  5. Ron, Dunkin donuts won’t be the same without you being there.
    You will be solely by the morning crew that got together every morning.

  6. Uncle Ron developed & nurtured a community of friends & family. He shared the Holloway boys’ dry & stealthy sense of humor, kept in touch with distant relatives through calls, holiday cards, generous gifts & the occasional teasing. I recall him talking about his babysitting responsibilities & trying not to sound too proud of his cherished role.
    He was well loved.
    Our hearts are with you.

  7. With great sadness we send our condolences to the family of Ron.
    He was a good friend an we enjoyed our Dunkin Donut chats along with other friends.
    We also went out to eat with Albert B.each veterans day an also went out to eat other times. He will be missed greatly
