I was so very sorry to hear about Rons death. He was still young and a busy man but we never know what life will bring us. I remember him as a baby and even though we weren't around the boys a lot I have some pictures and they were sweet boys. Hope you all can remember the good times and have a happy life even though he will be greatly missed. Sincerely with Love, Aunt Kathy Wayne (McFadden) and cousin Jessica Wayne, Walker Louisiana

Ron was the big brother I always relied on and for much of my life was my best friend. I will always love you and cherish the great times we had. After a lifetime of working so hard to provide for your family and everyone around you, I hope you can rest peacefully with the knowledge that your strength and wisdom made us all better for having the privilege of you gracing our lives. I will never stop loving you. There will always be hole in my heart that only my big brother could fill and I hope when my time comes you are there like you were for me my whole life. Miss you bro

I'm so blessed to have met Ron. What a great man. He was always working, and he touched so many lives. How many people went to the Clark gas station to see him ?? Or to the movie theater?? Who remembers the green GTO? Car? My heart is just broken to lose him. I was just trying to get ahold of him and His wife. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all on wed. Rest in peace Ron. Hugs

I met Ron many years back through my sister and brother in law (Glenn and Karen Groom). Saw him off and on through the years and he was always such a very kind, big hearted guy. Back in the day he never cared that Karen's little sister was hanging around with them. He always has been such a great guy and will be truly missed by all who ever knew him. My condolences to his wife, kids, and rest of the family. Always remember the great times you had with him, and he will remain in your heart.
