With much sympathy to his family and Ellen. Ron always made me laugh with his stories and made me grateful that he was my neighbor and someone I could call friend.

I've known Ron for over 23 years. I've seen him at his best and at his worst. At his best he was inspiring. But even when he was going through tough times he was an amazing example of true optimism, always seeing the glass half full.He was supportive of others without being intrusive. He was a great salesman. You just had to beware of his bone crushing hand shake!
Ron was a giver who knew how to enjoy whatever life presented to him.
He will be truly missed.

While I only met Ron a couple of times in the last couple of years, it is clear Ron had a love of life and adventure, and boundless energy to pursue his dreams. Ron clearly had a talent for carrying a conversation, making people comfortable and sharing a laugh. Ron lived life to the fullest.

My deepest condolences. May you continue to find comfort from family and friends at this time of great sorrow. And may you find comfort in knowing that when God restores Paradise, he will undo all causes of suffering. (Ps 37:11) Then our tears of sorrow will become tears of great joy.
