I am so sorry. I had a chance to chat with Ron at the Mini reunion last year. He had such admiration for his family. He also had a terrific sense of humor. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Arlene and myself send our sympathy to Ronny's family. Growing up in the same neighborhood with he and Pat was special. Seeing him in Oakland in 1982 was surprising. My infrequent conversations in the past few years were very special. You were a great guy and always a good friend. We will miss you!

I will miss Ron very much. I enjoyed our coffee breaks and our chats over current events and political issues.

I got to know Ron about 30 years ago in San Francisco when we worked for Pac. Bell when he came to my rescue. I had a major problem in San Jose involving personnel and data transfer that needed to be straightened out. I asked to Ron take over the problem. He did, and with his suburb management and technical skills saved the day.

Peace be with you buddy.

We were so shocked and sad to hear about Ronnie's passing. Our hearts go out to all of you. We have only known him a short time, but we loved his passion for life and for soccer. We loved talking with him on the soccer fields whenever we ran into him. He got such joy from watching his beloved Holly play. May your memories with him bring you peace during this difficult time.

Ben, Mina, Sasha, and Jadey Sadoff xoxo
