 May Ronnie rest in peace. He was a longtime friend from grade school & high school. I enjoyed renewing our acquaintance through the golf course. He was so kind to loan me his books on the history of Sharpe, which we both shared an interest in. He will be missed by the Class of '64 of NMHS. My condolences to his remaining family members.
