Margie we are so sorry to hear of your, and your families, loss! Ron was such a nice guy. Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers in the upcoming weeks!

Ron is free from worldly concerns and cares ... for those of us who were blessed by knowing him, Ron will always be always be an example of the kind of person, with exceptional humility and profound strength, that we should strive to be. I am fortunate in terms of the managers and supervisors that I had in my career, but Ron will always stand out in terms of the quality of his leadership, his vision and genuine concern for the customers of the products we produced and the people we worked with. Although no one can replace him, hopefully those mourning his passing can find some solace in the fact that Ron lives on through the people whose lives he touched. Ron was a great man!

So sorry to hear of Uncle Ron's passing. I remember him as a gentle, calming soul. I have fond memories of him from our family visits in the summer when I was young. Love to Margie and the rest of the family.
