Condolence: My heart goes out to the entire Rautio family. I knew Ronnie through Kaarlo when we were in highschool. Ronnie was always such a fun loving guy who liked to joke around. He will be alive in our memories forever.
Condolence: Heartfelt prayers and deepest sympathies to Ron's family, friends and anyone saddened by this loss. Friends, school and Big Thunder brought us into the same circles and know he will be sadly missed by all.
Condolence: I was so saddened to hear of Ronnie's passing.
My deepest condolences to the whole family.
Laura,you will be in my thoughts and prayers.May God give you some comfort in the weeks and months to come.My heart goes out to you and your whole family.
Kaarlo,I am so sorry,I know there aren't any words that can offer you much comfort during this difficult time.Try to take some comfort in knowing that Ronnie will always be with you just in a different way.I too have recently been through a loss,my Dad passed away in a tragic accident back in October.
Just know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers for the months to come.
Condolence: I attended public school (Five Mile) with Ron for a number of years. While my sentiments regarding Ron's atheletic prowess echo those that have been described here, I would like to add that he was also, quite simply, a great individual. Unfortunately, I lost touch with Ron after those days, although I did run into him from time to time. Nonetheless, I've always considered him as a good friend of mine from grade school. I'm quite saddened to hear of his passing. My deepest condolences to his family.
