I worked at the Johnstown Post Office and knew Ron from work. What a great guy he was and a friend to all. My deepest sympathy to his family and loved ones.

My heart is heavy as our dear friend Ronnie has received his Angel Wings.

Ive known Ronnie all my life and if there was ever a person who lived life to the fullest it was him.

The Mlinarchiks lived beside my family for over 55 + years. Many conversations were had across the lawns, as well as wise cracks and laughs.

Lindsey loved spending time with him and Anna Marie and called them family

Ronnie always kept John and I laughing with his stories and he knew what to say to push my Dads buttons. They were great friends.

Saying You will be missed is an understatement

I met Ron and Anna years ago when Annas mother was our patient. Ron and Anna were so sweet and kind. Working for Windber Hospice I saw Ron many times over the years. He was always so respectful of our dear patients and treated them with dignity and was very kind and loving to their families. He was always smiling and everyone really appreciated him (our staff and our patients family members). He definitely had a loving heart and will be missed. May God comfort his dear family at this time.

Marie Haggerty, RN - Windber Hospice Oct 19 2020 12:00 AM

Ron was such a great person. He was so friendly and kind, always with a big smile. Rest In Peace, Ron. You will be missed.
