    Ron was a fellow classmate at Cathedral Latin High School. I didn’t know him. I wish I had. I read his above life-story regarding his family, his military service, his entrepreneurship, his wonderful family and his joyful spirit. It suggested to me a life filled with impressive authenticity, quiet faithfulness and unadorned delight. He obviously lived a very blessed life. May Ron, my fellow classmate, rest in peace. Ron

    Condolences from the George & Joni Brownfield Family.


  4. To Ron’s family,

    My brother and he became table mates and buddies at Mapleview Country Villa. The two would go back and forth about the Browns and Steelers. I made Ron a Steelers clothing protector and he would proudly wear his and my brother would wear his Browns. Sadly my brother passed in early 2022 and I gave Ron several of my brothers clothing protectors and a picture of my brother which Ron put on his wall in his room. Ron was such a kind man to my brother always hollering to him on his way down the hall, “Fred, Fred, Fred, dinner time”, Ron often times would give his dessert to my brother. Ron would join my brother and I for a few hands of cards now and then, always eventful. I stopped in last December with my usual sugar free wafer cookies for Ron and had planned for a visit this holiday and never made it in. I just learned tonight Ron had passed. I am so sorry for the families loss, cherish the good memories.
