    My thoughts and prayers are with you Connie and family. Ron was a great guy that I saw when you were leaders in Youth Fellowship at Ebenezer 25 or so years ago, when they did great things for those kids. Some was their first experience knowing God. You have my deepest sympathy

    Ron was one of the nicest and soft spoken gentlemen I have ever known.

    Praise be to the Lord, Ron is in the last best place...right in the arms of our Lord & Savior Jesus.

    I miss you buddy, but I'll see you when I get there

    Aunt Connie and the rest of the Bader clan, please accept my deepest sympathies on the passing of a great man, Uncle Ron. I can remember the various things that we would do when we visited all of you in Chicago, and later on, when I went to Oregon when I was in the military. The smell of the pipe, his smile and the love that Uncle Ron had was infectious. He's in God's comforting arms now, visiting with those who have gone before and are welcoming him into Heaven. Uncle Ron, Rest in Peace.

    Dear Connie, we are so sad for you;  you and Ron played such a big part in the success of the GWYC.  One of my favorite memories was the year you ran the pier party...a rainy day...and unusual delicacies.  Fun.  You and Ron were always so positive and fun to be with.  One of our memories was everyone's attempt to find the "Gotcha flag."  Know why no one could find it?  Because we had it;  we could never catch anyone to pass it on.  

    Our hearts go out to you, Connie.  Please take care.  Sue and Don Glaze

    Dear Connie,

    We are so very sorry to hear of Ron's death.  He was a wonderful individual and always kind, thoughtful and fun to be around.  He is a person I truly looked up to and wish I could emulate.    We remember you both fondly from the days on the lake and social events of the great GWYC.   He was a excellent captain and almost unbeatable in a race.    Please accept our deepest sympathy to you and your family.   I'm sure Ron will find plenty of crew while he waits on the dock for the rest of us.

    God Bless You,

    Judy and Ken Witcher

    Dear Connie & Family,

    We remember our good times being all together in our winters in  Florida.  We now know Ron is healthy and pain free with the Lord.   May you find comfort & strength in each other and in faith of God.  We will miss all the fun we use to have.

    Our sincere sympathy,

    Our thoughts are with Connie and Ron's children/grandchildren.  Ron was a great person to spend time sailing with and against.  We regularly kibitzed back and forth.  I always enjoyed time with him.  We are glad that we got to see him and Connie a few times after he started coming to Florida.  He will be missed.

     Sending our sympathy, we have so enjoyed our association with your family through Molly and Jennifer's  long standing friendship.

    Ron will be sorely missed as you treasure great memories.

    Mike, Judy, Molly, Katie
