My thoughts and prayers are with Ron's family. For the few short years that Ron worked with us we loved him. He is one of a kind and will be missed. We love you Ron.

So sorry to hear of Ron's passing. Many fond memories come back thinking of being a Bearcat 'B-Teamer' in 1957-58, watching and learning from "Dink", my brother Gary and their varsity teammates and being part of their lives. Truly 'good old days'!! We will miss him.

My condolences for the loss of your family member.His son Rob was a good friend of mine and my family. Like a brother. He visited me regularly at the beach, and I celebrate his life every September 16th. He is not forgotten.

Ron was always a delight when he would come into the office to take care of his bills. He always had a smile on his face and was one to always joke around. He truly will be missed. Fly high Ron!!
