I worked with Ron at Hertz for several years. When Hertz reorganized and Data was added to my responsibilities, Ron was so helpful and gracious to teach me all the things I needed to know. He was so patient and kind and joked about my coming to his desk and always saying "Ron, can I ask you a question?" He was a great guy and my condolences to his family for their loss.

Ron was my late mother’s life partner Paulette Alexander. Mom and Ron dated for over a decade. Ron was like a dad to my brother, Jason and I. Also, a grandpa to my children. We will miss you Ron! I will miss our talks over the phone. Fly high and that you may rest easy. I take comfort knowing that you and mom are back together. Love you always, Susan

I worked with Ron for over 25 years. I cannot think of a time that he did not stop to help me with a work-related issue or a car that would not start in the parking lot. He was that kind of guy...always willing to help. He made me feel like family and not just a co-worker. I have very fond memories of him and will miss him greatly. My sincerest condolences to the family.
