Ronald R. (Ron) Finch, 50, of Binghamton and former longtime resident of Norwich, went to be with the Lord, Sat. evening, Feb. 2, 2013 in Lourdes Hospital of Binghamton.

Ron will best be remembered as a bus driver for Chenango County Transit in Norwich for several years. Moving to the Binghamton area with his family 5 years ago, Ron was currently a transportation driver for Elizabeth Church Manor in Binghamton.

I just heard about Ron's passing. We worked together at FEN, and I was very saddened to hear the news. Ron used to sing "Amy" by the Pure Prairie League to me all the time, and I loved joking around with him. I remember bringing him donuts to work for his 50th not that long ago....he was really a great guy and I am truly sorry for your loss.
