Ron enjoyed hunting, trapping and ice fishing. He was not one to venture too far from home, but he loved when his family and friends would come to visit, have a cup of tea, and tell stories. He also enjoyed spending time in his garden, feeding his birds, pet crows and squirrels.
Ron grew such a love for his special little girls/dogs (Mindy, Sassy, and Molly) – they were his world. His favorite saying about them was “They have so much love!”
