Ron Fenton

Ron Fenton was a man who epitomised what it means to be an advocate. He suffered many trials and tribulations through his life that ultimately led him down a path that saw him help many people. As I have spoken previously about in this place, Ron recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. His advocacy to use dogs as a means to assist people with post-traumatic stress injury and other mental injuries will be his lasting legacy. I was so very proud to see that Ron was posthumously awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday honours. Ron knew of this before he passed, and knowing him he would have been very proud and extremely humbled. It is hard to think of someone more deserving of this award.
