Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Ron lit up the room with his quite presence. He was a Packer fan we could like!

Please let us take this opportunity to share with all those who visit your guestbook what a pleasure it has been to have had you and Ron as our neighbors, friends and surrogate parents throughout our years at Maple Leaf. We will truely miss Ron for his good humor, helpful nature, and positive attitude, not to mention the many jobs he and his friends in the neighborhood took on to make Maple leaf a nicer place to live. He was a rare man who could take joy in small things and took on tough challenges with grace.
We will especially miss Ron at our summer get togethers soaking up rays on the patio, but we hope to continue our tradition with Jan Margaritas, anyone?

To Ron’s family: Ron was a member of the “Fort Sill, Oklahoma Mob” along with about seven other deadbeat doughboys. Our goal was to “duck” doing gaurd duty, KP and goof off. Ron was our Major Goofer and Mascot, and oh yes, loved by us all. We’ve all heard “taps” for you, Ron, and by now you’ve heard “reveille” in a better place.
