At the age of 73, Ron called to say he wanted to attend the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain with me. He made the trip with his dear friends, Win and Dorothy Uebel, and as on every other occasion I was fortunate enough to be with him, it was a joy to be in his company as he waved to one and all. I am so glad to have the memory of those five wonderful days.

For the past 5 years or so, Ron and I were volunteers for the Broadcasters Foundation Golf Tournaments. I'm sure he did it longer than I did. What a joy it was to be around him. I first met Ron when I started at R&R in 1981, so we go back a long time. RIP, Ron. We'll all miss you.

I first met Ron as a student at the University of Miami. He was teaching a course on Broadcast Sales. At a time when I was not sure what path I would take, Ron had a profound impact on my direction. We developed a special relationship that lasted. His charm, personality and professionalism will be tough to match. He was a very special man and will be missed.

Ron Ruth was a real gentleman who was a passionate missionary for our industry. He defined the concept of “Company Man,” as he always put the interests of the RAB first, and added a great deal of personality and credence to this wonderful organization. He went out of his way to make you feel important, and he was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Ron had a great work ethic, a deep understanding of people, and a wonderful sense of humor, He will be deeply missed.
