On April 4, 2018, Ron White was cast in a courageous and undaunted final fight with cancer. Thousands of messages from adoring friends and relatives inspired this last act of his rich and full life. He was a hugely celebrated Canadian actor who masterfully moved from stage to screen. Born in 1953 in Dawson Creek, BC, Ron was predeceased by father Thomas Earl, mother Grace Mary, brother Brian and twin brother Don. Ron will be dearly missed by his treasured son Jesse White, best friend and best foe Lisa, big brother Earl and many much loved nieces, nephews and in-laws. The family expresses deepest thanks to Dr. Gail Darling and Dr. Jennifer Knox, Toronto General Hospital staff as well as the many friends who loved and supported him. A Celebration of Ron's Life will take place at Crow's Theatre, May 6th at 3 p.m. Location: Streetcar Crowsnest, 345 Carlaw Avenue, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Actors Fund of Canada in memory of Ron White.
