Ron was a talented carpenter who created many custom projects, from furniture to ice cream wagons for family, business, and church.

After retirement, Ron continued to us his skills at Careerline Tech as a para pro in the machine shop.

Ron will be deeply missed and always remembered as a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, mentor, friend, teacher and man of God.
