 In Memory

I’m saddened to tell you that Ron was killed July 20, 1985, while walking at night in Springfield, Mass. Ron came from Holyoke Catholic High School to Amherst. He was an exceptional scholar, graduating with 39 courses. As a senior he was awarded the Obed Finch Slingerland Memorial Prize for the person who most appreciated an Amherst education. During his stay at Amherst he did volunteer work for the Urban League. He was the recipient of the Public Speaking Prize and graduated with a double major in political science and English. We will miss Ron, and the Class of ’76 extends their greatest sympathy to his wife.
