We would love your favorite memories of Ron to be shared.

    Ron & Marian were among my very first “best friends.” In fact my brother Jeff Odom gave him the nick name “Munch.” When I introduced Ron to my brother (who was also small in physical stature) my brother was the bigger of the two and he said,”oh my gosh, he’s an F’n Munchkin.” And it stuck. Munch & Marion had many heartaches along the way, several seeming insurmountable and one right after the other. They hung on to each other. It bent them and very nearly broke them but love of family was powerful. They were the very best people and they were there for me. Ron, I am proud to know you and have so many memories of one of the best times in my life. Thanks Marion. Thanks Ron. Give Theresa my love.

    Here is a great man, his heart was bigger than life itself. He loved his family and friends more than anything and would do anything in his power for them. I’m truly lucky to have known him. Thanks for all the great memories. You truly will be missed.

    My condolences. I remember Ron in Junior high and high school as a good wrestler, and he inspired me to try out for the wrestling team in high school.
