I will never forget my first year at GMA. I was kind of wowed by the whole experience and after the William Morris Agency lunch the artists were gathered around and were talking to everyone. I was standing around, and Ron came up to me and introduced himself and asked me where I was from and we talked for about 5 minutes. He was telling me about how he was a youth pastor before he joined Storyside. He also introduced me to the other guys in the band.
It was cool that in the years following I would always seem to cross paths a couple of times during the week. He always recognized me more by face than by name, but he was always very nice and friendly. He was a great musician and a great guy. He will be missed. Please keep his wife Rebecca, and his bandmates, Lucio, Preston and Jordan in your prayers.
