Jack,Sherrie and family. So very sorry for your loss. Obviously Ron was a highly respected intelligent good man. He will be missed by many. Jack and Sherrie, no parent should ever have to lose a child. My mother has told me many times she would never get over losing Brad. Y’all have been such a great influence to so many people in the Branson area. Y’all have always been a shining example of sharing God’s love with all you touched. I know Pete and all of your family just lost Jodi. As Christians we can take solace in knowing we will all be together again. And what a glorious day that will be. I often dream of that day. Just wanted to offer my condolences to the whole family. Until we meet again, Stephen Wayne Barker

Ron and I worked together at Silver Dollar City in the early 1980s. I was one of the young fellows playing "Junior Dugan" at Rube Dugan's Diving Bell and Ron was our area manager then. He was a good guy and a great family man. All best wishes to his family and friends during this difficult time. -Mark Kumming, Pea Ridge, AR (Silver Dollar City employee 1978-1984.)

My most sincere sorrow for the grief I know Ron's family is suffering now. He was a very good and generous man. He was kind and loving to everyone and always seemed to wear a smile. I spent an evening with him a few weeks ago, and he seemed upbeat about his health. I will miss Ron terribly.
Terry & Jana Blevins left a message on December 19, 2018:
Heartfelt condolences to Ron's family. Many years since we visited in person, but we were trading messages back in the summer about trying to get together over the Labor Day weekend. Sadly we weren't able to make connection, but I will see him again. Prayers for Melissa, his children, and Jack and Sherry.
