FURTHER INFORMATION IS NEEDED ABOUT THIS PERSON, THEIR LIFE, THEIR CAREER AND THEIR DEATH.

PLEASE SEND PHOTOS AND INFORMATION TO Cal

Rons’ cancer was deemed a HOD from a rescue response incident in Blacktown to a chemical spill.

Trevor Watkins was also a Rescue Operator who attended the same incident and died some time before Ron of the same cancer.  Doctors linked the 2 Police to the same chemical spill event.
Trevor, however, is NOT mentioned on the Police Wall of Remembrance.
