I had the pleasure of working with Ronald (whom we called Beetle Bailey), for twenty years on SD2. He was always pleasant and a good per to work with. I found him to be a dedicated officer and a good friend. The family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in remembering your father, husband and to many a great friend. I will remember his way of being able to smile, laugh and lift the spirits of others even in his darkest hours. Though he may be gone in body, his memories will live on.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting Ron, but I recently began working with his sister who shared with me the struggles Ron was facing and the love and care he was receiving from his wife, sister and family. It is obvious that he was a special man who encircled his life with special people and that is a true gift from God. I've prayed for him and the entire family and will continue to pray for you all during these dark days. Having experienced loss myself I know that laughter through tears is a beautiful way of remembering and thanking our lost loved ones as we continue here on earth. He will and is with you all each day, every moment. In you heart, in your mind and in spirit he is protecting you from Heaven. God Bless you all.
