      I watched Ron grow up as he went school with my daughter Kayleigh. He was always such a good-hearted, fun, athletic kid. I will remember Ron most as one of those goofy fun middle school kids at outdoor school. I am so saddened to hear this news; too young to leave us. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ron’s parents and family.

  2. Donna Elliott, Coach says:

    The Lord made us with a purpose. Ron had fulfilled his purpose. The Lord never makes mistakes. He created a Wonderful young man. Ron played football for me at THS when he was a freshman. He was a tenacious, hard hitting LB and yet a true gentleman off the field. I will never forget the times I got to catch-up at Dutch Bros’. I will miss his handsome smiling face and all the kind words he would say. To Young, to soon,
    for us to lose him.
