Joan Sargeant says: Ron was my partner and my friend and we had 20 years together. His death was sudden and we miss him dearly. A great footballer, who gave his very best to his teams and his country. Ron was loved by all he played with and coached here in NZ as well as Goulburn and Inverell in Australia. Even after two years I still miss him. xxx Rest in Peace, Ron. (13/09/2015)
