I believe Ron was the most dedicated person to provide the youth of Beech Grove the best little league that we could have. Ron was a big part in helping to build the little league at its present location. I will miss him and so will many others that knew him. As long as there is a little league we will alway see his name on the entry into the the diamonds. God did bless him and all that had the pleasure to know him.

We were cousins . . . This past year my cousin Linda and I went to visit and share stories of their youth. He spoke highly of his children and his wife. I learned a lot that day about him and am deeply saddened to not have had more time to make more memories with him; you see I was very young when I first met him. The old ways were to be seen and not heard. Well we changed all that with a visit . . you will be greatly missed.

I’m not sure I could find just one memory to share having known Ron for 40+ years of my life! He was my best friends dad and was always kind when I was around, EXTREMELY funny and loved to joke around. I always respected the time and effort he put into the BGLL and I feel he passed that a long to many who came into the league. He will be missed by many, but I know he is now rejoicing and dancing around heaven with his beautiful wife Linda and my sweet Lisa. Godspeed Ron and Rest In Peace

I have fond memories of my time on the BGLL board when Ron was president. He was always upbeat and fair when dealing with situations and always easy to get along with. You will be missed. Rest In Peace Ron.
