He was a carrier supervisor for the US Post Office for 31 years. Ron was proud of his Polish heritage and also very proud of his service in the 101 st Airborne. He was a member of the Ithaca Elks and the Lansing Rod & Gun Club.

Ron and Jerry enjoyed traveling together and relished their summers on Owasco Lake and their winters in Florida. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, golf, gardening and berry picking along with playing cards with family and friends. He especially enjoyed and looked forward to his time spent at the deer barn with the boys! We have all benefitted greatly from his excellent carpentry skills.

His family will deeply miss his stories, singing and the whistling that never ended.
