My deepest sympathy. I knew Ron from the fire department since 1982. He was a good fireman and also a good friend. He always treated me with respect and will be missed greatly. It's a shame he had to go so young in life. I know he's serving a better purpose in Heaven now. I graduated high school with his daughter-in-law. Can't remember right now. Think her name was Donna. I knew his son. He was two years ahead of me in high school also. Met him when I was in 10th grade. I knew him vaguely. But Ron was alright in my book. I wish the family strength throughout this whole ordeal. Peace to all!

Linda, Donna and Ronny, I have great memories of both your mom and dad. They were such a big part of my life growing up. All of the family picnics at their house and the holiday parties. The best part of summer was knowing we would be getting together with all of our family for 4th of July at their house! Then, as we got older, they were a big part of our adult lives. Your mom made all of the flowers for Kristie's wedding and gave me advice about mine. Your dad made sure he was at all our weddings. Those memories will be with me forever. Uncle Ron was so wonderful even when Bob was sick. He was fighting his own battle, but was still worried about Bob. Bob was just as concerned about him. I will remember the last words your dad said to me was take care of Bob, he's a good boy. He was such a special person and he will be in my heart always. We love you very much.

Ron was a a co-worker of mine but, more importantly a great person and friend. Many times when I needed someone to talk to Ron was there with an open mind and heart. He loved his Family and would often talk about you all. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was told to get off my feet several times a day at work. Well, there was three of us working all pregnant. Ron would everyday find little things that he could have me do that involved sitting. He was always generous with his smile that will be what I remember most about Ron. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Ron and I graduated high school together. However, our past connections go back much further. His parents were customers of my parents/grandparents grocery store-Eisner's in Colonna. My first memory of Ron was going with the driver to deliver grocery orders. Ron and I must have been 5 or 6 at the time. I remember him being labeled a holy terror as a kid. I last saw Ron at out 45th and 50th high school reunions. It was wonderful to re-unite with him again. I live in southern California, so I was unable to attend the funeral. I know this message is a poor substitute, but family and friends have my deepest sympathies. Ron was a great guy. I will miss him. Hershel Sakulsky

Dear Ann and family, I was truly shocked and saddened to hear of Ronald's death. Ann, at our last visit together, we were so happy to talk about your new home and new life with Ron. However, I know how strong your faith is and how well you will deal with this loss. Know that I am here for you and hope you will stay in touch. Love from me and my family here in Houston.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

It took me a while to figure out that this seemingly gruff old man had a heart of gold. One minute we could be in a heated discussion about how to properly set up a department and the next he would be offering me a piece of his famous fudge. No one taught me more about the hardware business than Ron, and there was no one that I would rather have working on a store "set up" with me than Ron. I know that he will be sadly missed by all but especially the people that he bragged about constantly, his family. Boy was Ronnie proud of his family, and ol yea "his" fire station! God bless all who now celebrate his life. Paul Strano

Linda, Donna and Ronnie - we loved your Dad. Uncle Ron was such a happy person, always laughing, smiling and seeing the positive in every situation. So many memories... from childhood gatherings of the extended family to recent family celebrations. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Ann, we extend our heart felt sympathy to you. May God bless and comfort you.
