Ron was a great friend and mentor. I enjoyed my visits with Ron and Jane when work would put me in Peoria. During our visits the hours would go by like minutes whether in Peoria or Hershy PA. I will miss you Ron and I will never forget all the many things you did for our great hobby. Ron Ehrenhofer, Technical Chairman, Model A Restorers Club
