Condolence: The Karas & Giffin families wish to send our condolences to Ron's family & siblings on behalf of his deceased cousins Aileen, Olliver,& Cyril (children of Laurie & Dot Giffin). Growing up we all heard or knew of Uncle Reg, Aunt Lily and their family. Unfortunately over the years as families often do, contact became minimal. We know that each of them would want us to reach out with our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Condolence: Patricia and family,
I was saddened to hear of Ron's passing. We were both members of the elected "Class of 78" and served together for fifteen years.
During that time, we sat together at the Cabinet table many times. I always enjoyed our conversations, especially our somewhat enlightened critiques of what was transpiring at that particular time.
Ron was a man of integrity, committed to the service of his constituency and our province. He also had a great sense of humour and we shared many laughs together.
May prayer, the comfort of family and friends and fond memories help you and your family through this most difficult of times.
Condolence: I was very sad to read of Ron's passing. It was a pleasure for me to work as Executive Director in the Attorney General's Department with Ron. He was a kind, efficient and considerate Attorney General and most of all a very fine gentleman. He always treated everybody with respect and dignity. I have very fond memories of our time working together.
Condolence: Kate and I wish to express our sympathy to the family at this time of sorrow. Ron was a great friend and helpful to me and other members of the caucus. Always with good advice for the newer members.
Ron was blessed with an infectious sense of humour, I can still smile when I remember his great laugh .
A true friend to all of us .
Condolence: My sympathy goes to Patricia and all of Ron's family. I enjoyed talking to him as a reporter and always found him honest and helpful with his answers to my questions. To me he was one of the politicians I could count on.
I was saddened to learn of Ron's passing and ask that the family kindly accept my condolences. I enjoyed the friendship of Ron and you Claude growing up as teenagers in Windsor. I was pleased to note how professionally successful Ron was and a great community participant.
Condolence: Oh, Pat. I am so sorry that you have lost my mate Ron. I remember especially his wide grin and wonderful laugh. Jan remembers well teaching his and your talented kids at TJH.
Hugs (from a distance). Paul & Jan
