Thank you to everyone who has expressed their wish to honour Ron’s memory in some way. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting support to create a legacy fund in Ron’s name. We are proud to say, we have created the Master Warrant Officer Ronald During Education Legacy Fund. This scholarship will support students attending the Nursing Program at Red Deer Polytechnic and provide an ongoing legacy for Ron. It was important to Ron that he showed support to the amazing nursing staff who cared for him during the last stages of his service injury. This endowment will prepare the essential workers who are needed to care for future service members who may also find themselves with injury due to their work in the Canadian Armed Services.
