I'm very sad that the world lost a man like Ron Oler.  He and his wife raised four great boys.  I coached Kenny in Colts baseball, and Doug and Tim, I taught in sixth grade at Williamsburg Elementary. I got to know Ron really well throughout those years.  I grew to know that he cared.  I'm sorry for all the families' loss for this loved one.
