Bonnie and I always considered Ron to be a great friend. We are terribly saddened at his loss. We shot with Ron often, and frequently had dinner with Ron and Shela afterward. We will miss him. Rest in peace, Ron. You have earned it.

Al though I had not known Ron but a few years, I all ways liked him and thought of him as an upright person.
I will remember the family in prayer and pray for the "peace that passes all understanding".

I shot with and against Ron for years at PHA. He was always a great sportsmen win or lose. It's a real tragedy that Ron never got to enjoy the retirement he worked so hard for. RIP Ron... you will be missed and long remembered my friend.
