Memories Timeline


  1. It is with deepest sorrow and sadness that I write this tribute to you. 
    I always enjoyed Uncle Ron’s digital Christmas displays he programmed on the computer. I owe my passion of coding computer programming languages to him. I was around 11 or 12 years old when Pat and Ron bought me my first programming book for the Commodore 64 as a Christmas gift. Little do folks know he was my inspiration for becoming a computer programmer. I enjoyed a successful career in information technology; none of that would have been possible if it was not for my Uncle Ron inspiring me at such a young age all the cool stuff you could do on a computer! 

    I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. 

    Rest In Peace Uncle Ron.
