    Rest in peace Ron. My condolences to Carol and Ron's family members. I only had a chance to chat with him a few times, but his knowledge helped me turn out some of the best food I ever smoked. RIP Ron
  6. Prayers go out to the family for comfort and understanding during this time. I'm new around here but have spent countless hours searching and reading the archives to educate myself and Ron always would post advice that a newbie could learn from....

    RIP.......and we will always cherish your post....

    So sad to hear the news, I had left him a msg on his cell phone early this afternoon. Carol told me she would let him listen to the msg, when she got to the hospital. I pray for her strength at this time, and I'll always remember Ron. We had got to talking a few times a week since his move. Rest in peace my friend.

    This is a sad week indeed...I had to do a double-take when I saw this thread...we just lost my mother-in-law yesterday....(sigh).

    Although I've never met him, or heard his spoken voice, we shared quite a few good laughs here on the forum. And I truely enjoyed his presence here...a very influential personality, with honest insights.

    I owe my initial interests in beef salamis to Ron, which has since turned into a variety of chopped, cured and smoked meats. He played a major role in my inspirations (probably more than Ron or I could ever know) which I've shared with everyone here on the forums in the past 2 years.

    Well, Ron Man, consider me as another chapter in your written legacy. I'll never forget you or all the good times shared here with you, or all the great inspiration you've given me, brother!

    Thoughts and prayers, that Carol, Ron's smokin' buddies (the pups) and everyone who Ron befriended find peace. I miss ya already, buddy, but I will carry on with what I've learned from you.

    Go with God, Ron.

    Ron, thanks for everything man. Your presence, insights and tips will be greatly missed around here. Your dedication to the craft played a big role in my life as a BBQ hobbyist, as it did so many others, thanks again for being there to help. Rest in peace, my friend.

    Very sorry to hear that Ron passed, I was really hoping he was going to pull through. He will be greatly missed. I haven't been a member for very long but I lurked for a long time and I would read all Ron's posts. I'll never forget when Ron received that case of Yoshidas and the signed autograph and I believe there was a little Mr. Yoshida doll as well. My condolences to Carol.

    RIP RON.

    My condolences to the family. You are all in my prayers. Ron was a great guy, it was easy to tell just from seeing posts on a forum, never having met him in person.
  20. Reading all of these replies to this thread, amazing, it is clear that Ron touched quite a few people in his life.  Unfortunately, I only ever got to read his posts, I never got to know him personally, but it is clear he was loved.

    Rest in Peace Ron, you will be missed.
