I met Ron while I was working in the Custom Framing Department at Hobby Lobby off of Barry Road in KC. He brought in so many different pieces for me to frame and from the minute I met him, we instantly clicked. He was our favorite customer and we had his phone number memorized because we call him all of the time!! He was such a genuine and sweet soul, and he always had a funny story to tell. One of my favorite memories of him was when he invited our whole department over to his house for an "ice cream social", he showed us his beautiful home, and we got to see all of the artwork we had custom framed for him. Although I haven't seen him in several years, I've always thought about him and he will be deeply missed.

Such good thoughts run through my mind when I think of Codger. Special memories but I especially like the humorous times the best. He was a kid at heart and enjoyed playing, teasing or scaring the littles. Every time I picture him, I see him perfecting his golf swing. He was one of a kind. Sending prayers to his friends and family. My heartfelt sympathy, Becky

Ron, Your last few years were challenging and often frustrating for you, particularly as it related to your sundry health issues and increasing mobility limitations. However, through all your many challenges you maintained a smile, offered a joke and inquired about our well-being, all of which served to remind us just how lucky we were to call you our dear friend. In illness as in health you always put the welfare of others ahead of your own. You were as genuine as you were gracious and we feel honored to have called you our friend for 40 plus years. We miss you and will think of you often. Bill & Rose

Codger, what can I say, I miss you and love you very much. I know you are in a better place and are having fun playing golf and all the fun things you do. Rest in peace Codger and know you are well remembered and thought of and missed very much. Love you Codger!

Ronnie was my biggest Big Brother, and I remember how protective he was of us kids, and all the ball games we used to travel to when his sons were playing. I moved away to California, but I enjoyed several visits with Ron and his different beloved pups at his home in Kansas City. Our telephone conversations will join the memories of those visits in enriching my life forever. I miss you much, Ron.
