    This is so sad . Ron you were a one of a kind . We will hold onto every memory we have . The many times you had Kyle with you at the tracks. The time he pulled your jeans down around your knees . Told the red head joke to everyone . As a little kid he hung with you . Thanks Ron . Rest In Peace 😥

    We have been so saddened to hear of the passing of Ron. I met Ron on the race track, through my husband over 20 years ago! The nicest and most caring man anyone would love to know. He was always with his brother Don & Dons wife Lucy. We had some really good times together, lots of fun eating out & visiting for hours! He will be greatly missed by so many!
