  8. Lou Anne Carretto May 20, 2013 at 3:41 am

    Dear Kristine, Jessica and Abigail- I worked with Your Husband/Father many years ago at Ottawa National Bank. I only worked there for a couple of years. Then my husband and I bought Carretto’s Bar & Bowl. Ron was such a nice person and very helpful to all of us employed at the bank. Funny thing- Ron came to mind just last month when I was at Wallace school for a meeting and I saw Jessica’s plaque on the wall by the office. He was so very proud of his girls. Bob and I express our condolences to you and your family.

  32. Janet Walters DeFiori May 21, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    I was so sad to hear of Ron’s passing. I have not seen Ron since we graduated from high school. We all traveled our own paths and made our way in life. He was a really great guy and I considered him a friend. From knowing him in high school I know he must have been a good man, a wonderful husband and father. A quote from hallmark: “May the breeze whisper that life never ends, only that it is changed- That it continues forever in a world more beautiful than our words can describe. ” Rest assured he is with God now!

    I will keep his family in my thoughts and prayers as they move forward in life.

    Kristine, Jessica and Abigail,
    It has been many years since I last saw Ron. We worked together at Old Second Bank in Ottawa. My fondest memories of Ron are ones of laughter and pride. He sure knew how to tell a story and deliver the punch line, but the most important thing I remember about Ron is how much he loved his family. You girls were his heart and soul. My prayers are with you all. May God wrap his arms around your family and bring you peace and understanding. Blessings to you and your family.

  36. Michael May 22, 2013 at 7:02 pm
