I’m not sure if your loved one is the same man that I worked with breifly, when I was seventeen during the summer of 1971, as a custodian at the Howard Johnson’s motel on the Lincoln Highway. That Ronald went by the nickname “Pat”. He was charged somewhat with training me, and he was always very helpful. I’m sorry about your loss.
