  1. Had many racquetball games with Ronnie and then with Ron and his friends. All competitive, all fun. Great story telling after. Terrific brother in law. Always a positive guy. Always willing to help out no matter what job. Loved his vehicles. Will miss him. His burdens and toil’s are ended. He handled them with grace and dignity. We’ll enjoy court time reunion in the future.


  2. I am so very sorry for your loss. Ron was a amazing person. I always enjoyed seeing him when he came into the restaurant. He had the greatest smile, and was always so kind to everyone. He is now in the glory of God. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.


  3. So many great memories. From Monday night football to Ron making News Years Tacos, d
    Going to Dale Hollow Reservoir some day I will get these videos and send you both a copy.
    I know I speak for Ann and the kids in saying how we sad this good man is no longer with us.


  4. Ron, (or Ronnie as we called him growing up) was the best brother anyone could have. He put up with his 4 sisters bc he loved us. He would do anything for family. Shelley, and Teri know that he worked hard for his family, balancing spending his time with them and working. I’m sure the grandkids and great grandkids were able to experience his love and affection. We all will miss Ron so much and we have sadness today mixed with joy that Ron knew Jesus as his Saviour. There was rejoicing in Heaven when Ron met Jesus and our Mom and Dad and others that have gone before him. Praise the Lord!


  5. While growing up, Ron was known to our family as Ronnie. One day several years ago he made it known to us that we were now to refer to him as Ron. I remember when Ron began his first job at Krogers. All of us sister’s took a turn at ironing his white shirts that he was required to wear to work. At Christmas, my big brother enjoyed spending his hard earned money on specialChristmas gifts for his family. A transistor radio was

    God only gave us one brother, and I’m so thankful that brother was Ron. Ron was THE BEST BROTHER my three sisters and I could have had. When I needed a co-signer on a loan for my first new car, Ron gladly co-signed. When I asked Ron if he would walk me down the aisle at my wedding since our dad had passed away some years earlier, Ron gladly agreed. Ron had a kind and generous soul. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He could always make you laugh with his quick wit and great sense of humor. Even with all the burdens of the illness Ron had, I never heard him complain once. I will miss Ron terribly, but I know he is in Heaven with the loved ones that have passed on before him. Ron’s memory will remain in my thoughts and my heart forever.


  8. When i first began to look for comments about ron, the obituary showed up for don barnes. Ron and don attended riverside high school and were school chums. Don lived on the street across from where we lived. I was the oldest of five and next was ron. He was the kindest, most thoughtful brother and was a hugh support for me. I would have him over for dinner and serve some of the dishes that mom made during our growing up years. To me, he was bigger than life until this awful disease slowly drained him of life inch by inch. It is so hard to know that he is not with us. All through his suffering, and he did suffer, i never heard him complain once. I and my sisters visited him on a weekly basis barring inclement weather or our being ill during the years he was housed in a nursing home. A year or so ago, i became concerned about his eternity and felt God had put it upon my heart to talk to him. So hard as it was and done from pure love, i asked him if he believed Jesus was the son of God and was crucified and hung on a cross, died, was buried in a cave and rose on the third day. His response was yes. I asked if Jesus was his Saviour. His response was, “He’s always been my Saviour.” I was full of joy that he was saved and had secured his eternity. I will forever miss and love my dear sweet brother. He is home with Jesus, and he does not hurt.


  9. As we were growing up, I always loved when my cousins came down from “up north.” I always thought they were very special. Ronnie and my brother, Bobby, we’re only a few months apart in age, and they were always getting into some sort of boyhood mischief. As we watched the video last night, the pictures brought back some memories of our childhood and some tears of loss. Ron will always be remembered as having a kind and caring heart. I love you, Ron!
