I met Ron through my wife’s high school friend, Cathy Tornwall. He became a friend in 2000 when they help plan our wedding in Marco Island, Florida. Through the following years, our friendship grew. He became a very close and faithful friend. Ron was one of a kind. I am grateful, I shared part of my life with him. I only wish it could have been a little longer. Ron, you are missed and will continue to be so. When it’s my time, I will be looking for you and Tuffy dog at the bridge. Just don’t let him bite me.

I met Ron in 9th grade in 1957 when in every class Tornwall Truska were always seated next to each other. That was my good forturne - t helped me pass trig in 12th grade. North Arlington was a basketball town, so pretty much every day after school we'd meet at the playground and shoot hoops. And when it was sunny the day after a snow fall, we'd shovel the court off to play. Ron was at Emery when I was at Ft Jackson in SC. My wife and I spent a few fun weekends with Ron and Judy in Atlanta and they met us in Myrtle Beach. Good Times. When they moved to FL I would visit them after my classes in Atlanta were over. I was able to spend some time with Eric trying to catch some fish when I was there.. I'm so glad we got to speak at Christmas. Be at peace, my friend...

Ron was my Stepdad for 24 years, but he was so much more to me than that. Ron was my friend, someone I always looked up to, respected, always could make me laugh and was always there for me. Ron taught me how to check the oil in my car and how to make sure I have the best looking pair of pumps on my feet! Ron wasn’t just my Stepdad…he truly was my Dad for those 24 years and beyond. I will forever cherish the time I had with Ron and the bond that he and I shared. He will be sorely missed.
