He was overjoyed with the recent addition of his great grandson, John Michael.

Ron was a devout Catholic and devoted to his family. He loved to amuse/pester Lucille and his children with his great sense of humor, to travel throughout the United States and Canada on many family vacations and to just spend time with his family as often as he could.
