Ron's passing is a loss to so many who knew him or were privileged to have experienced him at work. Although not mentioned in his obituary Ron served on the Board of Fairfield County Historical Parks. His guidance and support were invaluable in making sure that the parks survived and that they are a vital part in improving the quality of life for so many. A musician, an artist and magician, Ron brought joy and the love of nature to all he met. He will never be replaced. Our most sincere condolences to Tobi and his family.

Tobi, So sorry to hear of Ron's death. Seems like a zillion years ago since Land Lab days at New Lex. Ron was a great guy. I remember picking up a huge owl that had been killed on the highway and called him to see if he wanted it. He took it to stuff or whatever, but warned me not to do it again because it was against the law to be in possession of even a dead one!!! I, too, lost my husband recently. Stay strong and be thankful for the time you had together, but accept that you will have some crappy days. If you need someone to talk/text with, feel free to send me an email and we can exchange numbers. Sincerely, Bea Baker

Tobi- What a shock! We are so sorry for your loss. We always thought there would be more late night coffee stops. We still tell the story about hiding in the woods in the middle of the night when Ron was trying to “call in” wild animals and he accidentally called in the park rangers. I think about going to the swamp Fly fishing for the big bluegills, and Ron helping me back into the boat after I fell out, and me helping him when he stepped into a hole and his waders filled up with water. There is no doubt that Ron will be greatly missed by family, friends, and nature and art lovers. Tobi, please call us and make plans to come to Greenville. (Connie 740-215-9994)
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Our heartfelt condolences go to Tobi and family. Working with Ron to build a float for the Christmas parade between the Port Charlotte Lions and the Punta Gorda Lions was a beginning of a great friendship. His dedication to Lionism and other organizations showed how much he truly gave back to his community.
