I am very sorry to miss Ron’s celebration of life. He really did breathe life into the library. He was always the one who volunteered to pick up conference speakers, job candidates and vendors at the airport. He spontaneously purchased treats and meals for students on a regular basis. Ron claimed he didn’t have a green thumb, yet he was always bringing in plants to liven up the place. The popular DVD collection at the library would not be as robust as it is without Ron’s donations. Lastly, I have never seen Ron happier than when he was the trivia game show host for student events, not only for student employees, but also during class nights and welcome week. He was the most generous and compassionate person I have ever worked with. Sending my condolences but also celebrating Ron’s gracious life.
