  1. Ron and I were always the first ones at work in Manchester and I could always count on him for smile and word of encourgagment. If I had a problem he was there to help however he could.
    I will always cherish the memories and the fun we had at work he was so special for so many.

    He Loved you all so very much and could not wait to hop a plane and get back to his roots.

    Rest in Peace my good friend you will never be forgotten. May God Bless your family and help them through this time of grief and sorrow. As for me I still look for you everyday and will, I am sure, for a very long time.

  2. Dear Michele, Damien, Becky, and families,
    My deepest sympathies at this heart breaking time. This news caught me off guard, as I told the other gents from the AIGDC days. Ron was a mentor and dear friend during my years there. His laughter and unique way of putting things into perspective for me was always greatly appreciated. Here’s hoping that he and George Davis have caught up with each other and are sharing a beer as we, some of the remaining members of AIGDC will soon do in Ron’s memory.

    Becky,
    Amy and Michele send their condolences as well.

  3. I wanted to second Damien’s thank you. I am ever so grateful to each of you for sharing your memories of Dad. I read this page repeatedly over the past few days, and very much appreciated seeing these recollections, and knowing that Dad was special to so many others. Thank you so very much.

  4. Ron and I have shared adjacent offices for the last few years. I always knew when it was Friday because that’s the day Ron would crank up the hard rock music on his radio. I often tried to talk him into some “easy listening” tunes but he would match my persistence with politeness and ultimately pass on the offer – and we would laugh. He was never shy about sharing a story or two about his family. I can still hear him saying “Yeaaaah, I love ‘em!” He was so very proud of all of you. During the past few months, I could see how each day was getting progressively harder for him but he never gave up. And he never stopped smiling. I miss him.
    Please accept my deepest sympathy.

  5. My wife Shirley and I had the great experience of working and partying with Ron during the 70’s and 80’s. We have many great memories of Ron and we are very sorry for your loss.

  6. Reading the memorial page, people described the same great guy I knew at Pueblo Catholic High. May the family be comforted by all of the good thoughts that remain for “Ronnie”. Bless you all in your saddness.

  7. Dear Michele,
    I’m so very sorry to hear about your loss; just know my heart and prayers are with you during this time of such deep sorrow.

  8. Working with Ron always made the day brighter. His smile and good nature was always predictable. I’ll forever remember Ron as someone I was very lucky to have known. I will miss him very much. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. May God bless you all.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of grief and always. I truly regret that I will not be able to attend the funeral services for Ron, but please know that you will be in my thoughts.

    Sincerely,

  10. My deepest condolences to your family during this difficult time. Ron was a highly regarded and truly valued colleague who will be greatly missed.

    May the lord God bless you and keep you for eternity.

  11. To the Family of Ron,

  12. I never knew that Ron served with the 101…very prestigous outfit… But that’s just the kind of guy Ron was.. I worked with Ron for 12 years. I will miss his ‘dry’ sense of humor his straight shooting and always willing to help attitude. Rest in peace my friend…

  13. I have never been good with words for this type of occasion, so let me offer the following paraphrased of a quote from Abraham Lincoln which sums up what I would like to say.

    “…I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the legacy Ron left behind in you and your family. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost…”

  14. Shayna and I were very sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. I always enjoyed our conversations. Our best to Michele and the rest of the family.

  15. I was shocked and saddened to learn of Ron’s passing last week. Ron and I worked together for many years, and I have never seen him fail to have a smile on his face. His infectious good humor and positive outlook left all who he touched feeling better. I can’t tell you how many people at Sylvania have written me to praise Ron for going the extra yard when helping someone out.

    I will miss him terribly, as will all of his coworkers.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, Michele, as well as Rebekah and Damien and thier families. May God bless you all, and keep you in the palm of HIs hand in this time of grief and loss.

  16. I was very saddened to learn of Ron’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    I feel truly blessed to have known Ron. He was a wonderful Son, Husband, Father, Uncle, Grandfather and friend. The house would be filled with laughter and excitement anytime Ron & Michele would visit from back East. One of my fondest memories would be the family gatherings for a game of cards during his visits.

    Sending you my love and prayers during this very difficult time.

    God Bless,

    Shelli Harding
