    I met Ron when my Son Cory and Ron became friends. He was a wonderful, well mannered, happy boy. Always a happy smile whenever he came over to play basketball, or hang out with the neighbor boys. A good brother to Inder. Caring, loving and kind young man. Always a pleasure to be around.
    I’m so very very sorry for your enormous loss. I have always thought of him with love and affection. He will truly be missed.
    My condolences to the family, relatives and friends who all have lost a bright beautiful star.!

  • Kerrie & Gary Callioux says:

    Although we only met Ron a few times, we feel we have known him forever. Our son, Ben Callioux, has been good friends with Ron all through High School, and Okanagan College as well. A constant and favourite phrase of Ben’s was “I’m going to Ronnie’s house Mum, don’t know when I’ll be back”. He seemed to spend countless hours at your house watching hockey, football, basketball and I’m not sure what else. I know he will be sadly missed by Ben (and all his other friends as well) and our heartfelt condolences go out to you all. Thanks for being such a good friend to our son Ronnie! We will always be grateful for the time you shared with him. May you rest in peace!

  • Robyn and Mike Griffiths says:

    Our hearts go out to you and your family in your time of sorrow. We hope you can find reassurance in the care of your friends, and allow the loving memories you have of Ron to help you through this time.

  • Akaljot (AJ) Gill says:

    Kulwant Bhaji our deepest condolences. Our prayers are with you, may Waheguru give you strength to deal with this horrible loss and give you courage to let his loving memories into your heart to give you some comfort.
    I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Ron but reading all the messages I can imagine he must have been an great son and wonderful young man.

    Praying for peace and strength for you and the family.

  • Val and Gary Klohn says:

    Dear Raj, Kul and Inder,
    There is still a beat up old hockey stick in our hall closet. Steve was never an athlete but enjoyed it when Ron would come to the door to recruit him for an impromptu game of street hockey. And chatter and laughter with the thump of a basketball was always part of a lazy summer’s evening while Ron and Inder practiced with a couple of friends well into the night. These will always be part of our memories of the past nineteen years living on our street.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Val , Gary and Steven Klohn

  • Muni Ahlers says:

    I found these in my collections.!

  • Amrit Kaur Purewal says:

    My deepest condolences, Waheguru pariwar nu himmat bakshan, Ron di niggi yaad nu dil wich rakhan di taakat.

  • Sujata Randhawa says:

    Sending my deepest and heartfelt condolences may God give you the strength to bear this loss . I am glad Jason got to meet you all too bad he could not be of that much help. Our thoughts and prayers are with you .

  • Steve says:

    Many fond memories of my youth involve playing hockey and goofing around with the other neighborhood kids, Ron included. He was often the initiator of our street hockey games and it was always exciting to have him arrive at the door and tell me hockey was on for that afternoon. During those games he always had a big smile and I believe he really enjoyed bringing everyone together to play.

    I was talking with him a couple years ago while I was visiting my parents – even in the face of his illness he was still the cheerful, upbeat Ron that I remembered from when we were kids. I recall thinking that I was happy he hadn’t lost his trademark smile.

    My deepest sympathies, Ron will be missed though he will not be forgotten. Take care.

  • Jeff says:

    I spent more time with Ron than anyone else for a long period of time and can only hope he’s in a better place now. Ill always be thankful I got to hang with him and share some of the positive memories we had together. He will always be missed and I wish his family the best.
