Condolence & Memory Journal

I just heard of Ron's passing. I didn't know. He has been a friend that went all the way back to when I was a simple boy...and, I would say he was a rather top dollar sort of fellow, a good filled with fun and laughter. He is a man I will remember always, a guy that etched for himself a place in Pendleton lore; a former Marine I've always been proud to call a friend; may the Lord bless him and his family. Wow...disappointing news...

I just found out about Ron's passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to you. Ron and I shared a lot of good times together. We worked together and had a wonderful time even while on the clock. I look back on those days and smile because of friends like Ron. Whether working or fishing he always had a smile and a laugh for the people around him. He truly will be missed by many.
