  5. My Friend Ron –

    I had the good fortune of meeting Ron almost 30 years ago at one of our meetings. I believe I was around the same age he was when he first came to the program. I also had a family and a fairly decent job that I was hanging onto by a thread. I also had the desire to change.
    Ron was so kind and gracious with me. I will never forget that. And every time we saw each other he would always mention how happy he was for me and how proud he was that I had put my life back on track. I know he did the same for so many others.
    What a tremendous legacy he leaves behind.
    We both shared the love of a great family and the ability to be the kind of parent and grandparent we should be as a result of what the program taught us. Something not many get to experience in this life.
    Noon won’t be the same without seeing my friend Ron at his corner seat.
    Vaya con Dios, my friend.

  6. Jenny.
    Although I did not have the pleasure to meet Ron I know he was a special man in the way you spoke of him and in the way he cared for you. I’m sorry for for the loss and offer our condolences to your family and friends.
    Danny Kingsbury.

  7. He was a beloved member of our family. He will be truly missed by all. Terry , Louis and Hannah.

  8. When I think of Ron King what first comes to mind is the deep compassion that he had for all of life. Whether saving a mother cat with kittens from the roadside or adopting a rescue dog from the pound (several that I know of!), Ron was always in loving service to others. I am especially grateful for the love and devotion he had for my sister Jenny oner these past 26 years and I thank the day that Ron came into our family.
    My heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved him.

    Ron i didnt get to meet you but felt i already knew you through Jenny and how she spoke in kindness of you. My condolences to you Jenny and all Rons family at this time. Wishing you all many blessings of strenght and love.

  10. Ron was one of my mentors in life, met him several yeas back, approximately 26 years ago. We bumped heads, because we were so much alike., but he was like my father,. Ron I respected and we became good solid friends. I respected his occupation, his dedication and his love for animals. He was a loyal, soft, and firm man of dignity and with a no nonsense character. You will BE sadly missed, but never forgotten and thank you Ron for standing tall, and being such a good loving honorable man. Love ya lots

    I’m very grateful to have known Ron and have him as a member of our family. I’ll admit that I was in awe of his career as a firefighter realizing the reach his heroic actions had in the world.
    Always delighted to hear Jenny’s enthusiasm over their latest trip or pet acquisition, they made each other’s lives special and meaningful.
    Ron and I found common ground in his love of music and our shared experiences with musicians in Vancouver and beyond. He was a man that truly appreciated life and all it has to offer. He will be missed by us all.

  13. Jenny, I am so sorry but I will not be able to attend as I am in Hawaii with Jen and Chris. Today is Doug’s birthday. My thoughts are with you and all your family. Ron was a great guy and I was lucky to have met him. Love to all.

  14. Ron was very kind man who shared his experience strength and hope with all.
    I seen him out people at ease with just a smile! A one in a million for sure.
    RIP Ron until I see you in that big meeting in the sky

  15. I think back many years, when Jamie & I spent time with you.
    You are a wonderful man and will be missed by many

  16. On your next journey your loved ones, elders and friends have welcomed you with open arms.

    Farewell my friend, I will see you someday. Know that your guidance, friendship and support made a difference in my life. A fine man you are.

  17. Knowing Ron is to know a friend of compassion, empathy and love for family, friends and animals and to the newly acquainted! There was no nonsense with Ron but a well spoken word of common sense! Ron had a big heart and although Ron, you have touched so many with your unrelentless understanding and compassion none will miss you more than those so close to you! RIP Ron, you truly were a champion!

  18. I met and knew Ron through Terry Cheramy (my long-time friend) and her sister Jenny. It seems like it has always been “Jenny & Ron” Their dedication, love, and loyalty for each other was obvious, as was their mutual love for animals . My favourite “Ron” memory goes back to Terry & Louis’ wedding in the Dominican Republic. It was 2004, and my daughter Devin was almost 4 years old. We all hung out at the pool, and she was in there a lot. Ron decided to call her “Ariel” Well, you couldn’t say something more special to a little girl that age. She has always remembered him for that, it was priceless. Rest in Peace Ron. ** Leisa, Ron, Ethan & Devin **

  19. My condolences to Ron’s family…and Jenny and all the critters… You will be sadly missed, Ron.

  20. Ron you were truly an inspiration to all ! I will miss you my good friend

    RIP Ron

    My condolences to family and friends <3
