Ron was my mentor, my friend, my brother. I loved him dearly and will miss him for the rest of my days. He truly was one of a kind.

From carrying a rifle to carrying the mail, you were a true hero and you will be missed.

We're so sorry for your loss. Ron played at my tennis court many times. He was a very good player and a great guy. He will be missed especially in the tennis community.
