I was very sad to hear of the passing of Ronnie. Although I haven't seen him in a long time, I remember his kindness and all the fun times back in high school days. My deepest sympathy and prayers go to all the Tallaksens...may he rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with Ron's family. Ron was a very giving person, he would give you his tires off his truck if you needed them and I think he did do that for a friend back in the day. He smiled from his heart and enjoyed the simply things in life. Rest in peace.

My uncle gave me my first car and first job, along with with many of my cousins. He was always good for a laugh and some hard work. I will miss him always.

My deepest sympathies to Marianne, Kim and Kevin and to all of Ronnie's family. He had a kind and generous heart and was always a good friend to me. He once tried to help babysit my Elizabeth when I was flat out of sitters and I was dashing last minute to an unexpected business meeting. He was so kind. He also recovered a piece of motor bike TRASH from my basement, worked on it and gave it life! My heart hurts to know that he has passed. But I also know for sure that he was welcomed into the arms of God.
