Please accept my most heartfelt condolences. Sorry I was unable to attend Rons funeral as I was working in the southern part of the state today. May it be a little comfort to you knowing that whenever I am riding my bike, Ron will be riding along side, free and with the wind in his face. I know he will be missed by many in the ALRA.

Dear Kathy, Family & Friends, When we first met Ron back in 1982 at the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. we did not realize at the time how much richer our lives would become. Ron's circle of family and friends in the great "Fox Valley" took us into their lives and hearts and that has meant more to us than words can express. Ron departed us way too early but we will meet up again one day. Our love and best wishes to all.
Matthew M. Stevenson left a message on April 6, 2009:
Please accept my heart felt condolences on your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. It was always good to work with Ron on veteran projects which I did a number of years ago. It will be hard to fill all the voids left by his passing and some never will be filled. God Bless - Semper Fidelis! Matt Stevenson
Michael Ubl left a message on April 6, 2009:
My deepest sympathy goes out to Ron's family. I had the pleasure of meeting Ron through the local veteran's club rides that he either organized or sponsored. Whether it was running into him in Tomahawk, the Wooden Nickel, or at the Harley 100th, Ron was one of those guys that I had to introduce to whoever I was with. He never failed to put a smile on a person's face when they met him for the first time. I am deeply saddened by his passing as the Fox Valley area needs more people like him. All my best to Sager family during this troubling time Mike Ubl Member - Fox Valey H.O.G. Chapter

Marlene (Danke)Sauriol left a message on April 6, 2009:
I graduated with Ron from FVL and have seen him off and on after that over the years. When he worked at Town & Country Electric, at the unemployment office and when he planned our 25 class reunion at Paper Valley. And the many exposures of him on the Vietnam veterans scene on television. I am so sorry to hear about Ron's passing. It doesn't seem possible. He did so much good for so many people. I live in Lakewood now rather than Appleton for the last ten years. Broke my ankle last month so can't leave the house yet or I would attend his service. I still keep up with Appleton activities. His mom shared assisted care with my mother in Neenah for a short time. Again, please know that we share your unexpected grief. God be with you! Marlene Sauriol

I am serving at Camp Atterbury, Indiana and will be unable to attend any of the services for Ron. However, I greatly appreciated his service in Vietnam and thereafter on behalf of all veterans. I am sure the Supreme Commander will find a place for Ron in Heaven's VA office.
Fran left a message on April 6, 2009:
We here at Post 202 ALR join you in your sorrow for your great unexpected loss. By the brief description of Ron he sounded like a fellow Vietnam Vet that lived life to it's fullest loving what he did and doing what he loved. As hard as it is for friends and family, that is just how the good Lord took him to Post Everlasting, on his bike. God bless him, Our prayers are with you Kathleen For God and Country Fran Curtis Founder and Pres. ALR202 Master Sergeant USA (retired)
