    Uncle Ron was my favorite uncle. I remember once when he came to visit us when I was younger & he had a motorcycle & he took me for a ride on it. I thought it was the coolest thing! Have lots of good memories of him & always will ❤️

    Ron and I were best buddies at Tunstall High School. We were always hangin out together. People who didn't know us thought we were brothers. He went with my mom, dad, and me to the beach a couple of times. We played in a British invasion style band in the late sixties. Ron played bass. After graduation Ron left town and I didn't see him again until 2005. I always wondered where he was and how he was doing. He was a great guy. My condolences to his family.
