I served with Ron in the 101st in Vietnam in 1970-1971. I was lucky enough to make contact with him after 40 years (thanks to Quick). We shared many phone conversations (loved talking to him). Two weeks ago Quick and I were able to make the trip to his home to see Ron and meet his wonderful family and friends. I had a great time and was very thankful that Quick and I could make the trip. I will never forget that day and the memories we shared. Ron was a great guy with a great wife and family. He will truly be missed by all. Sincerely, Foxie
