Steve and Scott, I am sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. You and your family are in my prayers.
Our thoughts and Prayers are with you all.
I remember Uncle Ronnie always telling to story of when he got my sister-his niece to smoke her first cigarette. I am glad that we were able to get with Ronnie, my dad-Walt & mom with Jim & I at the family restaurant. We always had so much fun!!!! He will be greatly missed. Prayers with you all.
Ron always had a smile whenever I saw him at 6 am in the gym when I had drill team practice. He always offered to help with whatever.
He and my husband, Al, loved to talk football whenever they had the chance. Maybe they will cross paths in the heavens. May he Rest In Peace.
Ron was a good friend and he was my buddy at the school. I wouldn’t have been able get the concerts set up without him. We had many one on one time during lunch hours. Many laughs and a new joke every day. He would go home and check his joke book, at least that’s what he told me. Ron we will miss you. May the good Lord be with your family during their time of loss. May you meet with your son in heaven. Jerry
