In 1966 he returned to Canada and taught Sociology at the University of Waterloo for the next 38 years. Ron's professional interests included the Sociology of Time and of Memory. Above all else was his love of family. This lead him to travel extensively to visit family and friends, and to pursue genealogical research.

They also sponsored multiple refugee families over the years and enjoyed being surrogate parents to many young people. Ron was a proud member of the community and was eagerly awaiting the completion of the LRT.

Special thanks to Drs. Milio, Fowlis, Gregor, Stevens, Jahromi and all the other doctors, nurses and staff at Grand River Hospital. Thank you as well to the staff at the Sunshine Centre at Luther Village. After his wife and best friend of almost 50 years passed away in 2014, Ron was grateful for the many friendships he made at Luther Village.

Ron's family will receive relatives and friends from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, February 5, 2017 at the Henry Walser funeral home, Kitchener.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Grand River Hospital Foundation or Mennonite Central Committee would be appreciated by the family.
