Ron Charbonneau
It was with deep regret that the college announced the passing of Ron Charbonneau on Friday, March 1, 2002. Ron was an original staff member at Vanier College and spent almost 32 years as a dedicated teacher of History, and member of the department of Social and Cultural Sciences. He is greatly missed by his colleagues,

friends and students and is remembered for his passionate interest in History, which he so wonderfully transmitted to those around him.

History faculty member Jim Najarian wrote an article about Ron for the VCTA Newsletter.
