I'm very sorry to hear of Ron's passing. I just found out, now 2021. Ron and I went to same school together, and his parents and my parents were best buddies...They bowled together....Ron and I got caught changing our bad grades on our report card...won't ever forget that time! We lived close by, he was always fun to be around and his parents were super people. I'm very sorry for the family's loss.

Ronnie & I went to Valley Forge High together and got into trouble together! His parents and my parents bowled and played cards together in Parma, Ohio. I just came across Ron's obituary and extending my deepest sympathy to Ron's family. I haven't seen Ron since school days 52 yrs. ago when they lived on Greeenleaf. His parents George and Amelia were very special people...I am very sorry for your loss. Respectfully, Barb (Fox) Smallwood (prev. lived on Maplewood Rd.).

Ron, You are missed by all of us who knew you and loved you. And I miss my little bother. I can't believe you're gone. Keep the beer cold, and save a few for Joe and me--we'll be seeing you later. Your bro forever, Jerry
William Spadaro, Chaplain, Chapter 1037, Vietnam Veterans of America left a message on December 31, 2015:
The members of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 1037 wish to convey our heart felt condolences to the family of Mr Matyk. Although not a member of our chapter, Mr Matyk was a veteran who served his country during the Vietnam war. Those who served in Vietnam share with all other war veterans an awful knowledge and understanding of the true cost of war. Mr Matyk was such a veteran who experienced this first hand. Veterans of Vietnam have borne an additional burden-- for the conflict was not neatly resolved and many questions remain unanswered. But, we know one thing... Mr Matyk has left us. He left once at the call of duty to serve his country and he has now left again to answer the summons, a roll call we must all face. May he rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

You will be missed Captain Ron
Cynthia Logan left a message on December 25, 2015:
I only met Mr. Matyk a couple of times so I know him best through some of his children and grandchildren. A man's legacy can be honored or otherwise through his children. Ronald Matyk was able to meet his Savior with the knowledge that his children honor who he was and what he instilled in them along with their mother. I know he will be missed beyond words. I know he will live on through his family.
