Buried Here –

Ronald John Tabak

Ron Tabak was an opera-trained vocalist in the Canadian rock group, Prism. His death is somewhat a mystery. It is believed that he was struck by a passing vehicle while riding his bicycle. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital where doctors did not find anything wrong with him.

Ron abruptly became abusive after his release from the hospital, which prompted police officers at the hospital to arrest him on the belief he was drunk. He was later discovered unconscious in his jail cell and was rushed back to the hospital. A second examination discovered a blood clot had developed on the right side of his brain.

Ron died on December 25, 1984 at the age of 31.
