  1. Uncle Ron was truly one of my very best friends in the world. I looked up to this man my whole life and to put it simply; I adored and loved him so much. His death breaks my heart, however, I realize he is in a good place right now. Ron will truly be missed in my life.

  2. Barbie, we are so very sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. I had some of my most wonderful memories working with Ron at Grubb & Ellis in Phoenix. He was an exceptional
    Leader and one of my closest friends. I called him “Papa” and he called me “kid”….Thank you Barbie for taking care of one tough Marine!

  4. A great boss, manager/friend always helped us keep our spirits up when we were down -emotionally-THE # 1 reason, that our office became the top office in Tucson was Ron a man I knew that if I had a problem-I could talk with him-solve – walk out his office and the problem was solved-ALWAYS——Chris Kwasny he actually served us coffee followed by a slap on the back and a “go get um” you can do it”
