Sad news

I thought some of the inspectors here may want to know of this passing.

It is with deep sadness - that I have found out that a good friend and first class home inspector Ron Tropea passed away today. Ron practiced in the Ottawa area. Condolences goes out to Ron’s family.

It is my understanding Ron suffered a heart attack. This information was conveyed on the Canuck Forum.

This is so sad a day in the Canadian Home Inspection Industry.
Ron was one of the hardest working and so dedicated to all
Home Inspectors.
He will leave a big hole and will be missed by all.
I think he was loved by every one he ever had met him.

He was a person who enjoyed every minute of every day and was there to help any one any time .

My Condolences go to his family .
