Not sure what to say?

Dear Mckenzie Family,
I first met Ron when he came home from school with my brother
Joe Mulcahey. I am not sure if it was grade school first but they took the same streetcar to DeLasalle high school . Ron became a good friend to me and was always willing to be my date at a holy Angels function. We had wonderful times in those years . Ann and I went to grade school together and his sister Jan I also knew.
When they moved from MPLS I was sorry to see them leave. Ron was very...

we send our thoughts and prayers to Angela, Greg and Paul. Your parents were good friends of ours. May they rest in peace.

I worked with Ron at the Press-Gazette. I remember him for his humor and fun and miss that. I have him in my thoughts and prayers. Truly one of the good guys!

Dear Angela, Ron Paul and Greg and families,

I am deeply saddened by your dad's passing and my dad is filled with sorrow. I know that this is the cycle of life and I know that your dad is in a beautiful place with your mom and Mark, but I also know how heavy your hearts are.

It seems like yesterday that we moved in next door and I can hardly believe...

Rest in Peace Dad. You're my hero!

Some of our best memories included time together on Lake Gogebic, where Ann's had a cabin(I believe they still have the place). We were all married and had children over the years. Though separated when Ron and Ann moved to GB, we kept in contact and saw them,Ron after Ann's passing, with too...

Ron was a delightful guy and will be missed by many, many friends.

Ron and I became close friends during our Air Force time at Donaldson AFB, Greenville, SC. We stayed in touch and he visited here several times in recent years and I spent a week with him in 2010 while attending the Oshkosh Air Show. A witty, wonderful guy - he will be missed very much.
