I was a member of the IBM SAGE 1956 class in Kingston, NY with Ron and he provided transportation from our rooming house to the training. I was 1A with Selective Service and had volunteered for the 6 months leave of absence from IBM for the USAF Aviation Cadet training and he counseled me not to go through with it (and I even visited him and his family in New Britain to meet with his friend who also advised the same thing). I completed some of the training but ended my USAF training just a bit before the end of the 6 months and returned to IBM SAGE but never had an opportunity to update Ron on my USAF experience.
Please accept my condolences to his surviving family members!

Although I didn’t know Mr. Baraglia well as he was always working hard for his family I do know that he left behind 3 of the kindest, most caring, unselfish children to carry on his legacy. I have known them for many years and love all 3 of them dearly. My prayers are with each of you. Your Mom and Dad are together again-well and whole and smiling down from a place we can only dream about. Rejoice in knowing you will all be together again one day!
