Ron, It was so wonderful to have you in our family for the past nine years. From the first day I met you, camping in our yard at Bike Week, we knew what a great guy you were and how lucky June and you were to have found each other. We will continue to celebrate all the good times we had together. Enjoy that Big Ride in the Sky.

Ron, I was so blessed to have spent so much of the last year with you. You helped me through my time of sorrow. You are the kindest, funniest man I ever met. We shared food and fun watching the games together. Love you forever.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

"Life isn't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride." Hopefully this phrase encompasses the message and what you meant to us. Thank you for being here for all of these years, and being the "principal" for the times when I worked on school. Maybe I'll go to the Terrapins, depending on how their basketball team does. Thanks again.

I saw this sign in a coffee shop. Read it to Ron slightly modified. He said, "Put that on my box." MOTTO TO LIVE BY: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Slim Jim in one hand, Coors Light in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!" Thrilled to have been along for the ride these last nine years Babe. RIP. I will love and miss you forever.

So sorry for your loss. Ron was always great to me and my family. I hope I get to play some pool with him later.

My heart is broken. A piece is missing. Even though I know Ronnie is pain free and in a better place. I was so blessed to have him as my brother and friend and I am so thankful. Growing up with Ronnie I have so many great memories, (Upland, Family gatherings, Playing w/friends, Duck Duck (Tom) 1st cat, Speed Racer, Batman, horses, cats, dogs especially Killer, OLofcharity (Mrs. Verna), bunk beds, bikes, swimming, football, baseball, softball and even kickball out in the street and more sports, etc., cookouts, motorcycles, minibikes (sorry Mom w/Eddie doing wheelies, etc.) Playing Pool, Community Center, West Nottingham, football and baseball games, and too many more to list. Ronnie stepped up to the plate as a father figure for Rob which I was so grateful. Both he and Eddie were always there for us even in all our many moves. He had such a big personality and a sense of humor. He was such a hard worker (even till his passing) and was such a fun, loving guy. He had a heart of gold and was a very giving man. He was also known for his amazing big smile and big beautiful blue eyes. Through the years I would get so excited seeing Ron Smith's Refrigeration and Heating truck on the road. Sometimes he would stop and talk or I would say to myself, that's my brother. Now Ron you can R.I.P., a job well done!. Someday we will be reunited. Please hug Dad, Nannie and the rest of the family for us. Ronnie so proud of you and one more thing You left such a void, everyone loves Ron Smith. Praying for our family. Your loving forever sister, Terrie

Sending heartfelt sympathies to Ron's family, such a heartbreaking loss for all who loved him. Ron was one of a million and will be deeply missed. Rest in peace my friend...

I never saw Ron without a smile on his face. He was a happy fun loving man, always ready to help anyone in need. His love of life showed daily on his face and his enthusiasm was easily passed to all who knew him. Even as Ron continued in pain, he never lost his ability to bring joy to others with his big smile. He never was one to talk about his problems and always looked to the positive. He could easily relate to his elders, his peers, and to the many young people he met during his life. I always saw Ron as a very dedicated working man who always offered a great job for a fair price. And to me he was always that little boy at heart who enjoyed everyday to the fullest. I for one will miss him and his smile! I thank June for all the love and care she provided Ron. My prayers to June, his children, his family, and all Ron's friends. He will be missed and remembered.
