Ron it's been a year since you left us. Everyone tells me it will get better as time goes by, I'm sorry but I find that hard to believe. Life is so hard without you. Todd is my rock, I couldn't function without him and I am so thankful I have him. You'd be so proud of him. I'll love you forever and never stop missing you. Your in my thoughts and prayers always, Pat
It has been a year now dad and it still is kinda hard to believe. We loved the time we had and enjoy the memories.
Love and miss you dad.
Stopped by today and saw that mom left some Halloween stuff for you and Grandma. Your favorite Holiday.. Love you dad..
Thinking of you. Miss you pops.
Ron, I spent the week at Les/Dinah's cabin with Timm and all the grandchildren, except Blaise, he had to work. He takes after grandpa. We had a fun week, but it wasn't the same without your wittiness and helping hand. We thought of you daily and wished you were there. Your in our thoughts and prayers. We love and miss you terribly. Pat
Even though my message to you on your birthday was rejected for some reason, I was with you, as I'll always be. I think about every day and miss you more as the days go by. I keep thinking you'll come walking in the door from your Mothers,that this is all a bad dream. I know your with us everyday in spirit and I give thanks for all the wonderful memories. Sydney and I talk to you everyday, and we all miss you terribly.
Until were together again,
I'll love you forever,
Ron: I miss you, not a day goes by that I
don't think about you. You will always be with me. I love you.
Well grandpa I love and miss you so very much.. My 18th birthday and prom has come and gone without you there to see me.. I graduate in 5 days and you won't be there with me either... I know you will be in spirt, but I want to see you and hug you forever and never let go.. You are the best grandpa anyone could ever wish for! You mean the absolute world to me grandpa.. We all need your incredibly funny sence of humor to make us smile and laugh, we need your smart advice and we need your awesome stories, because no one can tell them like you.. I will always miss you and I will think of you everyday. Happy Birthday grandpa, I love you the most! I will see you again. Love, the Prettiest Girl in Big Lake<3
It is an hour away from your 67 birthday dad. We miss you terribly and still have questions. All the guys had a good time playing poker at the cabin. It was different without your play by play recap of most hands. I love you and will always be proud to call you dad.
Going on 5 months now dad. I still struggle trying to make sense of everything. I miss you and think about you quite often. I love you.
My uncle Ron was a gift to our family. I knew him briefly but the love and exceptance he expressed was worth a lifetime of memories! Broken hearted feelings for aunt Pat and family could never be expressed in words. Rest in peace uncle.
Dear Pat and Family I am so saddened over Ron's passing. Pat seeing you and Ron at the Casino and how happy you both where together. Not many people have a marriage like you two had. Gary and I really liked Ron, He was a gift to everyone he met. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Pat, Todd, Timm and Family.
I am so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. I pray that happy memories sustain you in your time of loss, along with the knowledge that we'll all be reunited one day, with the Lord.
I knew Ron while working alongside him at American Spirit Graphics. He was my supervisor for a time and he helped train me. Ron and I talked about politics and our military service, which was fun, but he mostly talked about his family. I know he loved his wife and mother an awful lot, along with his boys and his grandchildren.
While I worked with many people through my career in printing, only a handful made an impression on me the way Ron did! I will miss his guidance and his passion for work, life and his family. Until we meet again, dear friend...
I already miss you uncle Bucky. I'll always remember when I was little you would dress up like Santa and I was always the first one to sit in your lap. You would give me a big hug and tell me you love me. I'm grateful the last couple weeks great grandma was with us I got to spend everyday with you and grandma. Love you
I don't know what to say. And if I say something it makes this true. I can't believe I will never see or hear your voice again. You were an amazing man. You were so funny, kind, caring and loving. You were a great father-in-law and grandpa to the kids. Thank you for being the person you were and giving me and my family a lifetime of fond memories. You will never be forgotten.
Pat, Todd,Timm and Family.
So very sorry for your loss, Ron was an amazing unique man, who truly love his family. You will be missed uncle Bucky.
Sorry to hear of Rons passing. He visited exxon on a regular basis. He will be missed greatly around the store. A visit didn't go by with out smiles and laughter.
I just found out this morning about Ron's passing.
You and your family have my deepest sympathy, You are in my thoughts and prayers. Robin Dickey.
So sorry for your loss Todd and Tim. I remember your dad pretty well, seemed like a great guy.
You were the worlds greatest grandpa. You were funny, loving and a joy to be around. I enjoyed all the wonderful stories, and I will miss you so much.
the first time i met ron was at a medtronic xmas party. i sat down next to him not knowing who he was or with he started to give me the 3rd degree about how to invest my money and were.. i will never forget that day and that was 16 years ago.... going to miss you..
Thanks dad for all the years of solid family times, also for being my daddy till the day you died.
Pat, Timm and Todd,
Uncle Buckey will be miss greatly. There are no words when a loss occurs so young and so quickly. Please remember all the amazing memories you had and celebrate his loving life. Stay strong and support each other.
I met Ron when I came up to visit Minnesota for the first time. I was only able to stay a week, but in first meeting him he was one of the kindest people I have ever met
Pat and family,
I'm so sorry to hear about Ron. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Pat and family~ Cherish Ron's life with fond memories. Thinking and praying for everyone.
Pat and Family, so sorry to hear about the death of Ron. It was so great talking to you all at John's funeral; Ron seemed so happy and at peace. May his memories heal and help you find peace. God bless. Debby
we send our deepest smpathy to you and your family.
Pat, Todd, and Timm,
Uncle Buckey was the best, all the times at the lake for the fourth or at Judy's, all the families together, it was awesome, and memories I will never forget and cherish.
Ron was a genuine, kind, man and he was one of a kind. Loved listening to him go off about politics.
He will be missed, but he will make sure the others are kept in line, Jeff and Tanner need that.
WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chad, Tearinie, Jorden, Alex, Mitchell, Lauryn, and Jaidan
oh grandpa...where do I begin. Words cant describe how much everyone loves you. You were always there for us grand kids. Im gonna miss you yelling at the TV, wanting to mow the lawn almost everyday, but most of all hearing your voice. Hearing you yell "Who loves grandpa the most!?" one last time would make me the happiest person in the world. It all just seems like a nightmare that I haven't woke up from yet. Even though its hard to admit I know your in a better place now....you will always live on in our hearts ...I love you grandpa
Dear Todd and family,
We're so sorry to hear about your dad. It must be such a shock. He sounded like a wonderful dad and grandpa.
We are so sorry to hear about your Dad. We will pray for you and your family.
Greg and Eileen Soler (Lino Lakes, MN)
Joyce and Family,
Our deepest sympathy on the loss of Ron. Our prayers are with you always.
Our prayers are with you,
John and Kat Smithe
Grandpa, I love you so much! I'm not ready for you to go, I never will be. I wanted you to see me graduate, I wanted you to be there at my wedding bringing light to everyone, and I wanted you to meet your great-grandchildren. I will always be your princess. I loved your sense of humor, you always made me smile. I loved answering the phone and hearing, "Is this the prettiest girl in Big Lake?" I loved spending the night and you getting up in the middle of the night drinking milk or coffee in your underwear! There is so much more I will miss grandpa! You were much to young to go. I know you will always be with me and watching over me. I will see you again. I love you.
Love you Grandpa. I will miss all the good times we had and all the wisdom and story's you handed down to me. Most importantly I will miss you. I'm proud to be your grandson.
My heart goes out to you at this time, and the days ahead, Ron was a wonderful man, and will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the famly with this second loss in such a very short time. Larry and Helen Hunt
Pat and family. I am so sorry to hear about Ron. I can't believe it! You are in my thoughts and prayers. Know that there are many thinking of you at this time.
This is a shock. I just played cards with Ron last week. I did not know him long, but enjoyed his company. My condolences to his family.
This candle will burn in your memory forever. I can not believe that this is real. Sorry to all of you for your losses in the last month. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
I just want everyone in Ron's family to know that he was a great man full of passion and an opinion that I always respected. He loved his family and his country. He was great to work with at ASG. Peace to you all.
Pat, so sorry to hear this about Ron. Stay strong and know that you are in my prayers.
Pat, Todd, Timm;
I am so very sorry. I know this is a very hard time for your family, our family. Uncle Bucky was "one of a kind". How lucky for us to be able to have the love he always was so willing to show us. Please know we are here for you. We love you all very much!
Pamela and Family
I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. My prayers are with you all.
Dear Pat and family.....I was deeply saddened to learn of Ron's passing. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you. I will keep you all in my prayers during this difficult time.
God Bless you all! The kindness and honesty and friendliness that Ron showed us when we went to a garage sale this last May was very special. We we were buying something and wondering if it worked. He gave us his number and said to call if it didn't. He didn't know us I don't think. It touched my two young ones and me. It showed my kids honesty and integrity. Thanks Ron. You are in our prayers! God Bless your Soul and your family. I heard thru our Church (St Paul's)and I was like that's the guy. Marian and kids
Ron its been years since I last saw you but I will never forget how loving and the fun times. Your a great grandfather and talk radio will never be the same. The world will be little less interesting with you in heaven. From Mary poppy, gigi
Nybergs: I am very sorry for your loss, I will keep all of you in my thoughts during this difficult time.
It's been many years since I last saw Ron,our families grew up together in the old neighborhood (S.E. Mpls.),he hung out at the Poets house,& we at Beaula's.My condolances to the family,and hello to Judy,Joice,Diane & Dave,sorry to hear of your mothers passing,Keith Poets-Burnsville,Mn.
I will forever miss Uncle Buck. What a wonderfully generous man! He had a way of making everyone around him feel special. He always called me "pretty lady" and told me I was his favorite "outlaw". And I am sure that he said that to all of us but he was always so sweet to me. Tom and I are thinking of Todd, Tim and Patty and all of the grandchildren. Ron loved you all so much- it was so evident how proud he was of his family. Peace be with you all.
You were one of a kind. Stories will never been told the same again. Card games will always be missing something. You were someone that I could not wait to see again. I've sat here for far too long thinking of something to put here and still am struggling to find the words. Thank you Uncle. Thank you for everything you did for all of us everyday! Thank you so much for being a part of our lives. I love you and will miss you!
Tears come to my eyes when I think of Ron and the wonderful man he was. Even my friends and family who had the chance to meet him absolutely loved him. He was so kind, giving and friendly to everyone. This world could use some more people with hearts as big as Ron's, and I am so sad that he is no longer with us. Ron, I appreciate everything you have done for me nomatter how little or trivial it may seem, and the amazing father you were to my sister. You will be missed! With Love, "The prettiest girl in Blaine"
My father was the best a son could ask for. Always putting everyone else before himself. I will miss him dearly.
Ron always called me the good grandma. He was so funny and he could really tell the stories. The last couple of years we would walk together on Halloween with the kids. He was so easy to talk to him. You be surly missed.
Oh, Uncle Bucky. So many memories, every last one filled with joy and laughter. What an amazing man that radiated pure love. The world will most certainly be less bright without him. Sad does not even describe it.
