He volunteered his time driving patients to their cancer treatments in London. was actively involved in Cub Scouts as a Leader, President of the Dow Honours Club, and Ron’s greatest passion was spending time with his family, whether it was sitting at the dinner table laughing and sharing stories, or going to the racetrack with the love of his life, Bea.
