Ron Sale illness

2 posts in this topic

It is with great sadness to learn that Ron was recently admitted to the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital with a terminal illness. Better known here as Leadwing, the current President,

 

Ron is a long time smart car enthusiast who likes the smart car so much that he owns two - a cabrio for summer and a coupe for the winter. His enthusiasm has been unwavering!

 

Thoughts and prayers to a kind and gentle man.

SALE, Ronald Norman
July 30, 1941 -
January 23, 2024

Sale, Ron passed away after a short battle with cancer. He passed away at St Thomas General Hospital, January 23, in his 83rd year.

 

Ron is survived by his spouse Dot Sale, his children Roni (Gary), Randy (Barb) and sisters Lynne and Janet (Don), niece Deena (Pete) and nephews Drew (Cary) and Scott.

 

Ron grew up in Toronto, and met Dot in high school.

They chummed around with a tight group of friends, and began their life together during that time. Motorcycles were always in the equation as Dot soon found out. Ron's passion for racing (in his bright yellow "banana suit"), and officiating events lasted well into his 40's.

 

He was a Canadian Motorcycle champion, and displayed these and many other awards proudly. He also enjoyed boating, and could be seen towing boats with his 1975 Goldwing to one of his favourite locations.

 

In his later years, SMART cars and the SMART car club became a source of enjoyment with many tours and lunches shared with the club. He always had a sense of humour which he shared regularly with those around him, and never failed to order a free smile off the menu.

 

I would like to thank Ron's neighbours who have helped him out the last couple of years with yard work, snow removal, stopping by with dogs for nice little visits and also bringing over food. Special thanks to Debbie, an absolute rock star of a neighbour (30 years). Helping Ron out when he needed it, taking him to and from medical appointments at all hours of the day. We can't thank her enough.

 

A memorial Service will be held at Needham Funeral Service on Monday, January 29, 2024 at 11 a.m. Visitation will be held an hour prior. Fond memories can be left at www.needhamfuneralhome.com.
