Ronald was my elementary school principal at Patton in Roseville, Michigan. He was very kind and patient, I always looked forward to visiting his 'Magic Chicken' for a gift or treat every birthday, thanks for that every year.

He was my fourth grade teacher...and the best teacher I’ve ever had.

Ron was my first Principal at Patton Elementary! I came in for an interview, and he chose me for an opening at his school. I worked in Roseville for 30 years in many different schools, but he was the best Principal I ever had throughout all my teaching years. May he “Rest In Peace in God’s Hands”! He will be missed!

Mr MacIntyre was my sixth grade teacher. When he would ask what we did on Sunday and we would say we went over our Grandmas he would ask Did we go by helicopter or plane? So with a huge sigh we would correct it to we went" to "our Grandmas house. That year they introduced the "new" math and we had to learn the prime numbers up to 100. He was a great teacher and made learning fun.

Mr. MacIntrye was my sixth grade teacher at Fountain Elementary. He was by far one of the most influential and memorable teachers in my life. I loved Mr MacIntrye! He was so kind and made learning fun. He once told me I could do anything I dreamt about. He taught us some fun learning techniques that I still use today. I just thought of him the other day and wondered where he was. Best Teacher and fine man. Rest In Peace my dear Mentor ♥️
