Dear Shirley and the whole Collura family, I am so sad to hear of Ron's passing! I still have fond memories of the brief time I spent with your family years ago. It was obvious that he was the man of the house! A very loving husband and father! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time. My love always, Paul Sirianni

To Ron"s Family,
I met Ron when I started at RG&E in 1965. He was my co-worker and friend for many years. He was one of the very nicest people I have known; kind, generous, thoughtful. He will be missed by many. Rest in piece, my friend.
