Just read a post from an old gas member that used to be on here on Face book. Stated that Ron Carey from Canada's Heritage park had been killed in an auto accident in England on the Brighton tour. Very sad news as most all have seen his collection and have either heard of him or have dealt with him over the years. Maybe someone else can bring more light to this.

Craig.
Yes, it is true he was killed early this morning at the London to Brighton car rally. He wife was air lifted to hospital in serious condition. Ron and I have been close friends for many years and I will miss him dearly, my prayers and thoughts go out to his wife Billie and family. The hobby has lost another great pioneer...Ron was eight years young.

I just found out about this tragedy from a friend. My prayers go out to his family.I hope his wife survives. I did not know Ron personally but he was an upstanding man from what others had told me.

Ron was the person Rob wrote about. Amongst other philanthropic endeavors he donated a significant portion of his collection to set up a museaum- Gasoline Alley at Heritage Park. It has been featured on this site a few times.

Attached is a picture of Ron Carey at his Heritage Park Museum in Calgary in front of one of his favorite vehicles which he restored.
I will deeply miss his visits, working together, chasing rare pumps and untold stories.
My prayers go out to Ron's family and a speedy recovery to his wife.

Just thought I'd let you guys know that Ron Carey died tragically yesterday. He was driving a vintage car during a rally in London and was involved in an accident.
Here is a link to the story, Ron Carey News It's a very sad day for his family, and the many people he touched in his 80 years.

Thanks Lance for the picture of Ron hard at work as usual.
There is a thread started earlier that speaks to his passing.
