    I recall meeting Ron many years ago. I attended high school with Randy at Martin Luther. Randy would frequently speak fondly of his Uncle Ron; sharing anecdotal stories from his career with the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office. .

    I personally appreciate Ron’s many years of service to our county. May his memory be a blessing and may he rest in peace.
