Rena, I'm so sorry for your loss. Ron has been a friend for so many years. He gave Mike and I, a lot of advise, and laughs, through the years. I send my prayers to you and your family, for strength, and peace. He will be deeply missed. Love Darleen

I have known Ron for 46 yrs. He was a warm hearted man, friendly and very easy to talk to. Very much a family man , loving husband. He was a wonderful brother-in-law. We stopped by not too long ago to visit, but no one heard us knocking. My daughter hadn't seen him in a few years and I wanted him to meet his great niece, He was loved and will be sadly missed.
