Memories of Ronald
Ronnie Fox was my cousin. I never met him. He perished 7 years before I was born. My father identified him at the morgue by the Indian ring he wore every day. His mother, Sue (Gurrieri) Fox, was my father's sister and is now deceased.
    -- (Rick Gurrieri, Cousin)
Ronny was my cousin. His Father Phil was my great uncle. My Grandfather Tony Comparetto had to identify his body, along with my great grandma Mary Desimone. We love Ronny and miss him very much. I know his death tore my great uncle Philly up inside.
    -- (Rebecca Vilches, Cousin)
He was my cousin and my namesake and he passed before I was born. All I know about him is that my uncle was only identify his body by a piece of jewelry, and that he died heroically trying to save some children.
