A true gentleman and kind person. An asset Illinois Racing for many years RIP

There's a part of Ron that's missing from his obituary. Ron loved horse racing! Ron owned several race horses over the years. Ron loved Arlington Park! He spent many weekends there handicapping the horses and playing cards in the jocks room. He had many many friends at the track. Everyone loved Ron. My husband and I had the great pleasure of training one of Ron's horses, Bradley Brave, which he also bred. My husband and I become great friends with Ron. We loved Ron and he will be greatly missed.

Great guy, my pledge father and friend.

Our condolences to the family and may our brother Ron find his well deserved rest.

I will always remember Ron from my days at the Bradley Alumni Office...I enjoyed our many conversations and his stories. I will be in Chicago this weekend and will not be able to attend his celebration of life, but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all those who knew and loved him.

My sincere condolences to the family may you find comfort in the God of all comfort during this difficult time.
