  • Linda Swanson

    I am so sorry for your loss. Ron was a character and I was never sure if he was pulling my leg or serious. One of the things I loved about him. The one thing I never questioned was his love for his family, especially his wife Linda and their fur babies. He is at peace now.

  • John Lee

    Ron was a delightful man. I always enjoyed visiting with him. He chose well in marrying Linda. I knew him when he had health difficulties and he was always cheerful and upbeat. He will be missed.

    Dearest Linda,
    Thank you so much for messaging me yesterday, I have worked all weekend and had not had the chance to see the newspaper. I’m so sorry for your loss, may you rest easy knowing that Ron’s taking charge in Heaven now. Sure going to miss him. Oh the topics we have covered over the years in idle conversation. Sometimes I wasn’t sure if he was just pulling my leg. Ron was a wealth of knowledge and loved to share it. I feel blessed that Ron joined the Wine Club at Eagle Haven Winery and visited often as possible. Grateful to have met you both, enjoyed your company and friendship. If there is anything I can do to help you please message me. Your home will be overly quiet now without Ron’s chatter. I’m sure his furry friends are feeling the loss. I lift you up in prayer, to find peace and comfort in the days to come.
    you shed your light on silence, your joking personality kept us guessing, you lived life real, your wisdom/ encouraging words were heard, thank you for blessing my life with friendship. Rest peaceful my friend, high on that mountain. Always and forever your friend, Tina Rexroth
