Ron lived a quiet life and primarily worked in the bush logging, building roads. He bought his first John Deere skidder at 19 years old. He loved the bush and the comradery of the men who worked for him. Many drove trucks from as far as Quebec to up north hauling wood. He sub-jobbed for Ed Wuncsh, Canada Veneers, Police Communications towers.
Ron loved sports and was a "smooth" hockey player and according to the boys on the ice, he had a good reach and a deadly wrist shot. He coached hockey and played baseball with his family in many tournaments and coached the woman's baseball team as well. Fishing was a favourite past time in the summer for both Ron and his wife.
He was also a councillor and a Reeve in Mattawan Township many terms. He loved walking or driving around in the bush where he would see God's wondrous works always.
We are blesses to be born in Mattawa. Residents are wonderful here and beauty is everywhere. God Bless all!
