Dear Larry and family,
I am Mike Fisher's sister Deb and this condolence is sent on behalf of myself and my mom Barbara (Fisher) Wilson--she has brought this obit to me in London. There are no words to describe how devasted and sorry we are. We have very fond memories of Mike and Ronnie.. many years best buddies getting into mischief and much trouble. What one didn't think of the other one did! We are happy knowing that they are together once again most likely riding Mike's harley around looking for mischief and more laughs.
We remember them both with much love.
Deb(Fisher)Gerstmar and Barbara (Fisher) Wilson.
I am very sorry to hear about Ronnie. I remember back years ago when I was in Grade 5 the students from St. Alfred's had to come to Canadian Martyrs for one year, and yes your Ron was in my class with his sidekick Tommy Farr. This was the first time I met Ronnie.He was such a nice guy and I never forgot him. Years later little did I know that I would be working with him at Keystone Kelly's. Wow! could he cook and he was famous for his Cheescake.He was always smiling and such a caring and giving person. I am truely sorry for your loss please know how much he was liked....
Today I received an e-mail from young Katie Benjatschek who is down in Cartegen, Colombia. She worked at Greycliff Manor for a while, and when she heard of Ron's tragic passing, asked me to be sure to send her most heartfelt compassion and to share her grief with you. I hope you are bearing up as well as possible under these most trying circumstances. -peter j. campbell
Sad to hear Ron was great guy , always a joker he will be greatly missed.

Ron, even though I only got to meet you a few times, I could tell you were a really great guy, caring about others before yourself. Last time I was over you made me an amazing birthday dinner and we all had a great time. You kept saying how happy you were for Ronnie for meeting such a nice girl. I wish I got to know you better, it is upsetting that I will never get the chance to now. Rest in Paradise ,
Kurstie, Ronnie's girl friend
On behalf of the residents at Greycliff Manor, I wish to extend my sincere condolences to Shannon and her family in this their time of grieving, sorrow and loss. Ron was a ray of sunshine. Always in good humour, he spoiled us with the level of professionalism and genuine caring he brought to the table. I always enjoyed talking with Ron, and was impressed with the range and depth of his knowledge of food and wines, their cultivation, preparation and serving. Working in a modest kitchen within strict budgetary limitations, Ron brought a lifetime of skill and imagination to a labour of love and we all benefited from his company. I will miss his smiling face. Please remember that Ron is in our thoughts and prayers, even as we pray that you may find comfort in this time of mourning. May God bless.

Ron will always be remembered for his kindness & the way he cared the most for the people who had the least in life. To know Ron and Shannon is to know what love and compassion is we all mourn, cry & miss a great man.(It also needs to be said...the man could cook)!
I'll never forget the laughs we shared in the kitchen.....a regular day could become full of mischief and laughs in an instant. Ron was full of life, and eager to pull another into his world of love.
I will always remember Ron as kindness and unselfishness, personified. He was a saint, if there ever was one.
Ron or "Buddy" as he was called was a great man. He would help anyone with anything. Ron meant alot to myself and my boyfriend Jay.He will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered in our hearts!! He is now cooking in the biggest kitchen of all!!! Love and miss you so much
