I would like to say that I was really surprised and sad to hear of Ron's passing. Ron, my wife Karen, and I go back many many years. My wife and I live in Newark and we both started working at AMSAA in Aberdeen Proving Ground in 1975. We worked with Ron at AMSAA and carpooled with Ron starting in 1975. In fact, Ron and I worked in the same office for much of our career in the government. Needless to say Ron was a great friend who would do anything at all to help someone if he could. Ron sort of became a defacto uncle to our 3 girls as they grew up. They too really liked Ron and went out of their way to talk with him whenever they would she Ron at church. Karen and I will really miss Ron and we hope he is heaven enjoying his new time with his Mom and Dad.

I was fortunate to work with Ron early in my career; he always looked out for me. He was kind-hearted and had a great sense of humor. RIP Ron; prayers for his family and friends.

God Bless
