My thoughts are with you, Duffy. I have always seen Ronnie as one of us Prodgers. When I said this to Dad, he said “He was!”
He celebrated with us and he grieved with us. He will be greatly missed. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Amazing how one person can touch so many lives in a lifetime. Ron was such a unique and joyous person that could turn any situation into laughter within a moment for any generation to cherish. We will miss his contagious laughter at a bridge table, so our deepest condolences to Duffy, Melody and Bryce (Denise) and families.

Duffy, Mel and Bryce...So sorry to hear of Ron's passing. When we met on the street, I wondered how he would greet me...Mr. Ford?, Mr. Chevrolet?, and always with his hearty laugh and huge grin.
We are saddened but he gave us so many laughs and that is what we should remember. He may be gone but TOOT,TOOT and the Baseball Story will live on!!
Wonderful guy!!

Please know we send our deepest condolences! Ron was like a big brother to me when I was growing up, so many good memories. Every time I saw Ronny and talk with him, I was just in awe at how much he reminded me of his Beautiful Mom...Avis. He was a special man. So happy he did the honour of the eulogy for our Mom and to know he felt the same way about our Mom as we felt about his Mom.. Big hugs sent to you, Duffy, Gary, Lyle, Bonnie and your Families.

What a sad, sad time! Although we hadn’t seen Ron for many years, he was a big part of wonderful P.V. school memories. He was a valuable member of our basketball team in high school & was a lot of fun in the classroom —- teachers had difficulty being upset with him because of that big grin that he couldn’t hold back! Our deepest sympathy to Duffy & his family, along with the many friends that he made along the way —- may you be blessed with a multitude of wonderful memories to keep Ron in your hearts.

Sincere condolences to the Cooke families. Used to do some bird hunting with Ron many years ago. When he sold Ins., he put clients first. Enjoyed his humor and people impersonations. Ron was a terrific community man, well respected and will be missed by anyone who knew him.

Dear Duffy and family,

Our most sincere sympathy on the passing of Ron. He was a loved and respected Castorite who will be sadly missed. Coffee time with his friends will never be the same, and who will be able to tell such good jokes?
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
