As a young man, Ron worked as a brick layer and went on to join the army in his early twenties. In 1966, he married Jeannette (Rousselle) and have 2 sons, Dennis and Stephane. In 1970, he and Jeannette, decided to throw caution to the wind and relocated their family across the country to Kamloops, British Columbia, for a fresh start.
Ron worked hard to support his family , as a driller and a commercial painter. Ron’s hobbies included playing the slots at the casino and enjoyed playing crib where he many of his closest friends. During his retirement, he loved to walk to the mall to meet his long time buddy, and play a round or two of Keno.
