Ron died May 2, 2022, in Philadelphia.
Born in Washington, D.C., he came to us from William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, where he lived most of his adult life. At Princeton, he majored in biology, was on the staff of the Prince, and was a member of the French Club, the Music Club, the Whig-Clio Society, the Hillel Foundation, and the Pre-Med Society. He took his meals at Court Club and roomed with Ed Dubrow and Peter Rosenberg.
Following a medical degree at Penn, Ron took postgrad training in internal medicine, hematology, and oncology at Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia, interrupted by military service, which included a year in Vietnam. After practicing in Washington, he and his family relocated to Philadelphia, where he managed a large long-term care facility and served as consultant to the Social Security Administration. He had a deep, lifelong interest in music, having been a proficient classical pianist earlier and regularly attending concerts and the opera.
He is survived by his wife, Beth; daughter Lauren and her husband Gary Rosenfield; and granddaughter Daniella.
