Ron became our son-in-law in the summer of 2019, at that time we learned of our daughter, Kathy, through "23 and me." We communicated with Kathy and Ron by telephone for several months and eventually met them both in person for the first time on Thanksgiving, at their home in Spring Hill, Tennessee. We shared a lot of conversations, feelings. laughter, and tears at that Thanksgiving. The rest of the story and details should be provided by Kathy and /or her children, Shana, Sean, and Kevin. Both Kathy and Ron invited us into their home with hospitality and love, and it was probably the Greatest Thanksgiving ever. Ron displayed immediate friendship, caring, and his obvious love and devotion to Kathy and their children. Patsy and I shared with Ron our shared interest in football, baseball, boating, project cars, and fishing. Ron and I even experienced together a Charter Fishing Trip in Mexico and had the best time catching lots of fish! We will miss Ron forever -his good nature, his humor, and caring ways. Patsy and I both, our hearts ache over the untimely passing of Ron. Kathy and Ron, you gave us our first Great Grandchildren and will love these babies forever! Additionally, and foremost our hearts ache for Kathy, Shana, Sean and Kevin and all family members. We will never forget you, Ron! God gained a very fun and loving Angel that day!
I’m very sorry, Ron was a very kind man . We will miss him. Our prayers are with you.
A flood of great memories from Jersey came over me when I heard about Ron. Football game parties, BBQs, bowling league. and having children. Who can forget Friday nights out at Hanover. Kathy, while many years have passed I often think about you guys, the kids and your family. I am so sorry for your loss.

Oh uncle Ron, I just found out. My heart is absolutely broken right now, the tears just won’t stop. You were always more like a brother to me, than an uncle. I will forever cherish our closeness when we were younger. You always made me laugh. The pranks we pulled on Paulette, and the trips to Katz to get Starburst for you. You turned me on to all the cool bands, and taught me what music really was. The hours I spent reading the lyrics insert that came with your albums..The bus rides to Two Guys in Middletown so you could get the first Kiss album. I know so many family members welcomed you to heaven. I love you Uncle Ron. Please watch over your family, and please tell Ron I love him xo
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
I remember Uncle Ron always making me feel like I was a part of his family. I remember his card collection,seasame place, and bonding over our love of baseball (he was quite the ball player)
My sincerest condolences to my aunts and cousins. Heaven gained another “big head” angel❤️🌹
So sorry to hear about your dad Shana. Our prayers are with you and your family.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
