Sadly Ron passed on 25th November to illness. I had only just met Ron a few months ago when he wanted to replicate a 10 foot balsa board like what he built in 57. I was astounded at the skill he still had in his condition. He cut and glued and shaped this board while not being able to walk it was an amazing feat.
I was cuffed to be able to glass this board = it is now proudly handing in Ron's sons house David, which will be a great reminder of the great man.
How fitting the closing music was from one of Ron's favourite group - The Carpenters.
Rest in Peace Mate! All the best to Fran, David and Annie.
