Our sincere condolences to Nadine and girls. Ron and I met many years ago as co-workers and we soon became friends. He was my fishing partner, and we enjoyed many outings together. He would beam ear to ear whenever he spoke of his girls. It is with great sadness that I write this out of selfishness, as I know he is in God's loving care and free of ailments. May it bring the family some comfort to know that you are in ours prayers and thoughts. Tight lines Bro.... Rick and Carol Dumas

I didn’t find out I even had brothers until I was a teenager! Rick and I hit it off instantly! We’ve kept in touch all these years, with several visits from Rick through the years. Our last visit was my daughters wedding when Rick and Kara canes out to celebrate with us! A loving and caring man! You will be missed bro!💗🙏🏼🤗
