My journey has ended. In a way, I am relieved. I had a great run, to be honest. I was lucky to get added time thanks to the IHC Transplant Center. Thanks to my wonderful wife and best friend Becky, for all the great years we spent together. I will miss you, my love.
I was preceded in death by my father Ted and mother Ina. My dad was truly one of the great guys in life. I was fortunate to have two wonderful children; Ronnie and Amy and stepdaughter Carly. Becky and I were blessed with five delightful grandchildren; Jada (Grant), Addie, Dane, Julian, and Vivienne. I was also blessed with my daughter-in-law Nikki, sons-in-law Troy and Casey. All upstanding people and I enjoyed all of you. I have one brother Ted (Claudia) and sister Pam (Eric), as well as Becky’s brother Randy and partner Amy.
I want to thank all the people at the IHC Heart Transplant Center for allowing me 18 more years of life. I would like to thank Dr. Rami Alharethi for everything over and above that you did for me, plus being a good friend. I also want to thank Elder Dale Renlund (retired cardiologist), who was nothing but fantastic while treating me. I would like to thank Sally Brush, Kismet Rasmussen and Stacey Frampton for all your help with my journey. There will be a private graveside service.
Rest in Peace & God bless you Ron! You gave me my first job 37 years ago when I was a kid. I grew up & raised a family of my own in the same industry ever since. I appreciate you giving me these opportunities! My sincere Condolences to Ronny, Amy & Family.
Ron, we affectionately called "Bulldog", because of his prowess on the gridiron, was a friend and teammate from age fifteen.
He was a wonderful friend, with a great sense of humor, very loyal to his friends & very smart. I have so many memories of our high school and college years both on the gridiron and off. He was to me, as they say, "one of kind", I shall let him live on with all the memories I carry in my heart and mind.
God Bless you my friend, forever RIP, God Bless Becky & the family!
So sorry for your loss. Ron was a big presence and he will be greatly missed. I feel very fortunate to have spent the last 19 years working for him. He was a great boss and though he was not great at showing his feelings, I always knew he cared and worked hard to take care of all of his employees.
So sorry to hear about the passing of Ron, truly a man of passion for his family, his business, and his customers.
My condolences to Becky and Ronnie and the rest of the family
God’s Blessings and Prayers
Rest In Peace Uncle Ron. You will be truly missed.
