Robert TuckerMy condolences to the Joseph family. I had the honor of knowing and working with Ron while we were employed at the LP Services. Ron was one of those guys you could count on being comfortable around with his constant smile and appealing humor. Not many people own those attributes. I'm certain his demeanor was the same off duty. Ron was blessed with a long retirement and a loving family. Will think about you.

The two of you created many memories for us as a young family. Thank you. The Klomps - 27 Jena Crescent
