  10. Bryan Brothers says:

    I can’t begin to speak of the memories and impact Uncle Ron left on my life. He grew up in the home I now own — and was the best Uncle one could ask for. He routinely beat me in a game of 21 basketball and was always up for a game of any kind and typically would beat me and let me know about it. I fondly remember sleeping at his house in Wilmington with Auntie Terri and going to golf the next day. We shared a love of sports and would often talk about our local sports teams. Most importantly, he was a loving brother to my Mom. RIP Uncle Ron– you were one of a kind.

  13. The Dranes says:

    We have had the honor and pleasure of knowing Ron for the last 10 years. He was probably the sweetest most genuine person we have ever met! Truly one of a kind! He treated our children as if they were his own family and was loved by many. Noah will never forget who taught him how to ride a bike and Logan will always remember Ron telling him to keep his elbow up when at the plate! Lexington street will never be the same without him. In Feb we had the pleasure of sitting on the beach with Ron and Terry just watching pelicans nosedive into the ocean for hours as we just shot the sh-t, was always easy to do that with him. We will truly miss our dear friend!
