He was a fine teacher and a great person. In the classroom he was mostly serious, but often let down his guard and displayed his soft side and sense of humor.

Ken was my neighbor and father of Ken and Billy- my friends. He was the personification of Quiet, Dignity and Grace.

My husband Hal and Ronnie were colleagues and good friends in New Utrecht HS. Just spoke to my son Richard and he too knew Ronnie from night school, where he had taught one year.
The uncanny thing is that this past Friday eve, I decided to "clean up" Hal's heavy folder of pictures and memories that the kids and grands had been looking at this week, when they came in for the holidays.
I found something I hadn't noticed before! It is a Pink colored pamphlet for the "Testimonial Dinner in Honor of Ronald Kronheim", with two $1,000 bills stapled to it and with Ronnie's picture on the bills! Inside the list of all the members of the Committee, and the program. Hal was listed as the Master of Mirth. Hal is gone exactly 14 years... Ronnie and Hal are together again!!! From all the times Hal spoke of Ronnie, it was always with a smile and about how nice he was.
So sorry about your loss, but your dad and grandpa spread a lot of joy among all who knew him. May he rest in peace.
Love, Gladys
