Ron was great guy and always had a positive attidude about everything. Even in the Academy lol. He, I, and other MSP members of 53rd class hailed from western Maryland. Several times we rode back and forth on weekends together. We kept in touch after graduating in 1964 for the Academy. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. They can be very proud of his life and legacy over the years. God Bless!
