Ron and Joy are our very good friends a neighbors. For the past several years we have had a standing date every Friday night to watch 2 movies and dinner at our house. My husband is a huge movie fan and would record movies he thought Ron and Joy would like. Ron favored war movies or adventures. He and my husband both liked any movie with Denzel Washington in it. Joy and I preferred a movie with a story, some animals and some romance. We introduced Ron and Joy to some of our favorite comedy’s. A special favorite was “Weekend at Bernie’s” a hilarious and irreverent comedy. We watched it twice with a third planned for when he came home. He was a special man and we will miss him always!

Our sincerest sympathy the Joy and her family. Ron was a remarkable man and he will be missed by so many. We will never forget our time with him in Florida, he times with us in Spencer. We were always amazed to see and hear about his next adventure and all of his travel plans, remarkable. We had some get nights with Ice Cream and all the toppings. Ron was a dear friend and a man full of love, care and compassion about everything he did. He loved those donkeys, like his pride and joy. May he rest in peace as he will be greeted by Uncle Lester Miller. We will miss our many visits and his compassionate ways. Tonight we are having a bowl of ice cream in honor of our dear friend Ron. God Bless you Joy.

I worked with Ron at FCCI- he was a stand up guy, who was a credit to his profession. Joy, you are in my thoughts in this difficult time. Take care.

Ron will be sorely missed. I only knew him for the past few years, but he was smart, funny, and had fascinating stories. And his attention to detail was awe-inspiring - even to his lawyer! His heart was huge; his love for Joyce was shown in everything he did, and he also loved animals, big and small. He was a wonderful man, and my life was made a little better just by knowing him.

Ron was a dear friend and one of the kindest men I have ever met in my life. I will aspire to his generosity and gentle character. He was respected and admired because he was so genuine and approachable. He was a man of deep principle but never forceful with his own opinions. He knew how to listen, and digest, and respond with thoughtfulness. I will miss him and how he enriched my life. I am a better man for having known and spent time with him. He will be greatly and truly missed.

Ron was one of a kind. He was gentle, kind and thoughtful. You always knew if you needed something he would be there in a heartbeat. I have known him since I was 15. He lived next door to me when we were in HS. Great memories I will cherish until I see him again. He was loved dearly and will be missed greatly. RIP my friend.
