    Few, though all fond, memories of Ron and his easy going nature. I remember his smile, his distinctive laugh, his drawings – such talent, his gigantic catfish in an aquarium in Ely, his three-wheeler always begging him to ride. I keep with me the memories of an uncle, a great guy – always kind, who came to our rescue against a dog named “Bear”, who just seemed to want to enjoy life. Ron, may you be at peace.

    I met Ron in Calif. at the KOA we both lived at. He will be remembered by me as always wanting to have the most fun in life. I will also remember that Ronnie was the first one to jump in and help, no matter was it was! I will keep with me always the hatchet that he made for me and treasure it! My heart goes out to his wonderful brother Ken. I hope to see Ken again one of these days and we will raise our glasses in celebration of the life that Ron had! He is truly missed!! RIP
