Sadden to hear about Ron. We will always remember our family get togethers and the way he always made us laugh. My mom's memory is how he use to love to talk to Fannie on the phone when you were dating. Love to Ann Marie and the family. We are with you in spirit from Canada. Ronnie I got you last!

Ann and family we are so sorry to hear about Ron´s passing. To say we had a lot of good times together would be an understatement. So happy we got to see Ann and Ron last fall and catch up. Blessings to you and your family at this difficult time.

So very sorry to hear of the passing of Ron - hard to lose someone you have grown up with. He was a great guy (even tho he used to call me Bony Joanie at age 12-13). Don has fond memories of Annie from St. Anthony's and selling newspapers at age 15 at her dad's magazine stand at Pearl and Chippewa. What a wonderful family Ron and Annie have - Ron will be sorely missed. Love, Joan and Don
