The Brown Family
Having known Ron for 30+ years I consider him a good friend and community minded leader. Never concerned with giving his time toward worthwhile projects. As a fellow AMBUC I found him always willing to help, filled with good ideas and always diligent in seeing the Benefactors of our hard earned charity events received their buck!
He was a Champ in many ways and you can be proud of his legacy. He will be missed!
God Bless and be with You All

Dear Brown Family, Ron was our insurance agent for at least 25 maybe 30 years, and we will miss him very much. He was a very kind man. We pray for you and know that you too will miss him more than we know. God bless you!

Dear Barbara, What a kind man Ron was. Ned and I are sorry to hear of his death. He did so much for his ball players. Tanner not only learned ball skills but many life skills from Jasons and Darins father. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Karol and Ned Sandlin

Barbara and Family,

When Jill and Darin married we felt like our family grew even more because we now were connected through their marriage and love. Since then you and Ron have welcomed us into your home, invited us to holidays and celebrations, and treated us like family. We are grateful to have known and been touched by Ron. His legacy lives on through is children and grandchildren and reflects what an honorable, loving, and gentle man he was. May he rest in peace and may God grant you peace and comfort at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Barbara and all, Ron's life was blessed by you; he helped teach me that Life Is Good... but that doesn't mean easy! Knew him 30+ years: Chamber, AMBUCS & etc., most of all Scouting. He is missed already! God rest you, merry gentleman. Amen.

Ron taught the troop that the truth matters and self respect comes from being an honest and caring individual. Ron set a great example of how an honorable man should behave. He was a great leader for Jack to emulate.

Barb and Family:

My deepest sympathy, thoughts, prayers & love go to all of you at this most difficult time. I only wish I could be there with you tomorrow and Wednesday. I met Ron during our Freshman year at Bowling Green. We roomed together our Junior & Senior years there. Although we have been seperated by distance Ron has been a very special friend (and always will be). I really enjoyed sharing stories of family, baseball & BG sports by email and telephone. There are lots of stories to be told about our days at BG. My hope is that some day we can all be together so I can regale you with exagerated tales of our exploits.

May God bless and comfort you with the knowledge that Ron is watching over you.
