Ronnie and Marjorie were an important part of our life at St. David's Episcopal Church. Shared with them in small study group, Marriage Encounter, etc. He always supplied the pancake flour for the Shrove Tuesday pancake feed. I have missed him since I retired.

Dad, you were the toughest, strongest, most loving man I've known. Thank you for raising me the way you did! Camping, fishing, hunting. You are so missed! Fly high, pain free!
