marilyn bought a house in Swift Current where they resided  until his passing. Ron thoroughly enjoyed "harvest time" of the year and has helped Waldner Farms for many years, hauling grain and other farm related jobs. Ron would never turn down a chance to play a game of cards, especially crib. So after moving to Swift he got to play whist and crib at the library with the seniors and Friday night crib with friends. He met new friends at Coffee Row, meeting twice a day for their coffee chats. Ron has had a chance to sail with his son from Hawaii to Victoria on HMCS Alqonquin. He has travelled twice to Australia to visit his daughter and family. In 2019 he drove from Swift Current to Ottawa and Niagara Falls to visit his son; trips he thoroughly enjoyed.
Ron enjoyed spending time  with his family, camping and attending the weddings, family reunions, and family holidays.
