So sorry to hear about Ron’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family now and in the future. I was a classmate of Ron’s at HHS, class of 1966. Really enjoyed having him as a classmate during our high school years.
Sorry for your loss, did he teach music in Thornton IL at Wolcott School in the mid 1970’s ??
Ron, I was just thinking about some of the things we used to get into together the other day. Especially how we had a shooting range for our BB guns in my basement until one of us hit one of my mothers canning jars. The years at Waterman, HHS and in the scouts. I know you guys are probably setting there waiting on me. Someday soon we will all be togherer again soon. Everyone tells me I am not done here yet. Your old buddy Ron the other Ron
