Sad to hear of the passing of Big Foot. Ron was a joy to be around and a prankster extraordinaire. I had the privilege to work with him in the Tool-room at Maytag and “let” him hand me a drubbing or ten when shooting. I will have to make sure I check the handrails to the pearly gates, to make sure there isn’t any Prussian blue. My condolences to the family, he will be missed but not forgotten.
