I meet Ron along time ago when he came to work at Intergraph. Worked in the same dept. for several years. He was very smart and a pleasure to work with. One heck of a softball player. We played on the same team for years. He was a happy go lucky kind of guy, fun to be around. I will always remember our good times. Very sorry for your lose. He will be missed. God Bless.
