Ron was the best boss that I've ever had. I worked for him as a youngster in the onion and celery fields for 13 years. He even took me to a Detroit Tigers baseball game. I remember on a hot day, that he would tell everyone to stop work and take us to the beach for a swim and bbq after. He was a very kind and caring person, always happy and smiling. I'm sure Ron has a special spot in heaven playing baseball with the "all stars." You meet only a few people in life that truly make a lasting impression on you... and Ron was that one in a million for me. My condolences on your loss. My apologies that I didn't know in time to pay my respects to him and his family in person.

We were so very sorry to hear of Ron's passing. Sharon and I wish to send our most sincere condolences to the family at this time of your loss. Our thoughts of Ron are most pleasant, as we met you at the Carruthers Clan gathering in London on Labor Day of 2018. He was such a gentleman! I was very honored and privileged to have been able to meet with him and share some of his stories. I remember helping getting him settled in the chair at the front of the staircase for the Clan pictures. I know I speak for the entire Clan when I say his passing is a loss for all us. Patrick E. Carrothers, Chief, Clan Carruthers
