Ron was the type of guy that could make you look forward to coming into work just because you knew he was going to be there. You knew there was going to be a joke and a friendly smile waiting for you. Ron was always easy-going and very approachable, we could talk about anything. One day we even discussed death...I asked him what he would like to hear everyone saying about him when he passes.. Ron's answer..."LOOK! HE'S MOVING!"
U will truly be missed my friend!!

Life Stories

Ronnie was a very special first cousin and friend. We grew up together with my brother, Larry Coalson, and Ronnie's brother Glen and sisters Frances and Elizabeth. Ronnie was so much fun, he could turn the most dull situation into a good time! He was there for me during weddings and funerals and fun times in Laughlin, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Detroit. He was always ready with a joke and a laugh. I love Ronnie so much and it breaks my heart that this good guy has been taken away. Go with God Ronnie and may Heaven open its doors wide open for you!
