I live In Abbotsford BC. I was reading in the papers and I seen that Ron had passed away. So very sorry to hear that as Ron had been a good friend of my dad. My dad was George Eldred and he passed away in 1972. We as children just loved Ronny as we always called hem. It has been many years since I had seen him last.
