After retiring he and his wife traveled the country via group bus trips. Ron was always in the front seat of the bus, well prepared with his research so that he could assist the bus driver with navigation. As a couple, they were avid supporters of the theater and maintained memberships with Geva and the Rochester Theater League for over 15 years.
Ron was best known for his ability to talk to anyone about anything. With a twinkle in his eye, an infectious chuckle, and a sharp sense of humor, people were drawn to him and remembered him well. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, playing guitar, grilling, cold beer, and knew where all the best foods were in the city.

Friends are invited to join the family Saturday, July 23, 10:00 am at St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish at Annunciation Church, (1754 Norton Street) for his funeral mass with Father Bob Werth officiating.
