Ron had a great sense of humor and quick wit. He loved to laugh. He loved his family and rejoiced in taunting them.
Ron will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Ron is survived by two sisters and one brother; Barbara Roberts (Howard), Reed Bateman (Charlotte) and Marlene Sullivan (Kelly). Preceded in death by his parents, and brothers, Lee, Wayne, Blaine, and Gary.
