Ronnie spent much of his life working as a Nephrologist and established the Renal Transplant Program at the Montreal General Hospital. He was respected by his colleagues and trainees and adored by his patients. Ronnie was an incredibly special person who touched countless lives, both personally and professionally. He always spoke kindly, treated people with dignity and respect, and had the ability to see the good in everyone. He had a smile for everyone he met. Ronnie was happiest being with his wife, children, and grandchildren and shared many beautiful memories with each one of them. He and Lillian shared a passion for music festivals and travelling, especially cruising, and they never missed a family celebration.
