to paraphrase a recent read by Erma Bombeck.
Ron speaking to St Peter upon his arrival at the pearly gates..
I have nothing left, nothing to offer, as I have used ALL of the many talents God gave me while I visited on earth.
Ron we love you and we will miss you.

Ron, Ed and I will miss you so much. I’ve known you since 1977, when Ed and I met, fell in love and met each others’ families. We have shared our memories ever since, from going on camping trips to Virginia, the births, baptisms, confirmations, weddings of our children, spending the weekends at Joyce’s and your ski house in Windham. We are so blessed to have had you in our lives. Our kids love you; you taught them so much about skiing, cars, swimming. Ed and I loved hanging out at your house discussing world events and eating all of Joyce’s delicious feasts. Thanks for being the best brother-in-law! I will always think of you when I’m solving my Sudukos!

Ron and I worked together as Air Traffic Controllers when we were young, and along with Larry formed a formidable and well respected team, as well as strong personal bonds. We all loved the ATC profession, and reveled in acquiring the immensity of technical knowledge and skills that it conveyed.

Outside of our professional careers we shared many wide-ranging mutual interests that included fast sports cars, boats, machines and tools of all manner, and especially scale model trains. Ron excelled in all of these pursuits.

Ron was a stand-up guy and my best friend for many years, and I shall miss him. Godspeed, Ron.

The "early years" late sixties - early seventies, Ron transitioned from military service (air traffic control) to the Federal Aviation Administration at New York Air Route Traffic Control Center where he trained to be a full performance Air Traffic Control Specialist on Crew 5C. At times, after our 0700-1500 tour, Ron, Bob, and I took advantage of the "Happy Hour" at the Cavalier Club. If I recall correctly, from those stops, Ron was fortunate gain the acquaintance of his spouse to be. Well done Ron! Good choice Joyce. For a time before wedding Joyce, Ron was my next door neighbor, a true friend and a better man than most. He crafted a footstool for my then apartment. Some forty or fifty years later, I still have and use it daily and because of it, I think of him from time to time. Thank you Ron from the Jez!
