To The Santo Family,
Please accept my late condolences. Ron was a great man, athlete and a brodcaster for his home team. Was not able to get an autograph, but was able to meet and talk to some of his old team mates. Many great stories will be remembered.

To the family of Ron: Many a night my husband and I would listen to the CUBS game in our loft in the U P of Michigan. We could never get the game until about the third inning, as we waited for airways to clear. The best part about the wait was that we knew Ron would be there. We lived in Chicago during the time he played and he deserved to be in the Hall of Fame. We will miss him this summer. He will remain a treasured memory.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend. I felt like I knew him from listening to Pat and Ron call the Cubs games. I bought a sport sync radio just so I could listen to them instead of the TV for every game. He will be greatly missed and impossible to replace. May the Lord bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand during this difficult time.

To the family of Ron Santo,
Condolences on your loss. You can see when you watch the DVD of This Old Cub that he was a great husband, father, and grandfather. I was so happy that he was able to be there for Jeff at his wedding in October. I just read of his last “gift” to you all … he waited for you to leave the room to pass on. I know you will miss him deeply.
Thank you for sharing him with us Cubs fans and players all these years. I was honored to finally meet him in March 2010 at his last Spring Training camp. I was one who waited in line as we crept up the stairs to the broadcast booth at Ho Ho Kam Park where he was signing autographs. I was able to tell him what millions of fans already have; That he was my favorite cub, an inspiration to us all as a player and champion of juvenile diabetes, and we love to hear him on the radio.
Cliché, yes, but he was the heart and soul of the Cubs. In recent years, we knew that every year we could listen to Ron was a gift from God. We will find a way to carry on, but the Cubs nation will not be the same. I believe he WILL be with us in spirit as are my parents and millions of other Cubs fans who have gone to those “heavenly bleachers” before him. His dream was for the Cubs to win it all… well, more tears will be shed in his honor than for any other reason when the Cubs do win the World Series. Go Cubs!
Know that there are Cubs fans across the world, living in every country, who are praying for you. God Bless you and yours.

To the family of Ron,
I remember growing up (on the north side, Lake County)and listening to him with Harry Carry when they would talk during the Cubs Games. They were entertaining.
He will be missed by all of his fans, friends and family. When he wakes up to a world where there will be no sickness (Revelation 21:3,4), he will be either play baseball with his teammates or commentary with Harry Carry.

Whether watching Ron play, hearing him broadcast, or seeing him at the ballpark since I became an usher three years ago..it was an honor to witness him at all levels of his great baseball life...he will be missed....

Dear Vickie: I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. It's been sometime (about 25 years) since we went out to dinner. Ron was such a great guy and so much fun to be around. Always made you laugh and always concerned about the other guy. I used to love to hear the stories Richard would tell about Ron and Beck when he was with them in the 1960"s and 70's. Baseball, the travel agency, the pizza business etc. They all really loved life and Ron was almost bigger than life. My heart goes out to you. Sincerely Mrs. Richard Harczak

My sincere condolances to the Santo family. Have been a #10 and Cub fan since 1963 when I saw my first major league game at Wrigley (in color) from behind the Cubs dugout. Ron YOU ARE "HALL OF FAME" in my book
