Barb & Family. I'm so sorry for the loss of such a great man. Ron was always smiling, funny guy and wearing those shorts in the summer. Met him for the first time in 2001,I wont forget him here at Air Wisconsin. When he retired I took his position here at AWAC. I would run in to him at Menards, Kwik Trip and I would always get that huge smile and a big hug. God Bless you Ron.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Ron was one of the nicest guys I ever met. While living in Appleton it was almost a guarantee that I would run into him on my visits to Menards. I feel privileged to have worked with him as long as I did and he taught me a lot along the way. My prayers and thoughts are with his family.

Just saw Ron at the ZW get together. I started with the airline in maintenance at 19 years old, of course Ron was the old man. He mentored many of us and was good at it. He stood out in all the different rolls he had in maintenance. Always approachable. Sorry for your loss.
