  2. Dear Marls and family & Minnie [woof woof] Rons adorable dog.
    So saddened by Rons passing , so pleased was able to wish him happy 90th birthday recently.
    What can I say about the man , well for starters he had the most wonderful wife Marls and he adored his children/grandies/and great grandies.
    Met Ron and Marls 40 years ago with Davo at Direct Car Sales in 10th street, the Xmas parties were the best Ron
    would go fishing and catching yabbies for the massive BBQUE heaps of food and beers on the house that was the way the Davison family operated they made you feel welcome and loved .
    Ron had a nickname for me then AGGIE , and since then the whole Davison clan still call me that .
    Will miss you old mate, it’s hard to understand why people are taken from us,but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of a well lived life and savvy business man . Marls will look after your Minnie….As I always called it the ‘ugly dog Deb got you from Nama ‘
    Aggie sends her love to Marls, Garry[Davo] Deb. Julie and Sandy .

  4. Dear Marlene – how sadden Greg and I were to learn of Ron’s passing. George and Anita loved you both and it was always a special event to visit you in Mildura. Greg and I too remember you both fondly as very special people. You even hosted me twice for mid-winter escapes from Melbourne in 1967 and 1968 at the caravan park. Such fun times in a very simple way. Your flashing smile and Ron’s wicked grin still stand out. Our love to you and your family.

  7. To the man you might call Ron, Ronnie, Mr. Davison, Dad or in my case, Pa.

    You were a cheeky Pa. Witty as they come. I have no doubt this also got you into some mischief back in the day! You always found a way to twist our words around the dinner table and make everyone laugh. The grin that came with that, oh the grin. We can all picture it now!

    You were also a soft Pa though, more than you’d admit. Rescue dog, Minnie, stole your heart and became the ultimate four legged companion just when you needed her. This made me so happy to see when I’d visit you.

    Put simply – You were the best Pa. I’ll miss you but the beauty is that you’re now with all of us where ever we go.

    We will never quite know who No.1 Grandchild ended up being – it’s been a hot contest between us for awhile now. Fixing the garden tap – 5 brownie points, Red Rooster delivery – 10 brownie points, Milk 2 points, Scorched Almond 10 points, Chauffeur to the doctors – 8 points… you get the gist!

    So if you could send us a sign, that might help us work out whose shouting the bar tab this Christmas!

    We’ll take good care of Nan and Minnie for you. We’ll also make sure the great grandkids keep your red gofer hooning down 12th street.

    You are special. To all of us. You were and always will be my Pa.

    Xxx love your Granddaughter, Elly
