Ron 12 days after his cataract removal surgery at Alaska Lasik & Cataract Center. He had 20/20 vision in both eyes for 4 years. I took him into the appt, picked him up and brought him back to work. Where does he go after leaving his store? He didn't know but I followed him. I had a funny feeling, then as I'm leaving too, I see him pass the street he normally turns on to go home. I drive down Tudor behind him a few cars going west to finally find him behind his old store struggling with a mattress he was getting out of the Mattress Ranch business' dumpster lol. I jump out and help him pick up the other side of it and put it in the back of his truck. I said "Dad! You're not supposed to be lifting heavy things for at least a week after surgery! You could rip the stitches out!" Haha he didn't see anything wrong with what he was doing, even afterwards. Course, nothing happened but probably because I helped him load that mattress lol. A goofy and stubborn man who thought he was made of steel. Yes, but in a different way, Pops ♡ I love and miss you so much

On June 16, 1996 I had sent in a surprise for my Dad Ron to see in the Anchorage Daily Newspaper for Father's Day, because I knew he always had the paper delivered to him everyday for many-many years, even up until the last day he was here: June 8, 2017, as I had to turn off his subscription myself. I was 5, and he just turned 39 on June 14, 1976 two days prior. In '96 when this was posted in the paper, I just turned 25, one week before. This is the actual paper he was delivered to his shop's front door, my Dad saved it. It was a nice surprise to see this newspaper within his things. Seeing this now, after so many years, meant I was special to him too. I just wish I could see him drinking his Folger's instant coffee w/just creamer reading his paper at his desk again. In my mind my Dad is alive and well, I am so thankful for that.

Ron and daughter Susan being the silly Geminis they are riding on the teeter totter in Red Run Park. We went for an 11-day vacation/visit to see Grandma (Dad's mom, Bernadean) and to meet the rest of his side of the family. We stayed at his brother Marvin's trailer on a big sized lot. What a beautiful place his was, the whole state really. (minus the cow pie scent when driving by the countless farms we seen while there haha) :) May 11th - 22nd, 1995 in Waynesboro, PA

Greatest grandpa any child could want. He put up with us and bugged a lot over the years. Thankful for his patience, guidance, generosity, understanding and especially his genuine love.

A billion cherished moments of time with my dad, Ron. The best father a girl could have. I am so thankful and fortunate to have shared my life with him. I can't even put into words what this man meant to me. Proud to say Ron is my dad. I sure miss him. He is alive in my mind, and I'm so thankful beyond belief for that. Bittersweet ♥

My sympathy goes out to the family during your time of grief. May God's loving-kindness comfort you and help you through this difficult time (Psalm 119:50,76).
