Ron was known to many as a very patient and welcoming man with a calming presence. He was a loving and supportive husband, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, friend, veteran, leader, volunteer, faithful servant of God and prayer warrior. Among his many talents and passions, including his family, Auburn football, hiking with his sons and golf, his dedication to his faith remained at the forefront of every aspect of his daily life. During his last 2 years, he fought valiantly to overcome brain cancer, never faltering in his faith.
