I will never forget this wonderful and interesting man. I look up to this man for being the strong person he was. Being a retired Navy Seal, hearing all his interesting stories. I loved thanking Ron for his service on the military holidays. Im going to miss him daily. I pray that his family will find peace. Ron you will never be forgotten.

Ronald was a great guy with a very beautiful smile.
When my sister and I went to see him at Allen hospital, his face lit up with a very happy smile in see us.
Our prayers goes out to the family, and we pray for you all strength, may GOD bless you family.
