Ron was a great friend throughout our adolescent school years in Washburn. We reconnected through email and an occasional call in recent years. He was a great guy from a good family. Ron couldn’t make our 50th reunion so we got him on the phone and all of us lined up to take turns talking with him. It was a beautiful evening shared with old friends. Godspeed Ron... we’ll miss you!

I have fond memories of your family in Becket. I was very sorry to hear of Ron's passing.

Today, I visited Keith's grave with Nathan Hanford. We were both classmates of his, and have never forgotten him. We have met up there around this time for some years, whenever it's been possible, to remember him and plant flowers. It was especially sad today, with Ron's passing, and we were both thinking of the whole family and sending love. I'm sharing a photo Nathan took, of me and my son Isaac watering the flowers. It was beautiful and sunny.

Ron was a kind man and good friend of my parents Darlene and Bruce. My condolences to Chiefie, Wendy, and the whole family.

Love, Juliane

During the years Ron was the caretaker at camp watitoh, I hitched on in my high school years as a maintenance worker and dish washer during the summers. I took a strong liking to Ron, Cheifie, Wendy and Keith. It was all a great and positive experience. I learned a lot from Ron, he was a great man, a great boss, a great influence and friend. The whole family was.
It still hurts my heart to have been there when such a tragic accident took Keith. More than ever I can see the courage it took to keep these great people smiling and enduring. Thankyou to the Fox family, you are truly the best.
Rest in peace Ron, highest respects.

The candle holders were passed down to me some months ago. They were lit in rememembrance of Ron and Keith.

Chiefie, many blessings to you and your daughter and granddaughter. We are so sorry that Ronnie's life has ended, but do realize that your 50+ years together have given you wonderful memories for your treasure trove to be filled to overflowing. What a wonderful display of pictures.
Ron was a classmate at Washburn High School, having come from Perham schools. He and Kenny Snowman liked to keep Miss Hodgdon's freshman English class upbeat, for certain.
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, as you gather with family and friends this Tuesday. Remember that "He's Only a Prayer Away," ready to comfort and see you through the weeks ahead. ~~~~~Sharon and Harry Rideout

I am a cousin of Ron's that still lives in his hometown. The last time I saw Ron was in the late 60's, when my parents Ken and Verdie Fox were in western Massachusetts, and we visited Ron and his family in New Hampshire (New York? Vermont? - somewhere in that area).
I remember him running to help when I was a little child and fell out of our slowly moving car as it left his driveway - obviously I had neglected to latch the door. We all lived on the same quiet farm road, so there was no harm done, but he sure moved quickly that day!
I am so sorry to hear about Ron. My parents are still living, 91 and 89 years of age, and I will let them know about Ron's passing.
Our condolences to all of Ron's family - Charlotte Fox Griffin
