May God be with you Uncle Ron. I will always remember staying over night at your house and you putting up with my sensitivity. Also, you saying to me when I woke up and my hair was all a mess, “Janny, Jan, Jan with the hair all over your head.”. I remember your love of cars and you checking out everyone’s cars at the get togethers. Thank you for being my adoptive godfather and a wonderful uncle, love Janet Kostran

I will always remember my Uncle Ron as a kind and gentle person. Family gatherings for most major holidays seemed to always end up being at my Aunt Janet and Uncle Ron’s house. He was always so welcoming. At times quiet but that showed a very gentle side. He was always kind and very warm to me and never judged me in any way. A hard working family man with the belief in God. He will surely be missed. I am happy to say I was one of his godsons and even more proud to say I carry on his name as my middle name. Peace and love and comfort to my Aunt Janet and my cousins Sue, Lyn and Ron.
