Ron died April 15, 2023, in Cincinnati. He was 86.

He came to Princeton from Withrow High School, where he participated in intramural sports and was a member of the glee club and student council. At Princeton, Ron majored in chemistry and sang with the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club. He belonged to Dial Lodge. In the spring of 1957 he left Princeton to attend the University of Cincinnati, where he was a member of the Class of 1959 and majored in economics. He earned an MBA from Xavier University and a law degree from Chase College of Law — both in Cincinnati. Most of his career was spent with the Internal Revenue Service’s appellate division as chief of appeals.

In 1959, Ron married Marcia Ann Droste, and they had two children, Lynne and Kevin, and five grandchildren.

Ron still has ties to Princeton and his essay appears in the 50th-reunion yearbook. The class extends its deepest sympathy to them all.
