Ronnie was a Franklin classmate, a friend and a cousin. A natural leader who everyone admired. Talked with him occasionally and exchanged Christmas Cards. Worked with him on our 50th Reunion.and Helen and I looked forward to seeing Ronnie and Peggy at the annual Franklin Alumni Meeting. R.I.P Ronnie and Peggy - you are missed.

I went to school with Ronnie, for 12 years, graduating with him from Franklin High. He was a natural leader, and I always sooked up to and respected him. Even in HS he demonstrated a calm dignity that demanded respect, while exhibiting humility. I didn't see him often the last few years, but will miss him regardless. R.I.P., Ronnie.

Grew.up in less than half a mile from Ronnie and his brother Bruce. The three of us along with others our age wore out several bikes and had great times together. He was a great guy and I'm sure will be missed by many.
