Our hearts goes out to all of the family. Ron was a big man in stature, but even bigger in character, heart and strength. This gentle giant gave us all a good reason to look up.
Hold on tightly to the memories created with Ron and smile as you gaze up at the stars at night. His will be that large star shining the biggest and brightest.
Sending our love and hugs,
Ben and Patty (Sink) Browning

My sincere sympathy, Diane and family. I remember Ron well. His Dad built my parents home on SR 49 S over 60 years ago. He was in school with my brother too. And remember you fondly from the bank. God Bless.
