Back in 1967/68' Ron Weaver was my painting Prof at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Wright State was in its infancy, but growing fast. Barry Gelt was the head of the Fine Arts Department, along with Ray Must. Barry was an incredible teacher as was Ray Must. Ron joined them in 1967 along with his wife, Maurine, who audited classes along with the rest of us. I loved them both as mentors and as friends for the brief time they were here, and am so saddened to hear of Ron's passing away. When they left Ohio for greener pastures in NJ, they were only weeks away from the arrival of their daughter, Jennifer. Even though nearly 46 years have passed since I saw them last, I feel privileged to have had Ron as my teacher and Maurine as a friend and fellow classmate.
