“What a friend we have in Jesus” This song describe Ron’s friendship with so many in Grace Church.
We missed your smiling face every Sunday, your “bear” hugs, and more importantly your presence, standing at the door to welcome all who comes to Grace Church!!
We missed you so much. Your story of your life journey you shared with us will be missed.
You are now finally home with the Lord, with no more aches, pain or worry as you have so longed to be united with Trudy. Farewell my dear friend until we meet again someday!!

and did not realize how many people liked and loved him ,,,,,, I was blessed to have him for my brother…… xx Lorraine
My heart is broken now that you’re gone but at least I know you’re at peace and no longer in pain.

Many fond memories of Ron, especially in the years when the girls were young. We shared lots of banter and both enjoyed a good laugh together. We did butt heads at times but there was always a mutual respect for each other and a shared love for mum. I will always be grateful for his care of mum before she passed. Rest in peace Ron. x
Deepest sympathies to all the family. I’m thinking of you at this very sad time.
So many memories and a different one comes to mind everyday…….Ron did not realize how many lives he touched……the same as you we butted heads but we could appreciate where
each one of us was coming from…….my beautiful loving, caring and fun loving brother, Ron has left us and is now with my beautiful loving, caring and fun loving sister-in-law and Friend, Trudy…….what a reunion that will be…… xx Lorraine
I will miss you so much Pa and I will hold our shared moments together forever close to my heart. I’ll never forget your stories and “helping” you and Oma out at the markets or at the factory during school holidays.
As much as I wish you were still here, I’m glad your suffering has ended and you’re at peace with Trudy.
May we meet again xx

Dear Lyndal, Lorraine, Shannon and Beau and the whole of Ron’s family. Ron and I became very close over the years we knew each other at Grace Church. I was his pastor … but Ron came to also be a pastor to me in return. He truly became the heart of the church with a great love for everybody there. And we heard so much about his love for his family. Along with you we will all miss him greatly. Over your whole family I pray this blessing from the Bible … “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26) With all my love, Tim Kerlin.
Thank you, Tim.
