Barb, I am so sorry for your loss. Ron worked for our farm. He was always willing to put in the work. He always showed up with a smile. He was my personal favorite trucker but it was never about favorites. I remember farm suppers, and days of harvest with him. But mostly I remember the pain and the tears that streamed down my face when I heard the horrible news. I know that he wants to be with us all. We will see him again Barb. He is smiling looking down on us and probably cracking a joke or two. It will never got better. It will never get easier. But we can get through it. Best wishes to you and the kids.

We are so heartbroken for my sister Barb, nephew Clay, niece Meg and the dogs Dexter and Milo. Ron sooo enjoyed his family. He was full of life and adventure. He was full of smiles and laughter and was known to crack some corny jokes once and awhile. He had great hair ... I think he had more hairstyles than any other guy I know. :) He would talk to anyone and always making friends. He is going to be deeply missed! Watch over your family Ron ... they will need it! RIP

I worked with Ron back in 95 and have been friends ever since. Even if it was a couple years in between chats. The world is a better place for having Ron be here.

Barb, I am so very sorry to hear of Ron's passing. I believe I met Ron through sister Lisa 30 some years ago. He was going to college and working as a bartender at Foxfire or what ever it was called way back when. So many good times through the years. My thoughts are with you and your children. A great guy that left us to soon
