My Uncle Ron

It has been busy since the 4th of July. My uncle Ron passed away. He was a very cool guy and did a lot of great things in his life. He taught middle school and after retirement he traveled all over the world. He was also an avid skier and had many, many friends. This is an older photo of him but it shows his great smile. I was able to spend some time with him more recently and we chatted about the marathon. I was glad that he got to know me as an adult, instead of knowing me as the little 9 year old girl he knew when he accompanied my family on camping trips. He will be missed.

I'm sorry to hear of your sounds like he lived a very full life.

Hi Irene

I'm sorry for your loss. You uncle looks like a super guy. Sounds like he really embraced life and had a full one. I hope to be so lucky.

Thanks Sarah and Cathy. We found a photo of him participating in a 13k event -- perhaps running is partially genetic? :)
