Ron was always a very kind, genuine, and generous , man. I enjoyed hearing from him as to what I could do to help he and Kathy in their condo and that he pay me handsomely for my work. He always seemed to have some wisdom to give me each time I made a service call. It was a pleasure to have him as my customer and friend.
Condolences, The Woodworkher.
