Ron played softball and hunted in many states. Ron was part owner of Lansing Cottonwood Campground, director of Twin Diamonds Softball Park, president and owner of Advanced Housing Co. Inc.

Ron, his big smile and beautiful blue eyes, will be greatly missed by his family and many, many, many friends. He touched in a special way anyone he met. A memorial will be held on August 17, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Lansing Cottonwood Campgrounds on the ball diamonds. If you have a Twin Diamonds shirt, hunting camo or Detroit Tiger gear you are encouraged to wear it to the memorial service.
