I just found out that Ronny had passed that was a shock. I hadn't seen Ronny in decades, but I first met him at Ramsey Jr. High and he was an athletic manager.

We became closer friends in high school with guys like Broadwater, Pugh, Rosson etc.

He was never short on an opinion and had a lot to say.

Ronny married Catherine McCann, who beat me in the election for Jr. Class President. We had a lot of good times together and I still remember Catherine teaching me about the value of "Busch" Beer.

Ron died March 26, 2006 in Tulsa, where he was an attorney. He and Katherine had two children. I was saddened to hear about his death. We lived across the street from each other, and I remember spending lots of time at his home building plastic airplane models, discussing the ongoing space explorations, and military history (Civil War and WWII). We played lots of football in his front yard, with Roger Pugh and several other neighborhood kids.

I lost Ron March 26th, 2006 after a short battle with cancer. Ron attended Georgia Institute of Technology where he graduated Summa Cu Laude with a degree in Business Mangement. In December of 1981 he received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas School of law. After joining the Oklahoma Bar Association he accepted a position with the law firm of Holliman, Langholz, Runnels & Dorwart. In 1993 Ron and his partner Neal Tomlins founded Tomlins and Goins Law Firm in Tulsa, OK., where he practiced Commercial Litigation until his death.
We have 2 children, Rob and Emily. He was very active in their sports and academic lives, attending all basketball and hockey games. Both kids participated in Speech and Debate while in High School and Ron spent countless hours judging rounds at tournaments. Ron was an avid golfer, something we did together. We had 26+ wonderful years together.

What a cheerful, smart guy. I'm very sorry to hear he's no longer with us, and my sympathy goes out to Catherine.  Ronny always had that funny bounce to his step when he walked, and I never heard him say a bad word about anyone.  I can picture him like it was yesterday. I'm very glad to have known him.
