Ron had many long-time friendships that were created during his years as an instructor with BC Transit, Vancouver. Ron enjoyed the relaxed lifestyle of the area and after his retirement (1997) made Sheridan Lake his home along with his dog “Sue”! Ron died in Kelowna shortly after being diagnosed with lung cancer.
