I had the pleasure of working with Ron for several years while he was an Animal Control Officer for the City of Springfield. No matter the situation or the case we were working on he always treated everyone with respect. A true gentleman that will be missed by all, keeping his family both blood and badge close in my thoughts.

You know in the first few minutes when you meet someone what kind of person they are. 30 years ago I met this man who treated me as if he knew me forever. The biggest and kindest heart one could ask for. Always gave me respect as I did him. I will miss my friend until i see him again. God bless his family.
