Ron was my beloved brother-in-law and I’ll miss him, his big heart and good cheer. Since I first met Ron, when I was a young girl in grade school and he started dating my beautiful older sister Marlene, I always thought of him as dashing and the epitome of cool. He reminded me of James Bond 007. Handsome, suave, immensely competent at whatever he did. No matter how hard the task, he did it with apparent ease and style. He drove Corvettes, piloted speed boats, did the powerful butterfly stroke in the pool. Blonde hair slicked back and dressed impeccably. 

Ron knew how to have fun and bring a family together by creating good times. I always enjoyed and am grateful for how Ron and Marlene have hosted lively parties throughout the years for the whole Kogut family. The family that plays together stays together and Ron and Marlene provided those happy and relaxed gatherings that acted as a glue bonding together me, my brothers and sisters and our families. He knew how to toss a terrific party.

I picture Ron in Milford at his grill cooking up heaps of delicious food poolside for annual Father’s Day bashes. At his home up north generously hosting crowds of us for July 4th festivities. We’d waterski, boat ride to the sandbar, and blast off fireworks.

He loved and was devoted to his family and has left all of us lucky enough to know him many wonderful memories.
