    Ron was one of the Cougar team players that whether they knew it or not; took me in a kind of like a little brother when my home life was very challenging. I was the batboy for the Cougs in those years that Ron starred for WSU. I can remember all of the lineup names to this day and with Buck the coach as kind of my second father; I came through the dark times and live happily today formally as an “Adopted Cougar.”I am so sad at hearing of Ron’s passing but blessed to have been part of the Cougar family. Thank you Ron for being there when I needed it the most.❤️
