His beloved cat Willis will also miss him dearly. Ron was predeceased by a son in infancy sisters Grace and Arlene and brother James Ron traveled and worked all across Canada. He was a hard worker, there was nothing that he couldn't do. Ron was the "go to" guy for everyone in the community for most of his adult life. If anyone needed a hand with something, Ron was the first one there to help out. He frequently made furniture and donated it to community fundraisers. Ron was always a cowboy, horseman, animal whisperer extraordinaire. He loved life and lived it on his own terms. He loved his family and was very proud of all of them. He could be heard on any given day bragging over the accomplishments of his grandchildren. Ron loved going to the dances and was particularly fond of a song with a good beat. A familiar sight at the Walton dances was Ron doing "the Wheaton Stomp" around the dance floor, letting loose with a good "ai yee" in time to the music. There is a huge hole in our lives now, but we will all be together again When we Get to Where We're Going. Love you so much, will miss you forever.
