  1. William A. Snay says:

    He was my friend all my life since we were both spanked the first day of school in the first grade. ” A friend is not a fellow who is taken in by shame, A friend is one who knows our faults and doesn’t give a damn”

  2. Barry Maxwell says:

    I am so sorry for your loss Caryl. I am sure that after all of your years of marriage that it will take a long adjustment to being alone. But, you really will not be alone. Just think of all of the good times you had with Ron.

  3. Keith Sarbaugh says:

    Carol and Family,

    I am so sorry for your loss and am saddened by the news of Ron’s passing. I enjoyed being Ron’s neighbor for a number of years and will always remember him fondly. I imagine Ron is either organizing a table tennis match or taking over heaven’s Aviary.

  4. Karl U. Sutter says:

    Dear Caryl Jo, I remember Ron as a really nice guy. Before I bought a car, I rode with him to Mansfield Business College. You and your family as well as Ron are in my prayers.
