Ron has been a very special person and friend to me for several years now. Not a day went by when he didn’t ask how I was doing or how my animals were doing. Always so kind and considerate to me. I had the pleasure of working w him many times over the years in therapy and I will forever miss our walks and talks. “Quantity not quality, right”. His joke that never got old to me ?. Thank you for the memories Ron. I am blessed to have so many.

Since I learned of Ron passing, I find myself thinking of you and your family and how much we will all miss Ron. I am comforted because I am one of the lucky ones whose life was touched by this very special man. I join you and the many others who will miss Ron, but I remain grateful still for having known him.we had fun at the park theater in north Canton.

Ron was a dear friend and valued manager for Dick and Abby Reding. He was a 35 mm film projectionist for their many different theatres including the Lynn Auto Theatre in Strasburg Ohio. and the Twilite, that was south of New Philadelphia. Indoor theatres included the Myers Lake, Park, State, and Carosel theatres in Canton Ohio. He was a loyal employee and friend of the Reding family. Willing to do anything from office work to dressing up as Santa! We will never forget the hard work and sacrifice Ron did to keep the film reels spinning for decades. Many people enjoying the show not knowing the wizard behind the curtain was Ron. His service in the Navy and Scouting will never be forgotten either. From Rich & Jamie Reding & family.
