I am very sorry for the loss of such a kind, funny, thoughtful and caring person. I worked with Ron at Bryan for several years and also golfed with him when we worked together and I remember how proud he was of his family and how family was the most important thing in his life. I also remember that Ron had a very strong faith and he lived his life according to his beliefs.
Please know that I and many others share in your feelings of loss and I hope as family you can find peace in how he lived his life and cared about you.

I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a friend to everyone. What a great loss to friends & family. I pray for comfort & peace to the family.
I met Ron several years ago through business interactions at Kenl Inn. I did not know him well, but the brief time I spent with him has left a lasting impression. I admired his leadership and character the most – a man I would follow into battle. Rest In Peace, Ron – you are in a much better place now. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.
