My Brother Ron enjoyed a bountiful life here on Earth and his contribution of worth to scores along the way was not small! He was my Big Brother and equally most importantly--my friend throughout my life. He will be greatly missed and at the same time heralded as a driving force for good and purpose in his fine extended family.

R.I.P. Brother!

Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. I live in Prairie Grover, AR and occasionally check the Joplin Globe obituaries trying to keep track of old friends. Many times I've thought about the fun we used to have. I was very saddened to read about Ron.
