Condolences

Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. Ron was like family to us--we all called him Uncle Ron. We went camping with him, and our kids just absolutely loved him. He taught us all how to chop wood, make chicken on a spit over the fire, play holey boards, etc. He made the best banana bread, soups, as well as homemade Bailey's Irish Cream! We always had so much fun when he was with us. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed! God bless you and your families!

Donnie, We are so sorry for the loss of your uncle - we know you two were very close. You and he were such great neighbors to us and our son Matt at Spruce Tree Village in the mid to late '80s. The fun times we had together are some of the best memories we have, especially the time we went to your pot luck dinner, and Scurvy made chicken over the fire pit in your back yard. He was such a cut-up - he always made sure everybody had a good time. He will be missed by many for a long, long time. We know we will.

Thank you for your service. Condolences to the family. Wooster-Wayne Chapter DAR
