We are heart broken to hear that Ron is no longer with us. Ron was a very kind and gentle man and we are so glad that we got to meet him on our cruise across the Atlantic a few years ago. Fond memories of him taking us in his boat fishing and most of all the many card games, especially the one called 99's. What fun we had!!

We send you our deepest sympathy and may God give you the strength to face each and every tomorrow.
Rest In Peace Ron!

Love

To: Yvonne, Morgan, Susan, Christopher, Doris, Norma, Brian, Glenn, Larry, Wylie, Darlene, Gladys and all the Gidge Relatives

We were truly shocked and saddened to learn of Ron's passing. We spent so many good family times together: in Toronto, in Brampton, in Barrie, up north at the cottage and at home in Fairbanks and Summerford. We always had so many good memories to talk about, to brag about and to laugh about.

We spent so many hours chatting, singing and dancing around the campfires. And we spent so much time talking about, and discussing issues around politics, travels, views on life and how we figured things could be better, here in Canada, and around the world. There was never a time when we did not have a topic to delve into. We did not always agree on the solutions, but we always agreed to discuss the issues and agreed to agree, or disagree, as we saw fit.

We know, in recent years, Ron had some health issues, but he seemed to take it all in stride. He did not let those setbacks keep him from traveling to visit family in Ontario, or keep him from visiting new places in South America, the Caribbean or Europe. He took lots of pictures, he met new friends and he had a lot of new stories to relate when he came back home.

We will certainly miss you, Ron, at all those special gatherings with family and friends.

We know you are now free from pain. You are with Wendy, Mildred, Calvin, Delores and your Mother and Father. Ron, you are about to have a new family reunion, in Heaven, and your family cannot wait to welcome you there to begin discussions on topics in your new adventure.

We are sorry we cannot be with Family Members at this time, but be assured our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

God Bless!

My heart was broken when I found out about Uncle Ron’s passing. I have many fond memories of spending time with both him and Aunt Wendy, especially lunch hours when I used to work at the Credit Union. Always a great conversationalist and very intelligent, I will miss our chats! Uncle Ron, may you Rest In Peace and enjoy your reunion with Aunt Wendy!
Wish I could be there to say my goodbyes in person but due to sickness I cannot. Please know my thoughts and prayers are there with you all today!
