As a result, Ron attended a Trades school in St. John’s, NL, to obtain his certificates in sheet metal work and welding. Putting his new skills to work, Ron began his career at the local Asbestos Mine, where he worked until 1973. Packing up the family, he moved west to Fraser Lake, British Columbia, where he began to work at the Endako Mine.

Over the decades, Ron used his trades skills in various towns and cities, stretching from Newfoundland through to the North West Territories and finally resting in British Columbia.
