Went to school with Ron&s daughter Joy and got to know Ron when I worked out at Quality Farm & Fleet and he worked at the Throckmorten Farm. I always enjoyed talking to him when he would come in to shop and thought a lot of him, he will truley be missed, he was a great guy.

I have known Ron for a little over a year. Along with Harold and a couple others we would meet for breakfast every Friday at Mc Donalds. My heart is sadden by his sudden passing. He will be greatly missed by all of those whom he touched including me.

Ron always made me laugh. He reminded me so much of my Dad that I felt comfortable talking to him. Draw upon the Lord for comfort and know that someday we all will be together.

Condolances to all those he left behind.

In His Service, Val.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Wilma and family I am so sorry for your loss. It saddens me to know that the one and only ""kadiddlehopper"" as we as young kids called him is gone. But rest assured that God needed a special helper and he took Ronnie but now he is in a better place, no more suffering or pain. I would like to say it gets easier as thime goes by but I can&t because none of my pain has gone away from losing Mom. And all my Aunts and cousins who have left this earth to be in Gods hands this year is hard to cope with. But please know I will be with all of you as you go into this journey of letting him go, maybe I wont be there in person but I will be with you in your heart and soul. I love you all and God Bless. R.I.P. Rondel (kadiddlehopper)Blankenship.
