Ron was a great friend, so sorry we didn't reunite sooner. He will be missed and constantly in my thoughts.

Ronnie and my dad (Tim C Lewis) had a special relationship. Besides being great friends they both loved to fish. I was pretty young back then but I know that Ronnie was like a son to my dad and he has been a great friend of our family through the years, as are all the Hyden family. Thoughts and prayers are with the family and may God bless.
