To the family and friends - sharing a moment and a memory of Ron. Not all of these messages are sad. Enjoy the laugh.

Ron was a 'dad' to me when we were young, and with that said, I'll share this truly "inspiring" story. He truly inspired me one day when Dean and I were about 6 maybe 7 years old, doing what boys due best. Yes, we were shooting bow and arrows inside of Robinson Park. Why?...no no no, its Why NOT? With acute skill shooting with a bow for the first time, Dean and I (which really means I) shot the green station wagon's roof from about one block away while standing inside of Robinson Park. The car was parked outside the house on Robinson Street and Ron was outside in the front yard. So the car and Ron were only about 15 yards apart. The arrow flew through the air from what Dean told me to do - only pull back a little, he said. That's not what happened. I took a full draw on the bow string and let it loose. The arrow landed and was a precision hit only a marksman could make. And with that arrow sticking out of the roof of his car, Ron proceeded to inspire me with said arrow that day. I'm about in tears laughing at this now, but at that time, wow, there was a lot of inspiration shown by Ron. Needless to say, not much was left of bow, arrow, or me....and Dean. I believe that was one of the several times where 'both' my dads inspired me that day. With those laughs, that's what I remember most about Ron, the laughs... and lest we forget Ron on a hot summer day - running at a full sprint - chasing Duke the beloved family dog, who was pulling his entire dog house down Robinson street chasing both Mary Jo and Angela (my sister) on their bikes. That was the first time I laughed so hard I was crying. Ron felt inspired that day too, but he couldn't hardly breath let alone chase down a young speedster who was laughing at both him and Duke. Duke was inspired that day, to much chagrin of 4 kids watching and laughing so hard we were crying.
Yes, that was fun to type.
Enjoy Heaven Ron. See you when I get there.
