Born December 13, 1961 in Philadelphia, PA. Ron, a self-proclaimed Kenzo, was larger than life in size and personality.
He was a natural athlete and loved football, having played semi-pro and making lifelong friends aka “brothers” in the process. When he could no longer play he kept his love of the sport alive by coaching; he taught children the game he loved at Poquessing Middle School, and while he was unaware of it, he was a mentor to them.
Ron worked hard to earn what he had and without complaints. He was a problem solver, and a tenacious and dedicated worker who won three innovation awards from Boeing for his inventions. He also served in the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard).
He loved his family and he did what he could to encourage us to succeed. He supported us and would do whatever it took to protect us. There was never a doubt if he'd be there. He taught us hard truths, how to respect and how to command respect, to not be naïve, to not care what other people think, and always do what we thought was the right thing.
Ron wasn’t afraid to make waves yet people were still naturally drawn to him. He was a natural leader and a fighter. We’ll miss your loud laugh, your “YO!!!” hellos, your massive presence and your unwavering love and support.
Survived and missed by his wife Kimberly, daughters Kristen and Erika, son Connor, and granddaughter Agnes.
We love you. See you on the other side #45.
