Ron passed away on July 13/14, 2012. As you will undoubtedly recall, Ron was the life of the party, a cheer leader, and always a supporter of virtually every Carroll activity - sports, plays, lectures, alumni, etc.
Ron battled different forms of cancer for several years. He lost his sight in his early 20's due to a stroke. Yet he was always valiant, upbeat, maintained a full career and remained very active in St. Augustine Church, located in NW DC. He was active in the choir, singing in two masses on Sunday. Approximately three months ago, Ron fell ill again, lost his ability to stand because of bone-related spinal cancer.
