Memories. . .light the corners of our mind. We have so many wonderful memories of the time we shared with Ron, Patty and the entire Poljak family. We have been friends (family really) for close to fifty years. We celebrated the good times and shared the bad times but it will always be the laughter that we remember. Ron brought so much happiness and fun into our lives. He always brought joy to everything we did together. His love of life and family was incredible. We thought we would have many more happy times with Ron but God had other plans for him. Heaven has gained another musical angel. We will always have the beautiful memories of the way we were. We have loved and lost a great friend! We love you, Ron, and will miss you greatly!

Jason and I will always remember Ron for the way he took us in and loved us like family. This was especially meaningful to me as I moved from a large family in Pennsylvania to having very little family in Florida. Ron was always welcoming, always good-spirited and always willing to help and seemed to have endless energy. Some of my favorite times with him were when we would all get together for card night and he would proceed to do whatever he wanted to do with his chips and holdings despite the advice he'd get from the others at the table. He always made it fun. He made a great smoked pork butt and always said he had the best "butt" in town. We would agree. Ron's big heart leaves a very big space in many lives and he will always be missed and always loved. Rest easy with God sweet man. We love you.
