To Ron Angood's family, my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of this wonderful, God loving man.  I met Ron in 1982 at the Maple View Complex.  He always had a big smile, and made you feel good just because he was that type of person.  Perhaps he was an Angel...I do know that he is now in heaven...healed, young, and riding a motorcycle.  I feel blessed to have known this man.  He will be waiting at heaven's door for you and for me.

We will always love you and we will miss you so very much.

My Deepest Sympathy goes out to Ron's Family & his many Friends he had touched during his life.  Ron used to come over to Ceres, NY to my Parents home. He would ride his motorcycle ~ have a cup of coffee, dinner, & then get both my parents to get their motorcycles out for a ride.  Then they using stop for Ice Cream somewhere.  Heaven has to have Streets of Gold just for all the '' CMA  Members '' to be riding on.  My Thoughts & Prayers go out to you in this time & the year to come.  Will miss You Ron at the Rally in the Valley. ~~  Sincerely,   Gordon D. Ford

I was so sad to hear of Ron's passing...He was a fighter if ever there was one; and a good friend to all he met along the way. Ron always had a smile even if he was having a bad day...We've known Ron for many years yet it seems like...not long enough. I will miss his jokes, confidence, biblical lessons, and those little phone calls and flowers through out the years that made long days tolerable. Ron you were a light among many darken days...Rest now and know you will always be a part of our lives...

Ron is a good man of God and we will miss seeing him on Sundays.  prayers to the family.

So sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was a great man, and will be sorely missed. He fought a good fight, and always had an amazing upbeat attitude in the midst of suffering. When I worked at the Alliance Church office, he was often called upon to fix things or run errands. One time, he took my car's dead battery to the shop and ended up bringing me back a new one, saving me the trouble of leaving work to do that task.  The world has lost a good man, and Heaven has gained. Prayers going up for all the family.
