Ronnie and I worked I worked together the summer of 1968 throughout the state of Ohio doing pipeline construction. Ronnie's father had been a pipeliner and he had contacts in the business so we drove there in Ronnie's Corvair. He was gracious to offer me the chance to go with him to seek employment since I had no prospects at the time. Ronnie had just graduated from Northeast and I had one more year to graduate. We both planned to attend law school, he at LSU and I at Loyola in New Orleans. Ronnie was married to Janis Gregory at the time and was very homesick for his family during the summer , but both he and I needed to earn the money to continue our educations and he to support his family. We were working 7 days a week, 12 hours per day. Actually, Ronnie got a parts chasing job and frequently worked as much as 16 hours per day driving all over Ohio to retrieve parts for repairing equipment on the job. I worked as a laborer on a road crossing crew until I was offered a position as a welder helper for more pay. All the crew called me "Louisiana" or Cajun. They didn't recognize that I was more of a redneck than most of them. The only day off that we had that summer was July 4 when we went out to a local lake and grilled a steak for each of us. As I recall we also drank a couple adult beverages . Ronnie was a very good man who loved his family and a friend that I could always count on . Ronnie had a very high IQ but never forgot where he came from , nor thought he was better than anyone else . He loved his hometown , his hunting , all of his high school buddies and the country life. Although , I haven't had a lot of contact with Ronnie over the years, I always tried to see him when I visited the Columbia area on business or family visits. On these occasions , i found him to be the same Ronnie that I had known so many years ago whether he was wearing his judicial robe or his bluejeans . I will miss him and am saddened by his passing.
