I had the pleasure of knowing Dianne and Ron through our work with York College. I also had the great pleasure of meeting him in the parking lot regularly as my work was ending and his shift was beginning. That better way to start my drive home. I will miss that smile, but I know it'll be shining from above. Wishing the family comfort, strength and great memories.

We were new neighbors to Ron at Wethersfield Drive! We only knew him for a short time but John & I became fast friends with Ron! He was a great neighbor. He was welcoming to us and always had a quick laugh and a story to tell! We will truly miss him! May warm memories of Ron comfort his family and friends!
