  • Ron was a sweet and kind man - a bit of a larrikin prone to a good practical joke and greatly loved by his family. I knew him briefly when I dated his son Andy many years ago and remember him fondly. He and Shirley were a wonderful couple and it always seemed to me that there was a great deal of love between them.
    Public - Catherine - Friend - 30 September 2015
