Ron’s life and mine intersected at a time when we were both looking for answers. I will never forget him sharing -”we get the wrong answers because we ask the wrong questions”. It started me on path about searching for the right questions- understanding that the most important thing in life was to know God, to obey God, to love God- and as Ron quipped “to watch out for big trucks!” Interspersed between wisdom and wit, Ron was the mentor that I needed not as a preacher but as a man seeking to know God. A mentor who was just himself, unafraid to admit that he was working out his own life day by day. Ron could say more in a sentence than most will say in a lifetime.
