I worked at Gist Piano back in the 80's. I learned a lot there that I still use in piano work today. Ron was very particular that the restorations done in his shop we meticulous and accurate. He was THE guy to go to for piano needs. Condolences to the family.

Ronnie and I were friends at Seneca, U of L,and in Louisville. I have many happy memories of kidding with him and shared life experiences. He will be missed and my sympathy goes out to his family. BILL ANDERSON

We bought a 1920 Steinway Grand Piano from Ron Gist in 1979. He was an exceptional person & a wonderful Steinway representative. I hate to hear of his passing. My condolences to the family & Gist Piano.

RON was a special friend in high school at Seneca In 1958-1961 when he added his beautiful bass voice to the songs of the Jesters. I will always remember the great. Times we shared together. My prayers are for his family to have peace during this time of grief. God Bless You.
