Dan, Dave & Diane, Sorry to hear of your father's death. He was a big help to me when we started doing computer programming at McNamara and when I taught at KCC. Always gracious, patient and eager to lend a hand. Be well .... Jim Frogge

I worked with Ron in the Computer Services department at Kankakee Community College for many years. I learned a great deal from him concerning the hardware and software systems it takes run a community college. We spent many long nights and weekends working together to finish urgent projects. He was a trusted colleague and mentor to many of us.
