Ron was a great guy, a true "gentle giant," and always a ray of sunshine. He was a trusted, calming, leader on the Sinclair Campus for decades, who knew no strangers and accepted everyone. Whether it was playing Santa Claus at holiday events, or coordinating the security detail at Commencement, Ron was always a master at any challenge.

I know, through our personal conversations, how much he loved his family and the joy he experienced in raising his sons and watching them compete, grow, and mature. Some of my fondest memories of Ron are from those brief encounters, maybe in the cafeteria or a hallway, where he shared his pride and love for family.

My heart goes out to Ron's family as we grieve his loss alongside you. Just know that there are many in the community who will miss him and know that he cannot be replaced.

So sorry to hear about Ron. Prayers to Jan and the family. We all loved playing golf at the Fortner Fathers Day outings and chatting with Ron. He got things organized and made things happen. He will be missed.

Having had a severe heart attack, I know he did not suffer.

Love Bill & Deb.

Dear Janice, Chris, and Ryan,

Your husband/father was one heck of a guy. Always positive, looking for a way to play golf, watch a sporting event, or helping support Carroll Sports. Carroll was lucky to have him in the their bailiwick.

It was obvious to anyone that was close to the Adams family that the four you had fun traveling together. We're all going to join your grief in missing him but we'll always remember the rays of sunshine that he shot back.

All the best.

Tim Norbut - President - Carroll Athletic Club.

Whle Ron was a great guy to work with I also really enjoyed seeing him at Dragons and UD basketball games. As a lifelong UD bball fan I loved getting the inside scoop from him about the Flyers. And I got to introduce him to several of my sisters and both of my granddaughters at some game or another. Will miss his smiling face and laugh! Everyone who knew him will always have great memories of a great man.

I wanted to express my deepest sympathy to Ron's family . I have known Ron for many years while working for Sinclair College as an SIO. I always enjoyed his conversation and wit during our interactions. I recall seeing him only a few months ago during a trip to Lowes which was nice since we did not have to talk about work . All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless all of you and Ron.

I feel very blessed to have met Ron. I did enjoy listening to his stories, his sense
of humor and how especially proud of his family he was. Ron’s friendly warm smile and his presence in the Federal Building will be sadly missed by all.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Dave and Michelle Romano
