We are saddened to announce the passing of Ronald "Buzz" Baron on November 17, 2021 at the age of 73 years.
Ron will be dearly missed by his sisters Ollie and Gloria (Gerry); sister-in-law Barb; nieces and nephews Ryan, Laura, Rick, Marilyn and Lori; great-nephews Michael, Daniel and Kenny as well as many cherished friends.
Ron was predeceased by his parents John and Anne; brother Walter; brother-in-law Richard; and nephew Kevin.
Ron grew up on the family farm in Carlowrie, Manitoba. In the 1960s, he moved to Winnipeg where he would reside for the rest of his life. In 1972 Ron, by then a self-taught amateur mobile DJ, started Buzz’s Music Service, which quicky grew in popularity and success. In 1980, he acquired Pro Sound. 1985 saw the merger with Partie Sound and culminated in the acquisition of Crystal Sound in 1989. Ron remained with Crystal Sound for over 30 years, playing an integral role in the company’s development and operations.
Ron was a true gentleman, meticulous and full of optimism. A thoughtful and considerate man, he was well known to put others before himself. Children especially adored him, and no family get together would be complete without questions of whether Uncle Buzz would be there. He was always there to brighten the lives of others.
Besides his DJ and business talents, Ron was also known as the “football pools guru” and founder of the famous St. Malo Lawn Darts Tournament. He also enjoyed travelling, especially if it meant getting together with family and friends.
A celebration of Ron’s life will be held on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Lawn Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd., Winnipeg with Marianne Propp as officiant.
In compliance with current public health orders, proof of vaccination and photo ID will be required for all attendees.
