MWO Ronald Alexander Pruden

As a young growing boy all Ron wanted to do was join the Royal Canadian Air Force. In the summer of 1954 he turned 17. His parents drove him to Winnipeg, and signed the papers that would allow him to do the only thing he ever wanted. He was in the air force.

Ron served his country proudly for 45 years, including 3 years in Germany during the Cold War. At 30 years of age, he was a Master Warrant Officer. He took over the Air Cadets for the next 15 years, in charge of 37 cadet units in Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. He was head Warrant Officer when retired in 1999. He was a long time active member of the Charleswood Legion with his wife Dianna until he passed in 2019.
