    I am a first cousin of “Ron”. My mother was Violet Rogers “Anderson” from Chatham. I was named after Ron’s father “Walter” Anderson. Most of my time was spent with Ron and his brothers and sister growing up as “children”. Playing at the “Anderson farm” where the Anderson Annual Reunion was born. I also spent an “unforgettable” evening with Ron when my 3rd daughter was born. I hope to extend my condolences during visitation but wanted to share my sympathy

    1. Christie Anderson

      Thank-you Walter and Judy Rogers as so many years have gone by and I still grieve the loss I can never fill but only keep him close to my heart and speak of my dad in almost every way about me. Some say my laugh remembers Dad’s sece of humour and grandness for playtime in life’s biggest ways. One thing Dad new how to do was How To Have Fun. He would always say, ” If you can’t laugh at yourself, ome here and I will laugh at you for you. Ha!” I miss him and yet there is a void still of which I have yet to know. Speaking with Dads friends and friends at work, extended family, etc. always brings a refreshing smile to my heart yet a deep bolder plummits to the bottom of my gut because I have yet to know his family of whom is my family too. I hope one day we can visit and remember the good times and perhaps reinstall the importance of sharing wisdom and stories of our inspirational family loved ones.

  2. Dear Christie, I know nothing will seem right for a bit but know your Dad loved you & your girls. You were the light in his eye. You are in my thought Christie. God Bless

    Christie we are so sorry for your lost. He was such a great guy, always laughing and having fun. I will have to tell you a story some time about what kind of a prank he did to me when I was little. He worked with my dad so that is how I met him. Again I am so sorry for your lost, he will be missed.

  4. I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Ron. I didnt know him for very long but want to say that he was a mentor to me in the pipeline trade and went out of his way to help me. Loved his humour and outlook! He will be missed by many.

    sincere condolences to all. He was a very loved man. I hope you are all coping as well as can be expected. I have learned that I had many friends that knew and loved him, that I did not know knew him. All the best to all family and friends coping with the loss.
