What can be said about a man that has not already been said. Ron befriended me when I came to Sherwood several years ago and remained a friend that I could rely on to be there when I needed him. When he told me about his problem that would eventually take him from us, he said that he was going to whip it. Unfortunately for us it did not work out, but he is in a much better place, smiling, laughing and carrying on like nothing ever happened. Ron - I miss you and will forever remember you as a true and loyal friend, and I thank you for being part of my life.
It's difficult to think of Ron and not hear that wonderful laugh he had and always a smile for everyone. We have lost a truly kind and generous man.
Not many people have a love of life and their profession as Ron.
In Life many people cross our paths, Theresa and I feel very blessed that Ron crossed ours.
Our sympathies go out to Ron's family, take care!
Dear Lemerond family, Ron was one of our original customers 34 years ago. He always had a friendly smile and a funny story to tell, he was infectious to listen to. He will be surely missed. Good thoughts and prayers to your family.
Rest in Peace Ron. I have known Ron for a very long time and the thing I will always remember him by is his mild nature and his smile. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. May the future bring only pleasant memories of Ron.
Indeed, Ron will be missed. What a great guy he was! I can remember him back to the days of him representing F.J. Pechman Color lab, bringing the brown jars of Kaukana cheese on each visit. Then on to Burrell Color lab out of Indiana. He will be missed by his two friends in Dubuque- Vaughn Kray and Greg Nauman- also known as "The Doctors" at the Iowa Photographer's conventions. We had a great time with him, always. My deepest sympathies to the family.
Sorry to hear about Ron. Always enjoyed seeing him. He took the high school graduation pictures of our sons, so I think of Ron all the time as the pictures are in my office My condolences to the entire family.
I haven't known Ron a long time. He was my friend Ron Jr. Father. Ron was always great to me and joking around, uplifting even. I wish I could have known him longer. To my friend Ron Jr. I say, I know your dad loved you very much. You are left with great memories of your dad some of which you've shared with me. I am so sorry you have lost your dad, you can be thankful for the time you had with him and the pleasure and pride you gave him. He is lost to you, but you still have friends and family who care for you very much. If you or your family need anything I and your many friends at Diane Manor are there for you.
I have known Ron for almost 40 years. We met professionally as competitors part of the time, co-workers part of the time Friends all of the time. Two favorite memories, The night we built a brick wall in front of the Art Leather rep's hotel room door at the Illinois state convention, and the night a group of us went to dinner at a Burrell sales meeting in Florida and Ron got annoyed at the noise from the staff singing Happy Birthday to someone. Cost of a dinner back then, about $10.00, average tip, about 10 - 12 %, the look on Ron's face as he realized we had told the staff it was his birthday and they were singing to him ---PRICELESS!!! Many happy memories of that infectious smile and laugh of his and the great times we had together. I only wish we had lived closer together so we could have more great times. You will be missed by a great many people my friend, I will never forget you.
It would be impossible to put one time, one happening to describe Ron. From the first time I met him almost 40 years ago at the Pechman Studio I knew this was a man who loved people, loved life. The times that developed through the years, seeing his devilish smile while we rolled a 1/4 barrel on a luggage cart from door to door at a fall conference to hearing his laugh in delight after my infant son sneezed baby cereal on him while he feed him after one of his stays with us on his travels. Sweet memories of a man I was honored to call my friend...he will be missed!
Good By my friend you will be deeply missed
Our sympathy goes out to all of the family from Lorenas friends at Charleston Point in De Pere,
Ron loved people, and he is loved for that. His undaunted enthusiasm and joy of live is a glue that ties us all together as we celebrate his spirit.
He is a jolly good fellow, that nobody can deny.
