Upon graduation in 1968, Ron, Rose and the family re-located to Twisp, WA and began his dental career. After two years in Twisp, the family moved once more, this time landing in East Wenatchee, WA. In 1973, he and a partner built the Grant Road Professional Center, which he occupied until his retirement in 2000. During Rons 32-year career in dentistry, his attention to detail and commitment to the care of his patients made him a much sought after professional. Rons passions were varied, but none was greater than his commitment to the idea and practice of, service to others. His resume of service to his community includes; member of the Washington State Dental Society, appointment to the Washington State Board of Health, Washington State Dental Peer Review Committee, Past-President Washington State Pilots Association, and the Douglas County Board of Adjustment. He was a founding member of the Spirit of Wenatchee group and his tireless efforts were instrumental to the construction of the Miss Veedol. He was a member of the East Wenatchee Rotary Club for more than 30 years and served his church and faith at Holy Apostles Catholic Church, where he was instrumental in starting the Parish Council, taught high school CCD, and most recently was a valued volunteer with KC Help. Perhaps his greatest passion, after Rose and his family, was flying.article

So Downing offered to help out during the day while he worked full time at night. In time, one merchant support group turned into another and together changes were starting to come. When it came to the point they needed city support, they just didnt see it, referring to a time over a decade ago when there was more resistance to some of the new ideas downtown merchants came up with. That was then, and Downing says, this is now. He said attitudes have changed quite a bit as more of the citys leaders and businesses work together to bring attention to the unique qualities and history Canal Fulton has to offer. Downing said the roads not always a smooth one, but he has a saying that hes applied to the many opportunities hes had in life: Be consistent and persistent. Whether hes working with a client at a security company, a customer at a plumbing business or the leaders of his community, being consistent and persistent is paying off. His business ventures in Canal Fulton have evolved over the years but the focus is singular: To show others why they should visit his community; to bring their disposable income to town and to absorb the incredible history, and to sell others on Canal Fulton. Sure theres traffic and trucks crisscrossing town. But it is on foot, Downing says, where visitors will find the real hidden treasures of Canal Fulton.

If God leaves a free choice to the person called, he leaves none to those whose duty it is to advise; those spiritual directors or confessors who treat lightly a matter of such importance, or do not answer according to the spirit of Christ and the Church, incur a grave responsibility. And although the candidate has done well in offering himself the answer may be in the negative. But the nature of the ecclesiastical state and the positive constitution of the religious state require some further remarks. Your internet ministry is extremely valuable! Finally, it is important not to compare the value of different vocations but to appreciate the value of each one and to discover which one is right for you. When he felt he had hit a wall in his working life, it was prayer, Scripture, reflection and the counsel of fellow believers that led him in a new direction. Are these general views applicable to the choice of a state of life? The elements of this vocation are all the interior and exterior helps, the efficacious graces which have led to the taking of the resolution, and all the graces which produce meritorious perseverance. The Bishop has been placed by Christ as the head of that diocese, and the diocesan priest serves in obedience to and collaboration with him, serving mostly in parishes.
