Never met him but still hate to lose members of the community.  May he rest in peace.
If it were not for girls in bikini's and gardening there would be no need for summer!

Ron lived just a couple miles from me.... good guy and vintage sledder, he’ll be missed.

Ron was a very good guy. He helped me out of a jamb one time and I won't forget what he did for me.

Some here might remember one year at the A-1 swap, I was cruising around on a borrowed Yam golf cart that was smoking like a bitch. It quit on me and because I had just got out of the hospital in MN, I was far from prepared for anything other than setting in a chair watching tv. The cart was a 2-stroke and all of the stop go cruising was more than it could take. Ron came upon me and asked if I needed a hand, then towed me back to my trailer and helped me get the cart loaded. This was the same year that CP and his crew came to MI and I was able to meet some of the group that were regular posters here at that time.

I don't know how, but it will.
