Ron was known as Mr. AMC. He was an avid believer of anything AMC, and would often tell you more than you needed to know.

Ron attended many folk festivals, The Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival being his favourite. He also enjoyed travelling to New York for musical theatre, Florida and Europe. Ron always had cats; Bucky and Gypsy will miss him.
