Ron started out as my boss and mentor helping me get started in the flooring business . A few years later he invited me to go fishing with him and his sons and son-in-laws. After that trip I became his boat partner every year for the next 20 plus years. He always made me feel like part of his family. Some of my best memories are of those fishing trips with him and his boys. Many times we would head out late in afternoon to find our favorite slip bobbing spotted and anchor in. While the boys would go off and chase those walleyes around. We would sit there and chat waiting for the bite to start. He would always say "the boys will be here soon". Sure enough pretty soon we would hear their anchors splashing in right on top of ours and their bobbers landing right next to ours. Those were always great times we had sitting there as the sun went down. Now his own sunset has come but those times with him will live on forever in my memories. I will miss my friend and boat partner.
