The Town of Chelmsford Scholarship Fund has lost a tireless board member and the whole town has lost a good and decent man. Ron always put the needs of scholarship kids first whether he was interviewing them or writing the checks to send to their colleges. He now joins his loving wife Elaine in a place of perpetual bliss. Condolences to his wonderful family on their loss.
