It is with great sadness to learn of the passing of my Uncle Ronald, who I only had the pleasure of meeting once with Hilda, Randy and Brenda, at Frank's house in Calgary
I believe this was in the early 1980’s with my ex wife, Hazel and son, Kevin. Ronald was forever in my mind as he looked so like my Father, Duncan.
We send our condolences and our thoughts are with you all at this difficult time... from my mother, Irene Anton 93 years of age,
Jean(Lockie), Mike Anton, Carol (Seabright) and myself, Norman Anton.
Take care and love to you all.
Sincere condolences to Ronald’s entire family, may he rest in peace.
Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. The Corr Family, Ireland
