He will be fondly remembered by his friends Harvey Bell, Reno Candido, Alan Orlando, Art Callegari and many more.

In his early years, Ron studied the accordion under Ned Ciaschini and became an accomplished musician. Ron was known as “Mr. B.” for his 40-year teaching career with the Huron Superior Catholic District School Board. He spent 20 of those years at Camp Korah where he shared his love of the outdoors. He touched many students in such a way that they continued to keep in touch with him for years after graduation.

His girls will cherish and miss the memories made with their dad while portaging and adventuring. Although some of the lessons were risky, they always knew they were safe with their dad.
