    My sincere condolences go out to the entire Turcot Family. From all that I knew of Ron Turcot, he lived his life with the utmost integrity…high standards that he never wavered from, true to his faith. It’s a rarity to meet someone that has led such an exemplary life, I have witnessed the same with his wife, Rosemary Turcot.
    You live your life and then your life lives you….in the end it’s not the years in your life that count…it’s the life in your years. Heaven gained an angel and the rest of us can adopt the example set by Ron Turcot.
    Prayers to the Turcot family.
    Ron, we will miss you, but not forget you.

    What an amazing person and what a remarkable life. We feel so lucky that Ron and Rosemary were the first Herons Glen residents that we met in 2006 and got to know Ron so well. Ron blessed so many people with his faith and kindness. Praying that you’ll find comfort in your memories of him and in the knowledge that others are missing him, too.

    Turcot family we are so saddened to see this news. Ron loved his family so much, especially his beloved Rosemary. I have so many fond memories growing up in this “second home” . You guys are friends that became family and we hope you know we are here if you need anything. We will be praying for the whole family. May God give you strength during this most difficult time and may Ron’s soul Rest In Peace with Christ. Sending our love to you all. He will definitely be missed.

    I just learned of Ron’s passing today April 11, 2021. I just thought of him earlier this week. He was my friend and a good man. He helped me when I was at a low point and needed it most. He will always be remembered as the kind and thoughtful person I knew. RiP Ron
