Ron was one of Moe's best friends from grammar school and through high school and three years at Miami U. when Ron went into the service. We kept in touch through the years and enjoyed several vacations with Ron and Char along with the Kiegers and Hannas, all high school pals. There were lots of laughs as we told stories from our school years. Ron was a good and kind person and we will miss him. Our deepest condolences to the family. Thank you for the wonderful photos you have posted. Moe and Chris Griffiths
