I have been employed and associated with Ron I since 1967.  It was a sad day when I heard of his passing.
As an employee of Whiteford Kenworth, I was there at the Sample St. location. Then in the early eighties Ron provided us with two new facilities on Western Ave.  
Many good times have occurred over the years.  My most cherished memory is when Ron I, Ron II, Doug Bennitt and I made a relief effort trip to Mississippi after hurricane Katrina.  I will always remember that, it was very moving.
I was fortunate to attend two of the 90th anniversary celebrations this year.  One in South Bend , which Ron I was too ill to attend and one later in Lafayette, which Ron I was in attendance .  He and I talked of memories that we had.
With regret I am out of state and cannot attend the services. but my thoughts are with you, Flo, Ron II and Cynthia.
My deepest sympathy, Norm Stettler

      I wish to send my condolences to you and your family. You may or may not remember me, I went to Bethany with you. I live in South Bend now and saw the obituary for your dad. He was no doubt a man of immense integrity and faith. He will reap his rewards in the next life! Hope your doing well in your own walk in life, sounds like your carrying on your family business. Take care,
