Ronnie (Duck) and I grew up together in the Kelly Park area of Sioux City. Why Duck? While playing football one evening in the park as we often did, Ronnie who was not paying attention and was unaware of a ball thrown towards him was told by several screaming individuals to "duck." Rather then duck, he turned in the direction of the ball and took it squarely in the face. Forever after he was to all of us who truly knew and loved him, "Duck." Duck passed away from severe injuries incurred in an automobile accident in 1980.

Ronnie passed away in 1982. His son Jon is a great young man who helped ease the pain Ron's mom experienced losing him so young. She passed away last year and she was at peace to be reunited with Ronnie.
Had he survived we would have been step siblings as his mom and my dad were married in 1983. His quick smile and easy laughter has not been forgotten by his family.

I had lunch with Ron's brother Jim today. We talked a little about Ron.  He died in a single car accident in 1982 while on leave from the United States Navy.  Jim has a large photo Ron hung where he sees it every day.
