  1. Very sorry for Ron’s passing. Great guy…….said it like it was. He had so many great stories of his life…encounters with faulty equipment….dealing with police road…lousy drivers…..opinions on politics……and so on. He had a great passion for things made in the old days… related logging and music. Will miss him.

  2. I got to know Ron through my Gravel business. In fact he helped me develop the business by selling me my first excavator and screening plant and a great deal of sound advice given freely

    I was sorry when Ron sold his dump truck because it reduced the number of visits I had from him. Ron continued to drop by on occasion just to Shoot the S**t

    I’ll miss him and will remember him.

  3. We are very sorry that Ron has passed. We really enjoyed our conversations with Ron talking cars and adventures, and will miss his quick wit and charm. I am certain Ron and his cousin, my father, Len Fielding, are kicking up some dust and getting some mud on the tires in God’s country. Godspeed Ron.

    Our sincere condolences to Ron’s family and friends. We are sorry this sad time is upon you.
