    Some personal thoughts on my brother-in-Christ, Ron...

    Although Ron and I never met in the flesh, never looked at one another face-to-face, and never even shook hands he was my friend, my brother, a co-addict in the Green Iron addiction (and in that an occasional "dealer" in that "drug", sometime offering "free samples" to keep the addiction alive) and a good and trusted fellow SS Member. From our posts, PM's, and phone conversations, I KNOW that Ron knows Jesus as his Savior and that he is now right where God wanted him to arrive from the day he was conceived in his mother's womb.

    On more than one occasion, I would mention a worn, defective, or missing part from one of our MV's and the next thing I knew a box would arrive from Ron free gratis. He never asked nor wanted payment. I think it was his way of supporting the SS Chaplain's Corner. He would probably not like that I shared that, but it IS the very least I can do to edify his example.

    In my own selfish desire to meet him, I am saddened to know we will never have that opportunity to meet at a rally or otherwise. In that my only comfort comes from my faith that we WILL meet in the glory of heaven.

    Ron left an indelible mark on these SS Forums. That is but one legacy he leaves for us to enjoy and benefit from. He also leave a family who will carry his love, his genes, and a worthy heritage into the future. Yes, Ron "marked his territory" well. And, Ron is remembered with his very own SteelSoldiers emoji "". So with it, I post this emoji farewell.......

    Default Ron Memories

    Ron and Deb.jpgRon and Jr.jpgRon and Kyle.jpgRon and Trucks.jpgSafety Check.jpgThe Herd.jpg

    Here are some pictures of Ron doing what he loved best, talking about Military Trucks and visiting with friends.

    Left to Right
    Picture 1 is with Deb a the Rally
    Picture 2 is with my father in law who he taught to drive a truck for the memorial day parade
    Picture 3 is with Kyle a good friend's son when we went to Pappa Bear's for the labor day parade
    Picture 4 is staging the trucks for one of the many parades we did in Gainesville
    Picture 5 is Ron checking my tow bar rigging he was a fanatic about safety
    Picture 6 is "The herd" as Ron used to like to call it. At one time he had 8 trucks in the front yard till the neighbors raised such a ruckus we had to move them all out.

    This is such a shock, I have no words.

    Prayers go out for loved ones and those involved; Ron will be greatly missed.
