  1. I would like to send my condolences to the family and friends of Ronald J. Mc Henry, and would like to share a comforting thought from the Bible in 1corth 15:26 And the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing. Sincerely Bea.

  2. To the family of Ronald J McHenry:
    He was a wonderful and joyful man. I enjoyed all of the stories he would retell. Your father had the greatest sense of humor and I was blessed to have gotten the chance to call him a friend. He will be greatly missed.❤️

  3. I met Ron and Pat at Buckley Busters, an exercise class, approximately 14 years ago. After our exercise class we went for what we called coffee and also ate at Burger King. A lot of good it did for us to exercise. He was full of stories which we all enjoyed. He was always smiling and joking. He will be missed there. Ron volunteered at the USO where he loved meeting and talking to his military family. His spare time was going to estate sales where if you were looking for something, he would find it for you. We will miss you Ron. Rest in peace.

  4. My sympathies and prayers.We appreciated Ron’s quality teaching and service….a great legacy! May G-d comfort his family and friends.
