I first meet Ronny in 1980 under circumstance we both wished had been different.
Yet from the first day I meet Ronny to the last, which was at the Carwash just a couple of weeks ago, he was still the same Ronny I meet over 30 years ago, mustache and all...When Ronny smiled he made you smile...Fair, honest, and most of all my Uncle Ronny was Noble in character....I witnessed first hand when others tested his patience and watched as he taught them humbly that it was in everybody's best interest not to....
We stood side by side the day the first born of pop's and Ma's was laid to rest..
I'll never forget this man,
He was one of the good guy's......
