“Ron was my older “brother” through all the years in Mecosta, Kalkaska, Marion, and the summer he lived with my family at St. Mary’s lake. He was a brother in arms from our military days, solid advisor through difficult times, and the man who steered me to help when I so desperately needed it. RIP my friend and brother.”
