Ron leaves behind his true love, best friend and wife, Joan (née Lowry). He was a loving father to Cindy Armstrong, Chris Armstrong (Shelley) and Billy Armstrong (Sarah) and the best step dad in the world to Allan Giles (Trudy Wright), Cynthia Giles Nichols (Steve O’Keefe) and Brian Giles (Kristy). His grandchildren, Ben, Josie, Taylor, Brett, Marcie, Murray, Alyson, Erin, Haley and Warner will love and miss him forever.
