I was so sorry to learn of Ron's death. My deepest sympathy for his wife and family. He and I were teammates on the football team at Arsenal Technical H.S. where Ron was a standout (All State), a leader of the team and a "gentle giant" (at least to our team). I know he will be missed and I will treasure my memories of our friendship.
