I have three pictures of Ron. We actually go back to Mt. Vernon  elementary and two pictures of him standing on the old shell playground flirting with either Cheryl Gorsuch or Betty Woods. Then there is a pic of him waving from a car window before a trip to hike the Appalachian trail in the late 50's with Gary King, Tom Wallace, Andy seawright, and others. He carried a broad smile and great dimples. He had joined the navy out of high school but I saw him again in the late 80's.  He worked for Florida power many years and last heard that he lived around crysta river. He was a great outdoors man who camped and hikes but his true love was " bones." Ron was an amateur archeologist who once searched out Indian mounds and old civil war battle sights and so knowledgeable. My heart goes out to all his friends. I found him very loyal.

In reading those who have posted a comment it is amazing that how many of us go back to our elementary days of school together,  Kenny you posted a great piece which brought back memories of not just of Bogie but of Mt. Vernon and all those that went on to Disston Junior High and then up 11th Aveue South to the completion of our public school years.  And then Betty you chimmed in with your memories of Mt. Vernon and how it it made me start naming in my mind all of the guys and dolls who started out together about 65 years ago.  The play ground had trees and we boys would go out at recess and play softball and if you were strong enough would lauch a ball into those tress.  Ron was one of the boys on that playground in my life from the beginning.  My memory says he nicknamed me "Lemon" and even signed my graduating year book with such address.  Let's hope we will all see each other on the other side when our day is called.  See you again Ron!

It is a shame that we ever have to go, we all know that we will, but we hope that it will take so much time that maybe by then we will be ready for it to happen. Ron's passing was way too soon but his mark will be the memories left behind for those close to remenber and reflect upon.

Ron and I were best friends starting at Mt Vernon. I was at his house a lot, His Father had the biggest indoor model train setup I have ever seen. We were in Boy Scout together and broke lots of rules along our path, I have not seen Ron in years, the last time I saw him he had a giant fossil collection, I was beyond impressed.

We all have our journey's, some short, some long, I think the path is designed before we arrive here. I had a near death experience in the 80s, SO, I'm sure Ron is doing just fine on the other side hanging out with all of our friends who have graduated this lifetime with Honors.  Blessings to him and his family.

Well, I too am a Mt Vernon classmate and childhood friend and neighbor of Ron since we were 7 years old.  Remembering very fondly of football games in the sand on the playground.  Mrs Shad 3rd grade picture of us all is still one of my favorites.  I will keep his memory in my heart and hope we really have the chance to visit once again.  

To everyone who reads well, and enjoy each day....laugh out loud often..........
