Ron Gagnon Tribute

Make-A-Wish and Dacon came together to build a boy’s dream of creating a virtual reality geodome for his school. The project caught the eye of Mortarr, the design inspiration website, winning the Do-Gooder award.

Ron Gagnon, one of the original founders of Dacon, passed away April 22nd.

There are many words that describe Ron – a patriotic marine, talented tradesman, concerned leader, an avid mentor and a generous man. Dacon employees experienced all these attributes. Yet most importantly, to us he was a man of values. Foremost, he valued family and is survived by the love of his life Lynn, son Jason, spouse Megan and their new daughter Sydney. His professional values surpassed industry standards, setting the tone for Dacon’s field performance and enabling employees to enjoy progressive careers.  Finally, he highly valued loyalty, on call at all hours for friends and client emergencies alike.

In his honor, there is a scholarship fund established at Wentworth Institute for promising students pursuing construction management degrees. He will always be remembered fondly and in high regard.
