Hello Margie,I am so saddened to hear about Ron. Wish I could be there for you now. Billy Graham once wrote,”The same hand that made trees and fields and flowers,the seas and the hills,the clouds and the sky,has been making a home for us called heaven.” I know how you will miss him but find comfort in the truth that he is at peace with the Lord.Love,Rose

Mrs Zellars, I am sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. I worked for him at Ferro and he was fair, and always concerned about his fellow workers. A few years back, my wife had some medical issues and Ron would always make sure to ask how she was and how I was doing, and for this I will always respect him. I am sorry for your loss.

Dear Margie, I just learned of Ron’s passing. We lost touch of late, but he was a good friend in high school, and my college room mate at Beverly Avenue in Morgantown. We worked in the steel mills, too. I’m so very sorry for your loss. He lived a lot longer than he once thought he would. Back in the day of the Vietnam war, we were having a party to watch the draft lottery. Big party. We all put some cash in a pot to be won by the person with the lowest draft number, based on your birth date. The beer was flowing. The lottery numbers had just started when they called thirteen. Ron jumped up, beat his hands on the floor, convinced he was going to die for sure in some jungle. It was scary and a funny time. Ron always made us smile. God Bless.
