    A good man. I was blessed to know Ron and his late wife. Now he has joined the Lord. Free of all pain and suffering. May all the wonderful times shared, give comfort to those that must say good-bye. In the end, we shall see each again. Rest in peace my friend.

    Ron has gone to rejoin his beloved, Jan. His heart has been broken since she left. May he now be at peace in the embrace of God. While his family and friends will miss him there should be comfort in knowing he has gone home. With love, Janet Proscia

    I was lucky enough to know Ron for 48 years. He was a kind and loving man! Growing up Kevin’s friends were always welcomed in his home. I will miss his big bear hugs!! He is now out of pain and reunited with his true love!
