So sorry for your loss, our thoughts and prayers for the family.

I have good memories of Ron as a classmate all through grade and high school, and enjoyed seeing him again at our 50th Class Anniversary Reunion. I was hoping there would be more reunions. Wishing you all the best.

Annie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. My sympathies to you all.

Russ and I are very sorry for your loss. Cherish your memories and hold them close.

I first met Ron while at The Midas Muffler & Brake Shop in mid 1986. Really a great individual to have as a customer. My sincerest condolences to the Dilyard Family!
