After a short but aggressive battle with cancer, Ron sadly passed away on Friday, October 11th, 2019 at the age of 77. His wife of 52 years, Susan and his daughter Jennifer were by his side. The son of Walter and Rose Brodawka, Ron is survived by his sister, Helen Hyjek. Ron studied Mechanical Engineering at Ryerson University and worked in his chosen field, HVAC, until his retirement 10 years ago. His children and their partners, Jennifer (John) and Jeffrey (Cayla) meant the world to him and he was so proud of his four grandchildren; Willow, Sam, Emerson and newly born Harlow. Ron loved to travel, ski and golf and he had fond memories of times spent with his many cherished friends. Always fun to be around, an avid reader and gardener, Ron’s sly sense of humour will be missed by all who loved him dearly.
