Ronald Arthur Hall passed away peacefully January 1, 2018 surrounded by the love of his family. Beloved husband of 70 years of Iris Hall - the love of his life and he of hers, cherished father of Andrea (Mike) and Richard (Caroline), loving grandfather of Vanessa, Ryan, and Nate, and step grandfather of Kara (Simon) and Marc (Laura). Ron came to Canada from England in 1957 for the wide open spaces and a better future for his family. He was not disappointed. As a research pharmacologist involved in the early development of penicillin, and later with Merck Frosst, beta blockers and other medicines, his work had a big impact on the health of others. His primary concern was, however, always for the well being of his family. Even at age 96 he was still interested in modern advances in science and medicine, loved history, and was always ready for a good debate with anybody. A celebration of his wonderful long life was held at the family home. We wish to express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Gower, Dr. Lund, Shelley Lillie, and the staff at Hospice Wellington for their care and compassion.

Donations in Ron’s memory to Hospice Wellington, Guelph, Ontario, would be appreciated by the family.
