Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 50 year-old airline captain and live in Fort Worth, Texas. I fly the 550-mph Embraer 145 Regional Jet, an absolute blast to fly. I have dreamed about this career since I was a small boy.

I've always loved cemeteries so I was happy to discover Findagrave a few years ago and it's been one of my favorite web sites ever since. I always wondered where famous people were buried and Findagrave has them all, from the super famous to the obscure 19th century politicians and stage actors. At the same time I was thrilled to find a place to memorialize my parents, friends and pets who have passed on.

Thanks to everyone who has left flowers and notes for my loved ones. It really does mean a lot to me.

RE: Charles Leon
Hi Ron,

it was my pleasure to be able to sponsor your uncle's memorial page! I don't remember ever reading about him, but I see his page has been there for several years. Very sad that he was only 25 years old... I added him to one of my virtual cemeteries so I can visit him often.

Happy Hanukkah and New Year, Ron! :)

I see that you left a flower for Jack snow. I remember him playing for the rams I had his cards and everything. Could you please visit the following people. My friend Cynthia who I sponsor went to michigan state when Legendary football coach Duffy daugherty 24817256 coached his last season and Brad van pelt 33971483 was a senior her dad Harold was a korean war veteran. I would appericate it and please let me know if there is anybody that needs a flower.

Steven Whitmire...
Thanks much Ronald for leaving a note for Steven Whitmire. It was very nice what you said. I created that right after Steve passed away in 2007.
He definitely was a good guy. Most people who he came in contact with liked him because of the personality he had. He was laid back and easy to get along with. It's been 5 years already and we all still think of him often. Thanks again for the note. I appreciate it much!!

Ron, I rarely leave messages but I just had to tell you how blessed you were to have such a wonderful Dad. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all children were so blessed.

Hi Ron,

I am the individual who sponsored Mac's page - I did not know him, but was just touched by your story, and the I supposed to ask you to transfer the page? I would rather you keep it, and keep an eye on it, so to speak, since he is so close to your own heart...but you are more than welcome to transfer it to me, if it helps in any way, or if you are too busy to check in, much.

Lastly, love the idea of your job - I grew up in the early '70s' when young women still were not really all that welcome in the commercial aviation field, or believe me, I'd have been right up there, too, about now, tipping a wing hello your way. ha! Luckily, I went into something pretty cool in itself - writing -, and so if I wanna fly a plane, I just whip up a story and the characters! =)

Anyhow, thank you for your time and for posting Mac - I love stories about the working man, whom I continue to believe is the backbone and hope of this country.

You're So Welcome, Ronald
Yes, Buddy is a fun-loving little guy. Loves his walks and car rides. We adopted him seven months after Rusty passed away. (I love the Poms.) Buddy is more laid back than Rusty. Guess dogs, like people can have different personalities. Hope all is well with you.

Your Dad
Hi Ron, I know you don't know me but I just lost my dad a month ago and I was randomly reading the obits and found your fathers. What stuck out for me was your dad was only a week older then mine and he also died of lung cancer too. We grew up in the same time era and my dad was in the korean war too with the coast guard. Im so sorry to hear though you lost when when he was in his sixties. You talk so highly of your dad and the love you have for him is wonderful. He seems like a really great guy. Unfortunately, my dad and I had some issues. I feel cheated cause I didnt get the time to resolve those issues with him. When we found out he only had a few months also. I was also the only one in the room when he past. Im wondering was he trying to tell me something. I kept telling him I loved him. I also think this web site is great! I come and talk to my grandparents sometimes that I have added. Maybe this will help me with my dad. THanks for listening, hope I didnt bore you.

RE: Thanks
You are very welcome, I know it's hard when they leave us, can be heart breaking, but I can't imagine life without them. Take care, Denise
