The picture you have shared immediately reminds me of the Ron I got to know all those years ago in Montreal - for me it captures his spirit and personality - just a really really nice person to know and be around. My heartfelt condolences to family and friends. I will hold you dear in my prayers at this difficult time.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Neftin and family. Frances and I have great memories of all of the times we dined together at various restaurants in Toronto and the great conversations we had with Ron and mutual friends at various social gatherings held in his apartments. Ron was best man at our wedding back in 1989 and as always, he was a gentleman with an abundance of kindness and generosity. He will be missed. Richard, Frances and our children Claire and Charles

To the Neftin family, I am so saddened to hear the news about Ron. We met in a cooking class over 30 years ago. I always said that I didn't learn much about preparing meals but I made a friend for life. It was always fun getting together with Ron - he had a wealth of knowledge, lots or stories and interesting friends. He was always upbeat and optimistic even when we visited him in Maimonides over these last years. He will be greatly missed. Don Chazan and Bonnie Ornstein

Cody - 11 days ago

Gheta, Lou, Billy and Donna. My condolences and sadness for the passing of Ron. I am reminded of all the joyful times I spent with him during my childhood. My fondest personal memory was a full day the two of us spent together in Toronto; he took me to a Go-Kart track and then out for food when I was quite young. It’s the day I think of when I think back to our time spent together, as I recall the day wrapping up and thinking about how much fun I had. I always remember how excited I was to see him and hear from him, and how friendly and enthusiastic he was in engaging with and learning about me. Ron had a warm heart, he was so caring and expressed genuine interest in hearing about how my life was evolving as I grew up. I always appreciated his willingness to ‘get down on my level’ and try to relate to me, even considering the age gap. I was lucky to have a cousin like him. I will continue to hold onto the great memories I have of him, and he will be sincerely missed. All my love. Cody

Philip Lassman - 11 days ago

Dear Gheta, Lou, Donna & Billy, I am so very sorry and saddened to hear about Ron’s passing. I remember the day when Ron called me after many years of not seeing one another, I was so glad to reconnect with him again. Though he didn’t have it easy, when I would visit him we told stories and reminisced about early memories. I remember his laugh and the way he could find humor in things. He was always such a warm and giving person. I can’t imagine the pain of losing him but I hope that now that he’s no longer in pain, I hope you can cherish the wonderful memories and blessings he brought to all of you, I know I will. On behalf of my family, I want to express our deepest condolences to you all of the family at this very sad time. Philip, Debbie, Matthew & Libby Lassman.

Michael Levy - 12 days ago

Dear Gheta, Lou, Donna, Billy, and family: A lot of water has passed under the bridge since Ron and I became good friends at the beginning of elementary school – around the age of five or six. Whether riding our bicycles on Sheraton Drive or watching Star Trek in each other’s house, we spent a fair bit of time together over those years. It’s a sad and sobering time but, as Donna wrote to me, at least Ron - who I still called “Nifty Neftin”, is no longer in pain. Gloria, Jake and Samantha – all of whom met Ron, join me in sending condolences; our thoughts are with you.

Lorna singer - 12 days ago

Dear Lou and Gheta please accept my very sincere condolences. Most unfortunate we were neighbors when Gerry and Ronny were both at Maimonides. No I know why never heard from you when Gerry passed due to Covid 19. No more sorrow. Fondly Lorna

Bernard Gotlieb - 12 days ago

I want to extend my deepest condolences to the Neftin family over the loss of Ron. He and I became friends in high school and reconnected some years back when he was unfortunately at Maimmonides. I visited him there from time to time, spoke on the phone and always told him how amazing he was with his attitude and disposition, given his terrible affliction that befell him. He always had a smile and was so pleasant. I always felt it was so unfair him being trapped in a hospital as life was going by. He was so brave and a hero to all. He inspired me. Ron, rest in peace my good friend. I'm so sorry.
