  • Dear Family of Ron,
    I got to visit with Ron a few minutes at the Tomato Show last year. We had many good times when he was on the Board. Ron always wanted to come across as being tough and gruff but he was really a big teddy bear. That soft side came through, especially when he was talking about his family. Dick always enjoyed chatting with Ron at the post office. He will be missed by many. May your memories be comforting to you,
    Chris and Dick Well
