Ronald Hugh Buttrum, in his 87th year, passed away suddenly on his family farm in rural Flamborough, on Thursday, October 5th, 2023, with his son by his side. Ron left us with his boots on the ground, doing what he loved best – farming until the very last moment of his life. He has gone to join his beloved wife of 44 years, Etelka (2008) and his daughter Kathy (2022) who was always his shining star. Ron leaves behind his loving son (and farming partner extraordinaire) Hugh Scott Buttrum (Roberta Benallick), his dear son-in-law Dale Young (Kathy Buttrum, predeceased), Roberta’s children Krista and Jacob (Noelle) and grandchildren Hazel and Hudson. The loss of Ron will be felt by many close friends; some of those friends were his lifelong buddies. His companionship will also be missed by his dear friend, Kay Aldgate. People who knew Ron knew him as a devoted family man, a hard-working farmer who raised cattle, hogs, and spinach, and was a respected cash cropper. For 65 years he was a Mason of the Dufferin Lodge No. 291. Ron will truly be missed by everyone. Visitors will be received on Thursday, October 12th from 3-8 pm at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St., Dundas, ON, where the funeral service will also take place, on Friday October 13th at 11:30 am. Interment will follow immediately afterwards at the Mount Zion Cemetery, Flamborough, where Ron will be laid to rest. Expressions of sympathy and memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, or the ALS Society of Canada.
