  2. Ron has been a friend for many, many years. He was out to the farm quite a bit helping dad ( Melvin “bud” Rode) fix combines . He was a great mechanic and did an awesome job restoring tractors. He was always smiling, always had a joke – we had many laughs throughout the years. I always had fun with him- I’m gonna miss seeing him around
