Condolences on ur loss.
Amber Tito, Glengarry Invercargill
I'm shocked to hear the news. And I'm so sorry for your loss. Uncle Rusty was a good man and I loved spending time with him. I have good memories of visiting him at his car lot when I was a kid His collection of matchbox cars on the wall. I know that as I got older we lost touch due to me now living on the opposite side of the world but Ron and everyone else is always in my heart. I will miss him greatly. From Mitchell Wilson

We are all the poorer for the passing of such a good bloke.
Peter Hardy, Invercargill
So sorry to hear of the passing of Ron. My heartfelt condolences to Joan and extended family. Have some wonderful memories of him during his time with the Invercargill Cadet Unit as Chairman and Cook when the unit went on camps. He was nicknamed Ron Stoppable (or should that be Un-Stoppable) by a few of the parents and Cadets. Will be missed by all. Much love to you all from the other Cook, Dot Anderson (aka Kim Possible)
