I am deeply sorry to hear the horrible news about Uncle Ronnie. He will be deeply missed by many and I will miss seeing him. I told my Mom Dorothy that no matter how bad of a day or a mood you were in, Ronnie could always bring a smile to your face and brightin up your day. I will always remember when I was a little kid, and we came to visit. We were swimming in the pool and I threw Ronnies cowboy hat in the pool and he was so mad at me. I know that he was only teasing me. No matter how old I got, he always knew exactly who I was. Such a great, wonderful man. He will always be remembered and missed. Take care and my love is with you all.

Dear Aunt Dorothy,my loving cousins and all family and friends of Uncle Ronnie. Please accept my condolences. I am so sorry I cannot be with you all at this time. Tonight I went online and printed the lyrics to I’ve Got Sixpence. Tomorrow evening I will stand on the bridge wing and sing it to the east wind at the top of my lungs. Uncle Ronnie, I love you and I don’t want to let you go but I was blest to have you for the first 50 years of my life. I know we will meet again and on the day that I face my own mortality, I ask but one thing. PLEASE! don’t tell St. Peter that you think this Bohunk pushed the wrong button on the elevator!
Your Nephew, Charles.

Dear Aunt Dorothy and cousins,
I was so sorry to hear of Uncle Ronnie’s passing. He was a great man, everybody loved Uncle Ronnie. My boys just got back from boy scout camp and Uncle Ronnie’s favorite song was one they sang, “Sixpence”. I have great memories of camping at Lazy Days, Twin Bridges, Hoefts and many more places with the Schlaikowski’s. He will be sadly missed by us all, but our lives are much richer for having him in them. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, Love Kathy & kids

Dorothy and family:

We are saddened to hear of Uncle Ronnie’s death and extend our condolences. He was certainly one of the all time greats! I cannot remember an extended Schuh family gathering without him. Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this time.

Dear Aunt Dorothy and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Uncle Ronnie meant so much to all of us and was such an important part of our lives. He was a wonderful example to us all of dedication and commitment to God and family. His quick wit and great sense of humor brightened every event, and Ronnie always made us laugh and feel good! Our entire family has fond memories of time spent with Uncle Ronnie and his positive influence. We apologize for being far away in China and unable to be with you at this time. May the good Lord wrap His arms around you, hold you close, and keep you in His Care!
Our love and sympathy,
Dic and Ginny Vraney

To the Schlaikowski’s and their “extended” family members;

Our thoughts and prayers are with you through this time of sorrow, and most of all joy. Joy for there are so many memories of “Dad Schly” as growing up we got to calling him, let alone having all of you as part of our “in laws” for staying in the family through “friendship’s” and a “marriage”. We all have so many memories, the laughter that he instilled into so many others, it was addicting…..he always made everyone smile and laugh. He will never be forgotten.

To the “Schly” Family my deepest sympathy for all, your father I am sure is having a laugh with St. Pete, just as he would have been laughing with his family as he did on many occasions. Will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Love Always
Little Mike Koceja and family
