This really sucks. Never met him and he was a strictler, but you could count on him. He will be missed. His heart is beating Tiger blue somewhere.

I am so so sorry to hear this......my sincere condolences to you and your family. I met your Dad at a football function years ago and although we didn't always agree on all things, I did respect and appreciated his passion. He will be able to now be with a lot of tiger fans, players and coaches from the past. RIP Ronnie. God bless.

That is just terrible we lost a great Tiger with his passing. I truly hate to hear that; I very much enjoyed meeting him and seeing him at Tiger Baseball games. My sincere condolences to his family.

I am so sorry to hear this. He and I talked often by PM, and he was my friend. I will miss him very much.

Ronnie was a good man, and one of the best Tiger fans I ever met. My condolences and best wishes to his family, for peace and comfort in such a time.

My prayer for your dad has been said. I wish the best for you and your family during this difficult time. I agreed with GA on the strict
colors of the correct blue and gray for our Tigers. Once again condolences on your loss.

Wow that's a shock. I'm sorry he never got to see us in a major conference, he certainly deserved it.

So sorry to hear the sad news. Admired your dad, conversed with him privately on this forum several times. May the Good Lord comfort you & your family.
