I cannot tell you how sad I was to hear this terrible news. Ron was a very special person to me and my family. He was a very loving, caring person who was always there when we needed him. His sense of humor carried me through many hard times in my life. My children, Christina, Paula and Tim including myself will always have a special place in our hearts for Ron. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

To the Rea Family, Judy & Family
You are in our thoughts and prayers. Ronnie was not only a friend, but he was family too me! I will always remember all the good time we had when I worked with him during his Browns Crossing days. I too grew up in Coxsackie when Ronnie was Chief of Police there, we had many talks about my career path and Ronnie was very instrumental in helping my make my decision to become a Police Officer in Athens, and then later on becoming a Chief of Police myself in Philmont NY.
R.I.P. Ronnie, I love you and will miss you greatly!

ronny was one of the nicest people I have ever met. we started the band Backdraft together years ago. we had a running joke that we were twins. the funny part was that he was 6'7" and I was 5' 7". I loved him as a brother. He always had a great sense of humor and loved to entertain the crowd. I 've thought about him alot even though we had great distances between us. R.I.P my friend.

I was a young teenager when I first listened to Ronnie playing in his band behind the Coxsackie Post Office. I still remember how good they sound. And remembering him as a policeman for Coxsackie I thought he was the coolest young cop the town had then. He was also a fine policeman and knew most of the young kids personally in the town. Ronnie must have been a fine family man cause he was just a fine person by nature. Our condolences to his family and friends. May he rest at peace and my you all have Gods comforting arms embrace you.
April 18, 2013
