Our dear Ron was our next door neighbor but more than that he was part of our family. We had wonderful daily fence conversations over the years. He talked often about his love for Jo Ann, his grandchildren and the love of nature. He loved our children, grandchildren, and our dogs like his own. He had the skill to know what flower to plant to attract all kinds of beautiful wildlife. We know we will see him again whether it is as a Red bird, Hummingbird, or Butterfly. His smile and kindness will live on.
Our love goes out to you Jo Ann and your family.
In Ron's words, "I love you kiddo."
Molly and Danny O'Rourke

Ron was such a wonderful neighbor. He was always smiling. We first met when I walked my dog and he knew her name. Things progressed and my sons and I mowed his lawn. Ron was an incredible guy and we are so saddened by his passing.
