  1. In the late sixties into the early seventies there were a group of us that were always together – this included Ron, who to us, was “Bo” or “Bowman”. A lot of time was spent hanging out at the West 11th Street Hill Train Station. Cannot count the number of times the window in the Ticket Office was innocently broken while the guys played touch football in the small grassed area beside the station. We all have very special memories of this time in our lives, and “Bo” will be joining several others of our group who have previously passed. My heartfelt condolences to Ron’s family and friends.

  2. “Bo” was probably the nicest person I have ever met. I knew him in our younger wilder days and feel so very fortunate to have reunited with him in Beaver Falls in May 2010 as I live in California now. It was as if the decades we hadn’t seen each other never existed. I will treasure that night forever. He was such a genuine man and my heart goes out to his family and anyone and everyone that has ever known him. I only wish I had been able to be more a part of his life and spent more time with him, he will be truly missed. God Bless…

  3. Bow was one of my favorite people that I had the pleasure of working with at Alaron Corporation 10 years ago. RIP Bow, you were a genuinely caring, loving man.
