He loved his work and loved his patients and that kept him going these many years.
Ron was involved with various clubs and organizations throughout his lifetime. He served on many boards and executives through which he made many lifelong friends. He was very active in the Prayer Community of Southern Alberta, hosting workshops for the Charismatic Gifts of the Holy Spirit and working in the areas of Inner Healing.
