My condolences to Ron’s family. As a young ironworker, I had the privilege of working with Ron, his father, brother and uncles out of Local #89. Ron was a good man, teacher, friend and professional Ironworker.
I was very sorry to hear about Ron's passing. I spent a lot of time learning the ropes of Iron work from the Ellis family and Ron particularly. While I hadn't seen him recently, I still think of him and our times together often. We spent more than a few years working and playing together. To all the Ellis family I am very sorry for your loss. He is missed.
My sympathy to Ron's family. Although he was among the oldest cousins in my fathers family and I was younger I also remember him from family gatherings. Full of life. I also remember he stopped by our house once when Scott and Chris were quite young. Dad had just poured fresh cement that day off the porch. Scott jumped right in. Everyone had a good laugh. Cousin Laura Stuckey Schott.
Condolences to the family. Ron was a good man and will be greatly missed.

So sorry to hear of the loss of Ronnie. He was one cousin that you did remember despite not seeing him for a few years. Sending good thoughts and prayers to all of you. Jim and Jan Callahan Barnes
Scotty, my condolences to you and the extended family. I will always remember the passion Ron had for his Union and the duties it entailed. He was a friend and I enjoyed our comradery over the many years I was secretary at Local #89. He could make me laugh to bring joy to my day at the office. Sending hugs to you. "ma'
All the years that I have known your dad he was full of strength, passion with the trade of Local #89 and lived life to the fullest.
Our thoughts are with you Scott, Chris and family.
