    Although we only new Ron for a little over 13 years it was some of the best years traveling in our RV's. We met him and Robin in an RV park and traveled every year to wherever we wanted to go. From Hershey Park and Gettysburg PA. to Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky to the Florida Keys and a favorite Gamble Roger's State Park in Florida. We will always have those memories to look back on and to know he has blazed us another trail to follow until we meet again.
    We love you Ron,
    Bob & Vicki DeBree

    Ron and I were BEST friends for 63 years. As far as I can remember, we never had a disagreeable conversation on any subject. Friends like Ron are very hard to find. The best things about our friendship now are the memories. We will keep Ron, Robin, his family, and "Tink" in our prayers every day.

    Ron played left center field I played next to him in left field. I truly enjoyed every moment. Ron was the best and I knew he was a Christian by his actions. That is the highest compliment you can pay a Christian. To walk like Christ. I will miss him as well as my wife Pat she kept the scorebook.

    Only knew Ron a short time here in SummerGlen. He was in my graduation class at Penn State, though we never met till living here in Ocala. I enjoyed playing pickleball with him & conversing with him. He was a gentleman. I am so sorry for your loss. He will be missed.
