I knew Ron as my platoon leader in the 199th inf A co 4/12. The last time I saw him was on Feb.6th 1967.Lt Paramore was severly wounded that day.But he crawled through the mud trying to keep the survivors of our platoon fighting. He tried to keep us safe. We met again at our 2012 reunion at San Antonio. Well I will miss him .We were brothers.We went to war together.

Judy and Family, was so sad to hear about Ronnie. He was always special to me, we had a great time growing up in the 50's. He is reunited now with Family and Friends in Heaven and the Heavens couldn't be any brighter with his presence...So many there to meet him.

Dear Judy and family,

I just learned that Ronnie was no longer with us and am deeply saddened by his passing. My heart and prayers go out to the Paramore family. I feel so fortunate to have spent time with him last year at the 199th Brigade reunion in San Antonio after many years of being apart. We truly forged a strong bond while serving as young lieutenants in the Army. We went through Airborne and Ranger school together and then served together in Company A 4/12 Infantry of the 199th Brigade as it trained for Vietnam and then after it deployed to Vietnam. As I write this, I remember the tears I shed when we hugged the day he was wounded. We were young brothers in arms and I was so proud of him. He was a true soldier and a great friend! I just wish we could have spent more time together prior to seeing each other last year. We had stayed in touch since last year and had talked about doing just that. I know he is in a wonderful place now and I thank God for bringing us back together again. I will miss him!

Respectfully yours,

Dean Greenwood
