Published in the Gloucester County
[NJ] Times on 4/27/2008.
Ron served as a Paratrooper in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from
1951 to 1954. Raised in Wellsville, N.Y., he graduated from Alfred
University, Alfred, N.Y., in 1958. He worked for the US Treasury as a
National Bank Examiner for the Office of Comptroller of Currency and
retired in 1989 after 25 years.
He was a former member of the West Deptford Lions Club and former member
of the Woodbury Country Club. Ron enjoyed playing golf. He was the
Captain of his college golf team for three years, Woodbury Club Champion
in 1971 and had several legitimate Holes in One. He had the uncanny
ability to recall all of his golf shots. Ron also prided himself in
observing golf etiquette and expected it from partners and opponents
alike. After he was no longer able to hit his drives “straight down the
middle,” he quit playing, ending a 50-year career.
Survived by his wife of 41 years Cheryl (nee Bennett), children R.
Larry, Jr. of Cordova, Tenn., Sheila (Rolf) Mikkelson of Auburn, N.Y.,
Brian of West Deptford, brother Glen of Wellsville, N.Y., sisters Jean
Grimes of Jersey Shore, Pa., Ruth Hoffstatter of Leander, Texas, and
grandchildren Justin, Nicklas, and Hannah.
