Ron was a HUGE part of my life at Union Special. I LOVED each day working with him in the training center. He was such a GREAT man. His love for family was obvious. I seriously had SO MUCH respect for the person he was, and I am thankful to have known him and worked side by side with him. I will miss him greatly!
