Art History was Ron's favorite class in college and reportedly his only "A"; he had an eye for color and appreciated beauty. He enjoyed baseball, travel, tennis, and beach sunsets. He and Karen lived in Dunwoody for many years where he was active at Dunwoody UMC. In retirement he spent 9 years at Kiawah Island where he made many close friends and found significance in service to others.
Ron was quiet, with a wonderful sense of humor. Life with him was a journey with much laughter and no recriminations. During his last illness he exemplified great courage and a positive outlook, making plans, and always expecting the best. He leaves a legacy of faith and living life on life's terms.
