Ron and I worked closely together at Western Electric / ATT until he retired. He was a mentor, friend, and golfing buddy who I will always think fondly of. Ron had a great sense of humor and was always trying to lighten the mood. He was never too busy to help a younger coworker like me and I know all of his coworkers at Western loved knowing and working with him. He loved his family and was always talking about his wife and children. When we had our daughter I could tell he loved talking about her and reliving some of his own fond memories. Ronald Gilbert was a wonderful man and he will be truly missed.
