Where to start … I've known Ron since the early 80's. How early, I'm not quite sure, but February of 1980 would have been our first opportunity to meet. One very special memory was when he sold me his "old black truck". That was probably around 1990. It served him well, and "retired" to work for me until I sold it, when I bought another Schaffner truck, from his brother, Ralph.
Our friendship included his sharing his adventures with Charlene including but not limited to "The Park Ranger" and the southern states cross country bike tour she lend and he "worked".
Ron's visits were always with a purpose, but the length of the visit depended upon how many other activities were on that day's agenda.
I have recently retired, but he was my role model. He never retired (that I could tell). He always was doing something that looked like work, but never with a frenzy to get it done. I will forever try to emulate that gift.

I'm going to miss him …

I'm forever honored and touched having met Ron & Char. My prayers are abundant, that our Lord comforts Charlene. Sadly missed until we meet again.
Amen.

I had the pleasure of bowling in a league that Ron bowled in back in the early 70's. He was an outstanding bowler and a caring person. I always enjoyed competing against him. May he rest in peace.

Dear Charlene,
We remember how you welcomed us and Ron gave us a great tour of the beautiful cars a few years ago when we were bicycling past your home. May the love you shared with Ron comfort you. May Ron's memory be for a blessing.
peace and friendship,
Al Moore & Melodee Kornacker
