Ron was an inspiration to me and my brother and sister. He was our grandfather. I never got to spend a lot of time with him but when we were together, those times were golden. Rest in peace grandfather. I'll see you in Heaven.

Ron was my father, but more than that he was my best friend. he guided me through life and all the obstacles. He was able to do this because he was a great cop. trained in the military trained on the police force and also all around Great people person he could read people better than anyone I had ever known. I could never thank him for all the wisdom he taught me through the years all the grate values to. And more than anything the sense of value to protect my family. Thanks dad for teaching me to always keep my eyes open and never let my guard down. To one of the greatest men My father and one of the best cops I've ever known love you dad.
