“Ron was a passionate public servant and a strong advocate for Texas values, his neighbors in North Texas, and constituents across Texas’ 6th District,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “A sixth-generation resident of Tarrant County, he was a Texan first and foremost, and we saw that every day as he put his community first.  My heart goes out to his wife, Susan, and his children and grandchildren, whom I hope find solace in his legacy of service.”
