Ron was a gypsy at heart for many years, travelling all across Canada for both pleasure and work. He had various jobs over the years, mine worker, fishing guide near the Arctic Circle. His final and most rewarding career was as Journeyman RV Technician. This had him working during the summer here in Alberta and vacationing in the US until he met the love of his life Diane. Then he settled down in Lethbridge to help Diane raise her two sons. He worked at Field of RV Dreams till his retirement in 2009 when he was diagnosed with cancer. Special thanks to the St. Michael’s Palliative Care nurses for the wonderful care and attention to Ron and the family in his short stay on the unit. Special thanks and appreciation to Drs.
