RIP Ron Quayle - Past President of NAMA and Co-founder of the Greater Washington Manx Area Society

A letter from Ron's daughter Jill.

Ron Quayle passed away today, Thursday, October 28, at 3:45 p.m. at home surrounded by Mom, Rob (son), and me (his daughter Jill) as he passed.

Know that we are relieved that he is at peace after putting up a strong, brave struggle against the cancer.  We are thankful for two wonderful years with him after his diagnosis.  We will miss him dearly but know that he’ll watch over us.

We thank everyone for your kind words, love, and support through Ron’s battle with cancer.  

We are so fortunate to be blessed with wonderful friends and family.

Ron will be cremated and be released into Casco Bay in the future – along with Mom when she’s ready to go.  We expect to have a Celebration of Life for Dad in Northern Virginia.  No date or place has been set.

Love,

Margaret, Rob, and Jill

I'll post more when I know more. In the meantime may I extend the sympathies of the Manx community in North America to Margaret, Rob, and Jill. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ron was a lovely man and will be missed by all who knew him. I invite readers to submit their best memories of Ron, especially any from past NAMA Conventions.
