Barbara, so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and your family. My one big memory is when Barb told me years ago that we were so lucky to be married to our husbands because we had the best husbands. We were both young and very lucky to find Christian men and to be married over 50 years. Dwight and Pat Schindler

Ron and Barb befriended and supported me during a teacher exchange I took part in, moving to the USA from Scotland in 1985-86. Their friendship and Ron’s constant good humour and fun helped to make it a special year. It is with great sadness that I have heard of Ron’s passing and I send love to Barb and the rest of the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Barb, Doug, and Dan, Essilee and I were very saddened to hear of Ron's going to Heaven so young. We are 94 and 93 and wishing that we could go, but he was young! What a good guy Ron was! We really enjoyed knowing him at Centennial. He had a great sense of humor! One day on a little side street in Mexico he pulled us over in his patrol car and came walking up to our car with a big smile to say howdy. He sure had us wondering until we could see him! We pray that God will help you all to adjust to life without Ron. May God bless all of you. Love, Essilee and Bud

Barb and Family, We sorrow at the loss of Ron here knowing that the Lord is hosting him where there is no sorrow or pain. He always brought us joy and closer to God as a quintessential Christian gentleman. With Covid and Larry's immune-compromise post chemoradiation therapy for esophageal cancer, we will be with you in spirit at Ron's memorial gathering.

I will miss our birthday breakfast get togethers, our Christmas Chinese food celebrations, and sharing my Creamer with him. Koven and Logan will miss is famous deer jerky but Most of all we will miss him and his smile. ❤️

So sorry to hear about Ron but know that he is with the Lord in glory. I remember when we first met you both. It was at centennial Baptist church when I led a lay renewal and we stayed with you that weekend and enjoyed our friendship over the years. Will be praying for you and your family in your loss. Just hold on to all of those great memories that God has allowed you to be together and know one day we will be reunited again in heaven. Ron always had that big smile and knew me anything he saw us. God bless you and your family. Jimmie and Barbara Stewart

We are so blessed to have know Ron. Barb, I remember being in awe of him as a teenage in Mexico, MO. It was a blessing to have my children know him in Jefferson City. I know he’s heard, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Such a kind man and example of the love of Jesus. Prayers for peace and comfort for you during this time. (I’m sorry we’re unable to come Thursday. I know God will have the perfect service for him.) ❤️Beth

Dear Barb, Doug and family, Dan and family, We are all heartbroken to hear of Ron's passing. I personally have fond memories of visiting you in Jeff city Mexico etc. He was one to always be interested in what was going on in your life. Full of a laughter and that infectious smile. Heaven has truly gained another true angel. I know we don't see each other but please know you and Ron have always been thought of and asked about throughout these years. We love you and hope that time will bring you the peace he would want for all of you. Maybe sometime soon we can visit. But for now you are not far from me with my heartfelt sympathy. Your cousin Much Much Love Cathy
