    Ed and I have known Ron for over ten years. He became our friend when we joined the Shenango Valley Boat Club, and we loved him dearly. We used to call him Uncle Ron! He always had a smile on his face and a cigar in his hand! He would help anyone with anything – so kind and generous. He had many personal losses over the past few years including a wife he adored, and his faithful dogs Butchie and Buddy – yet Ron kept pushing through despite his pain. I’d like to think that now he has been reunited with the love of his life, and the dogs he adored so much. We are going to miss Ron very much – till we meet again one day. Godspeed Ron – and keep an eye on us all.

    Love, Sandy and Ed Warner
