Smiling... Cheerful... Fun... Innocent... Care-free... I regret not getting to know Ron better than I did. Those are but a few of the sensations I immediately realized he brought to us, to me. I was extremely impressed by the turn-out for the service, too. It says much about Ron's character, and how much and how many he touched in his brief time here with us. I miss you, buddy, but I'll see you down the road. Corey Alexander, November 8, 2006 Sorry to hear of your loss, my thoughts and prayers be with you during this dificult time.

I knew him for over 6 years after moving to Dallas from Chicago. We would talk about sports or anything else and he was always in the fantasy sports leagues with the rest of the guys. I last spoke to him in person a few days before he passed away and I asked him "How come you didn't play fantasy football this year?" His reply was "I won it two years in a row so I've already climbed the top of the mountain" it was funny! Ron will be missed but lets all be thankful that we had time with him and that one day we will all see him again. Jim Churilla, November 8, 2006 Ron was a good friend and colleague. Both my wife and I had the opportunity to work with Ron, and more importantly to have him as a friend. Rest in peace; you will be remembered and missed!

Scott O'Brien, November 7, 2006 I count myself lucky to have known Ron as a friend, and his passing came as a tremendous shock. I lost my Father recently and now I lose a friend.

I'll miss hearing his cheerful voice on the other end when I call in. Sangeeta K. Daiya, November 6, 2006 Ron will missed by all of us from Sharkys.

He would come to a lot of our pool parties and play volleyball with all the guys...visit with us girls and play for hours with my 2 boys in the pool, letting them climb all over him and wanting him to throw them in the air to crash into the water. He always had a smile for me whenever I saw him. Laura Christine Martin, November 5, 2006
