Ron died Nov. 16, 2019, after a long illness. He came to Princeton with the Class of 1972 from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Va. An exceptional student, Ron graduated in three years with high honors in chemistry and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. His extracurricular activities included a research assistantship, the Student Volunteers Council, and IAA sports. He lived in Pyne senior year and belonged to Stevenson. 

After Harvard Medical School, he completed his internal medicine residency at Boston City Hospital and a fellowship in hematology/oncology at Stanford University. He married Ruth Margulies in 1973 and had two sons, Michael ’01 and Steven. Both followed him in medical careers. Ron practiced oncology in the private sector in Worcester, Mass., for 20 years. In 1996 he completed additional training in geriatric oncology and public health after moving to Atlanta, Ga.

After a divorce in 2015, Ron married Ceci Miranda in 2016. He and Ceci retired to Eugene, Ore., in 2017 and spent Ron’s final years cheering on the Oregon Ducks (except when they played Princeton). Ron was a kind spirit with a witty and improvisational sense of humor. To Ceci, Michael, Steven, five grandchildren, and other family and friends, the class extends deep condolences.
