    So sorry for your loss. Ronnie was such a really nice man. His parents and brother, were also. My family lived just down the street. We all grew up going to the same church. He will surely be missed. Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you. Wayne and Susie Brock

    Ron and I were FSHS 1963 graduates. We had many classes together. I often stopped in Freedmans to say HI and chat with Ron when in town. My condolences to his family.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing, I worked with him from 1982 until our final days at Freedmans and later at IGA. He was an ideal boss/supervisor and had patience that’s uncommon now. May he rest in Peace.

    We grew up across the street on Walnut Ave. My first memory is going to the Roxy with my brothers and Ronnie to watch White Christmas. Our mother, Dody Miller worked with Ronnie at Freedman’s for many years. We all enjoyed reminiscing. Our condolences to his family. RIP
