  1. I am so very sad to hear of Ron’s death. He was a vibrant and talented person. Ron was an active member of the Heritage Group and even attended our zoom meeting in April, 2021. I will miss him.

  2. I just want to second Dale’s commentary of Ron Bliq. He was a quiet and competent gentleman with uncommon energy and initiative. I still have a copy of the first edition of his Technically Write. Many years ago my wife Beverley and I played bridge at his home. We also car-pooled to and from home to “MIT” as RRC was then called. We rather liked the borrowed lustre of the name. Yes, Ron was a prolific writer with a ton of stories to tell. We had a common military background, he a veteran in WW2 in both Europe and Burma, and I in the RCAF over the North Atlantic during the Cold War. And yet he was not much older than me. Yes, he did have a remarkable life. We are so sorry to see him take his final flight, and we are honoured to have known him.

  3. Ron was a leader and innovator, yet quiet, soft-spoken and reserved…a gentleman. He was my Department Head when I joined RRCC. I considered him a mentor who taught me how to write in a technical manner. He was an active amateur playwright after he retired, although he didn’t really retire. He just broadened his horizon. He was a regular participant at, and strong supporter of, the Heritage Group when he wasn’t travelling. He will be missed.
