Ron accepted Jesus as Saviour at 5. He graduated from People’s Christian Academy, studied at Briercrest Bible College, Caronport, Sask., and earned his certificate in turf grass management. Ron worked with his father at Jim Fogarty Music after grad, but his passion for golf led him to golf course management. This career move took Ron and Lisa from Ontario to Whistler, B.C., and ultimately to Pemberton, B.C., where Ron also organized ski/golf tours and ran his own irrigation, landscaping, and snowplow business. In 2011, Ron was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. He fought bravely, knowing the Great Physician was in control. Ron loved playing and watching sports, reading, travelling, music, rollercoasters, airplanes, and motorcycles, but, more than anything, he loved God, Lisa, and being a daddy to his girls.
