Anna on the new Ron Brunette Memorial Bench

The new bench donated by Anna in memory of her late husband Ron at the Island Pathways History Kiosk at the end of Ganges Harbour on Salt Spring Island.

Come sit in with Ron while on the island. Bring your personal audio device and tune into some of Ron's songs that are available here. You can Rest Awhile on the bench and Listen to the Songs in the AIR.
Many thanks to the following for making this Bench a beautiful work of art: 
  • Ian Van Wyck for the design
  • Donald McLennan for building the wood components and putting it all together
  • Island Marine for fabricating the aluminium frame
  • Ron Ateah of Salt Spring CNC for the plaque
  • PARC for the space
  • Island Pathway volunteers
  • Ron Brunette Memorial Fund



Ron loved to sing and often did so as one of the trio "Odd Men Out" which he founded in 1993 with Ian Van Wyck (bass) and Mike Simpson (keyboards).

Mike often recorded the gigs and in 1997 some of these recordings made their way onto a CD called "Changes" which was compiled and released in Ron's memory.

The CD is available for $10 plus shipping. Use the contact link in the  top menu.
