Condolence & Memory Journal

Was just made aware of Ron's passing! Ron and I were drivers together at Merrill Transport before I became the Terminal Manager. Ron took a couple of long distance runs to Florida for me and always had Jackie do his paperwork when he got back. He loved to drive and was well respected by all the other drivers. I always like Ronnie's big smile and outgoing personality! My thoughts are with his extended family.

Im so very sorry for your family's loss. I will always remember your father and the first time I met him at the Apple Tree Bay campground so many years ago. Such a small world to become friends with you kids and discover our fathers had been friends growing up too. My Grammy Vartui thought a lot of Ronnie when they worked at Merrill's together. Sending Love and hugs your way.
