Mr. Ron was not just a neighbor he was our family. He was always smiling and always willing to help. Mr. Ron treated Larkin like an extended grandchild and for that we will be eternally grateful. He was always willing to play football or basketball, let Larkin take him and Chance for a ride in the gator or just sit in the yard and visit. He never missed a holiday or special occasion. He loved supporting Larkin at his football games, and we loved him being there. If our garage door was open, we knew he would soon be over because Chance was already there. Mr. Ron was loved, and he is missed every day. Tell Chance we love him too!

All our love,
Larkin, Paula & Rosa

My heartfelt condolences to the entire Gurnsey family, from Marianne Lattarulo Ziegler, a long-time neighbor from Highland Drive in Gang Mills, now living in North Carolina, via Florida. I have fond memories of Ron, he was a fine gentleman. I think we last met up about eight years ago when I was visiting the Corning area. I was able to visit with Winnie then, and Ron happened to be there at the same time. Rest in peace, Ron. Marianne
