  1. I fondly remember Ron and his life partner, Kendra, from the Round Lake American Legion, Post 1170. Many good times, laughs…Ron and my ex-husband who was the Commander of the Post several years ago, had a running joke about Ron being “let out” (joking) for good behavior…..So he could go to the Legion bar. Kendra, Ron, and the entire American Legion were like family back then. My condolences to you, Kendra. I know besides your girls, he was the light of your life……..Cathy Becerra (And on behalf of Former Commander, Jose’ A. Becerra). God Bless!
