One of the most touching tributes came from former Isidingo actor Jack Devnarain, who applauded Ron for having been a great guide.

"That moment when you think back to the last time you spoke to someone for whom you have the greatest respect & admiration. You agreed to coffee and catch up. Then he's gone. Actor, icon, legend & guide #RonSmerczak is no more," he wrote.
