I have lost the best friend that I've ever had. I've known Ron and Judy for a number of years. Ron and Judy were wonderful people as well as Amy Taylor and Lily. I will sincerely miss Ron but I know he will once again be with Judy and will continue to take care of her.My deepest sympathies to Amy, Taylor, Lily, Jeff and his family, along with Ron's brothers and families.

Good friends are hard to find but when I met Ron I met a one of a kind friend. He had a way of treating you just like family. He always greeted me with a hug and great conversation. I will cherish all my memories of Ron, Huda, and his grandson.

I just met Ron 6 months ago, and we became instant friends. I think he has that effect on people. He always had a positive story and loved to talk to people. He was a treasure that will truly be missed. Wishing Houda and his family peace and comfort during this difficult time. May your memories offer you comfort.

I had the pleasure of working with Ron from August 2019 to January 2021. He was an incredible guy and one of my favorite reasons for showing up to work everyday. I never met any of his family outside of Huda, but I felt like I knew everybody personally because of how much he talked about you all with so much love and pride. I'm truly fortunate I had the chance to not only meet Ron, but to be able to call him my friend. I'm so sorry for you loss. I'll keep you guys in my thoughts and my heart. He will by truly missed.
