We were fortunate enough to have known Ron for a number of years. Tom and Ron shot at the Newton Gun Club, and then later did sporting clays together. They were able to go on fishing trips to Lake Texoma a few times. I was a County Commissioner with Ron for 8 years always admired how well Ron represented his area. Tom and I and Ron and Nancy shared many like interests and will miss our friendship greatly.
