  4. Ron was a highly regarded Foundation and LIfe Member of Yinnar Bowls Club. Throughout his long and illustrious bowling career he achieved many honours at Club, District & State level but Ron was modest and would only say he won too many trophies to remember. Despite health issues in latter years, Ron didn’t complain and was still bowling in our highest division Saturday Pennant team last season . Ron will be missed by the Yinnar and broader bowling community.

  5. As a new bowler I loved bowling with Ron. Despite being an extremely accomplished bowler himself, he was unfailingly encouraging and supportive of me and gave simple and helpful feedback. I greatly admired his sunny disposition and stoicism in the face of adversity. I am sad that I won’t get to bowl with him again but will cherish the memory of having had the opportunity to do so.

    Leanne Emond August 14, 2020
  6. When I first joined the Yinnar Bowls, it was Ron who always came up to me and said hello. He always had a smile on his face and was happy to see me. I’m going to miss those greetings and smiles. And the next stop on Ron’s journey will be the better for it. Nicole and my sympathies go out to Ron’s family. X

  14. Ron was one of life’s true gentlemen and we consider it a privilege to have known him. His stories of work and his family are legendary, particularly over a few beers at the Shippies in Hobart. We always enjoyed Ron’s banter and we will miss the great laughs we had together. Out thoughts are with Sandy and Deb, knowing that Ron was immensely proud of you both.
    Ron is sorely missed but will never be forgotten.

  15. My late husband Ron, and l have enjoyed a lovely friendship with Ron and Win for over 40 years. We have treasured memories of a holiday together in N.Z. and of participating in many many team bowling competitions. Ron was always encouraging and friendly who taught me so much. I feel fortunate enough to have played as his 3rd in many tournaments. Ron was both a champion person and a champion bowler. Condolences to Sandra, Debbie and families.

  16. On behalf of Jessica, Isabelle and Adelaide, we pass on our sincerest condolences to Sandy and Debra on the passing of our beloved Poppy and father-in-law. He was a loving father and grandfather and a man who could and would reach out to anyone, comfortable in conversation with people from all walks of life. He was a steely competitor and he loved the thrill of competition but he never crossed the line, always fair and always a thorough gentleman. He had a wicked sense of humour combined with warmth and compassion and he was a great friend to so many people. We will miss him greatly.

  34. I first me Ron in 1954 in Yinnar south. We knocked around as mates for 6 year’s and in 1960 we headed to Tassie. We worked together and went to dances where we met 2 beautiful sisters. We toured around the state together until Win and Ron got married and headed back to the mainland. We have been the best of mates ever since.
