    For Ron’s Families: We began as colleagues and soon friends. Ron was an insightful psychologist with a focus for detail. Visiting at home watching his Syracuse Basketball was always a highlight of our times together, and opportunities to catch up with news of children. His memory will be forever a blessing, Danny Gottlieb

    Our thoughts are with Melanie and Arielle at this time. Ron’s incredible sense of humor will always be remembered. Even in the face of a debilitating illness, he soldiered on with positivity and resolve. He made the world a better place. Rest in peace, Ron. Barbara and James Goldberg
