REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering a classmate who paid the ultimate sacrifice

    Almost four years ago, the Ansonia High School Class of 1964, in it's 50 year class reunion, remembered Ron as a departed classmate.
    Some 55 years ago Ron was elected Senior Class President of our class. I played end while he played center on the football team. Always full of spirit, he was an inspiration to me then and atill is today.
    Rest in peace but but not forgotten.
