Ron was an Aggregate Salesman for several years but was a welder by trade and soon became interested in metal sculpting. He later took up woodworking as well. Ron was passionate about his Harley and at one time took several trips to Laughlin, NV.
Ron was a gentle soul, who had a big heart, never met a stranger and always remembered those less fortunate.
In all Ron's years his only regrets were not mastering the Accordion and never having enough Polish jokes.
