  Janis Henderson Ronnie and my sister, Cheri, were both in Glenwood and then at Taylor Ridge at the same time. They both also worked at Innovative Industries. Ronnie was also so happy. He would come up and give Cheri a hug and Cheri would say " Ronnie you need to shave". Ronnie was a very special guy and will be missed so much by our family. Sending thoughts and prayers to your family.

We are so sorry to hear about Ronnie. We so enjoyed when the Rotarians went to Taylor Ridge and had the BBQ and sang songs - Ronnie always "sang his heart out" and we enjoyed it as much as he did!! He will be greatly missed - he was always so happy and friendly. Our sympathies to the family.
