Man I just checked in after a while not being here. I regret not having met Ron in person. The advise, guidance, and spirit he brought to NWN was nothing less than spectacular. He will be missed here. Luckily for us much of his wisdom and character live on in the folks that he helped.

I am so sorry to hear about you father Chris,
This is a little late, but I have not been on the forums in several years (actually surprised I still have a log in and password). Thank you Gaelen for your memory note on MSN (I would have never known otherwise). Its been a really long time since i have been on NWN or seen some of the core people of NWN, but i am sad that Ron passed on. He was a huge influence, always positive, and there was always something to gain from conversations with him, in person or on NWN.
Chris, I know what it is like to be screwed over by insurance companies, and it recently happened to my fiance and I. I would like to help out.
Ron was a amazing guy that brought years of experience and knowledge to the table. RIP...

I'm so, so sorry to hear. Thanks for acknowledging my name in your message. It really choked me up to see I was mentioned. Your father was such a special man. He did so many thoughtful and selfless things for others in the car community and undoubtedly in other facets of his life. After my dad died he brought me flowers, a CD and a CD case (which I still use to this day).I regret not having been around the last couple of years to have kept in touch with him. Wow, so hard to believe...
It's interesting. Only a month ago I was organizing some shelves in the garage and ran across the Wizard's Shine Master polish he brought up to the Golden Gardens meet for me. He swore by it and just wanted me to share it with me. I hadn't seen that bottle in years and literally a month ago I ran into it and immediately thought of him. The world works in mysterious ways. We are all so blessed to have known such a kind soul.
Thanks for sharing the news with us all, Chris. Your father leaves behind a legacy.

The NW has seriously lost a great community member.

He is one of the only members that I didn't know personally, and I still talk about with friends when recalling the great times of NWN. It was great to be a part of NWN and its community when he was a part of it. Thanks for everything you gave to us when you were still here and be assured it will be with us for years to come.
Much respect to the man and condolences to the family.

Chris, my condolences
Apologies for the late reply as I, like some others have not been frequenting the forums as regularly as I had in the past.
Ron will certainly be missed not only as an ideal role model to the club, or as a member who has been with NWN for a long time, but as a true friend to myself and the Nissan community as a whole.
I still remember the day when you and your father made the long haul to Canada. We had a blast at the BBQ and took a stroll back to PDM with a few beers afterward. I still believe it was the longest distance traveled by any member for any meet. It truly is dedication, as I once had driven to Los Angeles for a Nissan meet back in 2002 (I think). I only wish I had known him back then as my car like SpoolinbyYou had a spill of bad luck in Redding as my fuel pump decided to take a dive on the highway, and was towed to the nearest dealership.
I will remember Ron as a kind, generous and extraordinary person always going out of his way to help his fellow NWN'er offering his knowledge, expertise, and services without ever expecting anything in return. Out of the years I was involved with NWN I cannot think of anyone else who was more dedicated to the club and the community.
I can think of countless gestures by him to others and one example I remember quite clearly is when someone had some of his tools stolen from his garage. Mavro, being another dedicated member who was always willing to help out a fellow enthusiast with his knowledge and expertise had posted up that his tools were stolen. This is a great read, have a look:
Sent me a PM with your PayPal and I would be glad to contribute.
Ron will be missed, Rest in Peace

He was so knowledgeable on cars, it seemed like he had already done everything and always had an answer for me. As a young teenager, he was my "forum father", explaining things to me, giving me advice, and showing me more patience than I can ever say. NWN owes so much to Ron for all his input and guidance. If his presence here was any indication of who he was, he was a great man! He is already missed.

I remember reading many of his posts too back in the day. He will be missed.

I like many of the other "originals" feel a bit of a loss when I read this and we share in your pain, Chris. I didn't have a lot of interaction with Ron, but I remember some of the information he shared with the community. Such a wealth of information. The world has lost one of the great ones as was mentioned earlier. I think we can all strive to live the life that he was able to.
It's good to know that a lot of you are still out there.
