    My condolences to the Ron LaChance family. I grew up with the LaChance family in Pawtucket. Rons brother Bob was one of my best friends.

    Sympathies to the Lachance family from an old friend that shared many happy memories over many years and job opportunities. A heavy gratitude to brother Ron and heartfelt thanks for the connections we made socially through the years. This is like losing a part of family. Anne we pray that you will be in good hands and process this with the many positive memories and laughter that history has provided for you. I finally arrived at my destination at a community college in New Jersey as the Vice President of Business and fell in love with the area and reside in a town called Toms River. My love to you all.

    Dear Anne,
    It has been a very long time. I just saw Ron's obituary posted on Facebook. I recognized his friendly smile as soon as I saw it. On behalf of the Ryan family (Tom & Jan), our deepest sympathy to you and your family. May your fond memories bring you peace at this difficult time.

    My name is Philip Barr…I went to URI and my older brother used to play guitar with a Ron LaChance ! I believe he may have lived in Bristol at some point ! I knew Ron only slightly but always remember him as treating my brother’s little brother-probably annoying little brother-very nicely and respectfully ! I’m not sure if I have the same Ronald LaChance but if I do, I wanted to pay my respects for his acceptance kind treatment of that annoying little kid ! I’m talking some 60 years ago so Ron obviously made a very positive impression on me ! I’d really like to know if I am writing to the right LaChance family ! Thank you…and again, my condolences ! Philip D Barr, dds
