We were so sorry to hear of Ron's passing and send our sincerest sympathy to the whole family. Ron and I served together on parent/teacher committees at Saint Anne's, and he definitely brought enthusiasm and good cheer to all of our meetings and activities. Heather remembers him as the best lunch duty parent (not scary at all) and a great freeze dancer at Meg's birthday parties. We hope all of your happy memories will bring you comfort.

Ron was a good friend when we were in school at Notre Dame , we had a few dates when we were going out now and then.
Sorry for you loss, I didn't know the family after we graduated but always remember Ron as a great friend.

It was with great sadness that we learned of Ron's passing. He will be forever remembered as a jovial soul, friendly beyond compare and welcoming to all who were lucky enough to cross his path.
Ron is the husband of my mother's cousin, Mary Le Blanc. I first met him while traveling in 1991 and all subsequent travels that brought me through Boston over the years that followed, allowed me to catch up with Ron and my extended family.
Meeting up with Ron was always looked forward to; for I knew that we'd have a laugh and his company was never anything less than enjoyable. I will miss that as much as I will cherish the memory of the times we all enjoyed together.
We last met a couple of days before I ran the 2007 Boston marathon. It was a dreadful day and the weather was going to get worse. I wasn't in the best shape and the race was in doubt up until an hour before the start. Ron and Mary met me for lunch and I was somewhat pensive. I'd also decided to leave the law, a decision not overly welcomed by others. Ron lightened the mood and when we discussed my impending plans for 'unemployment' he just said that if I wasn't happy in what I was doing, I should trust myself and it would all come good in the end. His words were very much appreciated then as they are today.
I was briefly back in London and a few hours from flying back to Asia, when I received the news he had passed. I was with my mother who also knew and loved Ron well and with my father, enjoyed Ron's warmth and hospitality. She simply said, 'We will miss Ron!'
Indeed we will and may those he leaves behind find strength to go on as I am sure he would want them to. May we never forget what how simply being a nice and genuine person enlightens us all.
You're train is in Ron, rest in peace our dear friend.

My sincere condolences to all of Ron's family.
I spent many days with Ron in our younger days just goofing off on my family farm and in grade school at Notre Dame. I have many good memories and Ron will always be in my heart.
May God bless him .
Sincerely, Ray Freniere
