Ron was a favorite teacher and a wonderful influence on me when I was young. In this time of loss, may you be comforted by the positive, indelible mark Ron made upon generations of young people.

Chris and family,
I was very sorry to hear (from Liz ) about Ron 's passing. Please know that you are in my prayers. Having a special fondness for French horn, I always enjoyed his music.
May God's peace surround and uphold you at this time.

Dearest Chris, We are both so very sorry about Ron`s passing--but all can find comfort that he is now at peace in a better place-and making/listening to beautiful music with all the other angels!! Our prayers are with you and your loved ones. Ron`s delightful sense of humor shall always live on in our hearts and we send you our love, Bill and Linda Harrison--Friends in Music (and almost related)

I am so sorry to learn of Ron's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him at Easter for the past twelve years when Schenectady Brass played for the First United Methodist Church Easter service. He always arrived very well prepared and with a joyful spirit willing to share his musical gifts. It was a pleasure to work with him over the years. He will be missed.

He gave one of his very best performances as our Neighbor for more than 40 years. In the Dictionary, under "N" there is a picture of Ron Patrick. A fine human being, my entire family is privileged to know Ron & Christine, as we sometimes shared the agonies of Crawford Road in the Winter. I cherish my memories of his happy face and his cheery wave as he sailed down the hill in his old red truck, with Possum by his side, hearing his horn practice on the wind, and will miss him much.
