Memories Timeline


  1. Saddened to read of Ron's passing. We played a lot of basketball at Emerson Ele. shot pool at the bowling alley and for a while he worked with me delivering the Daily Journal. Although I lost touch with Ron or Jinks as we all called him I thought of him fondly often. He was and is a treasured memory . God bless him.

  2. Patti. So sorry to read of Ron's passing. Wayne and I lived next door to you and your family. Remember all the family as great neighbors. We called him Jinks. He and Gary St. Gemme and Gary Laird were at our house a lot. Always wonder what happen to you and Jinks. He was a great kid. Will keep you and your family in my prayers.
