Ron is my nephew and like so many others have proclaimed, he will be missed dearly. Ron was such a kind, thoughtful and caring soul and loved his sisters. There was pride in his voice when he spoke of them and their families. I know I share my families sentiments when I say how proud we all are of Ron and blessed to have been a part of his life. Speak of Ron often, as shared memories will help with the healing and may it bring peace to the soul of family and friends.
We love you Ron

I lost count of the times I saw Ron on MVA calls with my fire department. I actually didn’t recognize him for a while once he cut his rock & roll hair ! Sorry you got called to your last recovery job early.
