I was so saddened to hear of Rons passing. My sympathy goes out to his family. For the years that I lived in Shelby and had the tire store in Avoca, we always exchanged a good laugh and a few stories over the years. I have nothing but very fond memories from knowing him over those years. Shelby has lost one of its finest & truest gentleman.
