    Ron was a classmate of mine (BHS 1973). I was just going to contact him regarding a possible 40th Class Reunion. :( He was always so quiet, but when he spoke, sooooooo smart and wise and witty. I was really looking forward to reconnecting with him. Know that he will be greatly missed, remembered and honored whenever our classmates gather. So very sorry for your loss – he was much too young.

    Thinking of you,
    Debbie (Paulson) Singh
    Class of ’73

    My condolences go out to the entire Engel family.
    I met Ron in 1972 through mutual friends, when I lived in Blaine Minnesota.
    I always admired his knowledge, his wisdom, and his sense-of-humor. He was always fun-to-be-around, and to listen to his stories.
    Ron will be greatly missed, and he will never be forgotten.

    Thinking about the Engels. Just ran into Ron @ NAPA last month, I’m shocked. Ron was a great American, and will be missed.
