    This gentleman was the text book colleague. Always knowledgeable, always positive, always creative. Never witnessed him in a moment of anger; yet, frequently with a smile. Truely, Ron has been missed.

    I worked with Ron for many years and I don’t know of anyone who was more dedicated and hardworking. As engineering manager and applications engineering, he had a wealth of knowledge. He often could come up with multiple concepts for any design opportunity. When he became sick he continued to be dedicated and hardworking, while undergoing harsh medical procedures. Tough as nails, I never once heard him complain. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Ron all those years. Rest in the Lord brother and we’ll catch up later.

  • I worked with Ron for almost 10 years and respected him very much. He was such a wonderful guy and I’m sure he will be missed by all. My condolences go to his children and grandchildren. I will pray for God to give you all peace, grace, and comfort during the days ahead.
