I just heard that Ron had passed. I am sad I missed his Celebration of Life. I had not seen him since we moved out of the area. He once arranged a blind date for me with a young lady, Chelle, now my wife of 42 years. He was the godfather to our youngest son Roger. We worked together at BPA for decades. I remember great times going to airshows and at work. My condolences to Stephanie and his children and grandchildren. Ron was one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to know.
