Ron was born in New Glasgow and raised in Westville, Nova Scotia. He aspired to greatness from a young age and achieved the highest honour in the Boy Scouts of Canada, the Queen’s Scout. An avid student, he attended Westville High School and then spent three years at Mount Allison University for pre-med before going on to finish his medical degree at Dalhousie University.
A resident of Dartmouth, he worked at the Woodlawn Medical Clinic and held privileges at Dartmouth General Hospital. He was devoted to his patients and highly respected by his colleagues. Known for his kindness, sage advice, great sense of humour he was steadfastly loyal and committed to family.
Ron loved spending time in Mexico his home away from home. He loved travel and spent time in New York, London and Scotland where he researched the Muir family history. He was an avid antiques collector and has donated several pieces to local museums. He loved driving his red 1969 Corvette, and gardening at his lakeside home.
We would like to thank the staff at Parkland at the Lakes, for the incredible care they extended to Ron over these past years.
