Ron was one of the first guys I met whenI started my buildings andgrounds job. I had no idea how the phone system worked and yetI was in charge of it. Thank God for Ron. He was so much fun and I learned so much from him. We bonded over our West Viriginia connection, operator error and life in general. I was truly heart broken when my district went VOIP and I lost my D&S support team. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends, he will be missed very much.Sally Wyman
