    Wanece and family,

    We have so many fond memories of Ron. He was fun! He had a great booming laugh. I remember when he was served a charcoal briquette at Brown’s Bay – He loved WELL DONE hamburgers! Thankfully he didn’t break a tooth that day He had a great booming laugh. Whenever the staff did dish crew after a banquet, Ron always headed for the “pot sink”. No pan was too blackened, no pot too greasy for Ron!!!

    We pray for your comfort as you all.
