I will miss Ron's sense of humor and his compassion for others. He could tell when something was not right with a person by the tone of their voice. He had the gift to change that in a matter of seconds. I am blessed that although I never personally met Ron I had the honor of knowing him through our conversations through work. His family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.

My Friend Ron- It was always an adventure when I rode with you. I will truly miss you!! You had a heart of gold and would give the shirt off your back for anyone. Even the ones hanginig in your car that you needed to change into after a good meal, to impress your U.S. Cellular clients. I never knew where we where going to eat on our days together, but you were the socialite of the town where ever we went!! You always made my smile even when you were having a rough day. It was such a pleasure to know you. I miss talking to you on the phone, although we all know that you liked to talk, I really miss you and know you are having a great time.

Ron, my friend, how my heart is breaking at the news of your passing! I do not know if you know how much we here in Tulsa (US Cellular) looked forward to talking to you, but we did! You know your calls have created many an argument on who got to talk to “my sweetie”. I loved talking to you every day and really miss you I feel that a part of my family has passed from my life and left a VERY BIG hole there. Your pain and struggle has stopped and I know in my heart you are in a much better place. I hope you know how your heart of gold touched so many of us here and how truly you were loved by us. I miss our wonderful colorful conversations, and I am sorry that we did not get to meet you in person. You are a remarkable person my friend, the world has lost one of the most kind and gentlest persons I have ever know! Even though my threats of drugging you and bringing you up here to Tulsa for all “your girls” to take care of never happened know this I MEANT EVERY WORD!! I love you and miss you! To the family I am very sorry for your loss I cannot imagine not having him there with his wit and humor you are in my prayers. God Bless you all.

March 19, 2010 | Shelbie Talley - Tulsa, Oklahoma -- United States

My prayers go out to all that loved Ron. I spoke with him on a regular bases and he will be deeply missed.

March 17, 2010 | Katie Sutton - Lewiston, Maine -- U.S.

Hey Ron, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything that you did for us girls at Wireless Warehouse. You were always in such a good mood and so generous. You definitely have one of the biggest hearts out there. I will never forget how you would always call us and see if we wanted anything from Rolly's when you were in the neighborhood. I'm going to miss getting phone calls from you when you would forget how to program a certain phone. I'm sure we will see each other again some day. Take it easy Ron. You are loved and will be missed deeply. You are one person that won't soon be forgotten. <3

Ron, I almost called your phone today to hear your cheery voice. No I was looking in my US Cellular folder and found your letter stating that you were going to be retiring by the end of the year. It brought a tear to my eye. CN Brown in South Paris is a business client of Ron's and I worked with Ron for a few years. When I got the position of running the cell phone portion of the job Ron took me under his wing and guided me right through everyhing till I learned exactly what I needed to do and understand the lingo of cellphone talk. Ron I will miss working and our weekly sometimes daily talks. Miss you lots,

March 17, 2010 | Melissa Bailey - Richmond, ME -- USA

Ron it has been a few years and I can't believe you are now at rest. I will always remember the laughs and stories we shared at US Cellular. Oh ya the venting also. I saw you as a man that would never quit or give up. I guess you can say you were hard headed:-)
You will be missed by many but you now have your new journey!

March 16, 2010 | Mary Jane Parker - Leeds, ME -- USA

Family of Ron, So sorry for your loss. I will remember Ron from the race track. He really loved betting on the horses. He sold me my US Cellular phone and kept trying to get me to upgrade but I told him I like the one I have - he use to laugh. He would always sponsor or buy raffle tickets to help anyone out. He will be missed. Ron now you can bet on my dad and sit with mom.

Hey Unc, Rest in Peace my friend. There are way too many memories to list, you will always be in my heart and soul. There is nothing more to say. Will miss you ALOT.

March 16, 2010 | erica davis - lewiston, maine -- usa

im glad i got that last chance to see you at the hospital with zan. it meant something to me and i know it meant something to your niece. you were in good spirits and happy to see all your friends and family but that is no surprise, you loved people and were so thoughtful. thank you for all the things you did for all of us at the lewiston and auburn stores as well as the hockey games and tickets. you will be dearly missed and forever in my prayers. rest in peace.

March 16, 2010 | Jaime Brochu - Minot, Maine -- USA

Ron, I look back and find myself laughing at all those times you needed help programming a Blackberry, or transferring contacts for a business customer. In return you would buy all of us at work lunch and or ice cream in the summer time. I cant express how thankful I am for what you have done for not only me but my family as well. As a very generous person you were, you would always over pay me for helping you out with programming phones. Thank you for all that you have done for me and you will be greatly missed by everyone and often thought about. We love you.

March 16, 2010 | Reyna Leeman - Lewiston, Maine -- USA

I only knew Ron for a short time but the time I knew him was a great one. He had a huge heart & used to make my day when he used to call us up at the lewiston store & ask what we wanted from Rolly's for lunch. He was always good to his US cellular girls, thats for sure. He will be missed and never forgotten. Im so glad hes not suffering anymore though.

March 15, 2010 | Doug Miller - Boothbay, Maine -- USA

Ron Boothby was my friend and co-worker for over 6 years. He was a kind, honest and fun loving man. You could not meet Ron and not get to know him on a personal level. He was just that kind of rare individual.

I was his Agent Account Executive for a year and used to have to ride with him at least once a month. He would always want me to chauffer him around in his big Cadillac and then harass me about driving to fast. I would tell him to be quiet and that he couldn't criticize my driving since he had already christened the Caddy by rear ending some poor soul and crinkling the hood. He would laugh and keep on telling me to, "Slow it down Kid."

When my house was robbed 6 years ago and I was trying to file my insurance claim Ron drove me to Auburn to personally file my claim at Concord Insurance. He told me by delivering it in person I would hopefully get my money faster.

I will also never forget the time I was having lunch with Ron, Bob Pond and Chuck Dutton at a restaurant I believe in Lewiston. I can't remember why but Ron had a present for Bob Pond; it was either Bob's birthday or going away present, I cannot remember. Ron insisted Bob open the present at the table in the restaurant. I knew it was gonna be good - Bob opened a leopard spotted thong in about a size 8X that would wrap around him at least 4 times. Chuck wanted to crawl under the table and I couldn't help but roar with laughter. This was Ron at his finest. I know Bob and Chuck must both remember this lunch meeting fondly.

And who can talk about Ron and not think of his longtime association with U.S. Cellular. Ron had close and loyal relationships with almost all of his customers. He was always talking on the phone with customers whether it was Monday or Saturday. And every Christmas he bought his biggest and oldest customers little holiday gifts.

Ron was also very proud and close to his nephew Tyler. I traded school pictures with Ron - he gave me a picture of Tyler and I gave Ron a picture of my daugher Kaiser. Tyler and Kaiser are the same age and have the same study habits in school.

I did not get to visit Ron before his sudden and very sad death. This bothers me very much and I wish I had gotten the chance to say goodbye. I hope he knows how much he meant to me and to his U.S. Cellular family. He has made a mark on my life and I will never forget him.

My prayers go out to his family for their loss.

Sorry to read of Ron's death. May those he loved have good memories of him.

March 15, 2010 | Michelle Taylor - South Paris, Maine -- US

Wow Ron I cant believe it. I heard today when I came into the office from Bremner. I just talked to you a week or so ago and you were telling me you were going home the week of the 22nd of March. I never got to say it againe so I will say it now,"Stay out of troable and you need that good women to take care of you." You were the best sales rep and I will miss you. You are pain free now and can do anything that you want. To you family I am so sorry for your loss. To Ron's nephew I think I know more about you then I do about my own kids. LOL No your Uncle Ron did nothing but talk about you and what a good kid you are. Time will heal and you are all in my thoughts and prayers

March 15, 2010 | Terry Turner - Norway , ME -- United States

Ron, I will surely miss your calls and your smile when you came to visit. Also, we liked to spar with each other out of fun, we always knew we could get a laugh out of each other. Sorry that the damned Diabetes got you, it is a horrible disease. I will miss seeing you at work and at the horse track. Rest in peace dear friend til we meet again. Affectionately called by you- Mrs. Turner

We were so saddened by Ronnie's passing.We have known him for a long time.We all grew up in the same neighborhood and have many memories.He will be missed by a lot of people.Our condolences to the family.We're thinking of you all.

March 13, 2010 | Donita St John - South Paris, Maine -- USA

I am very sad with the passing of my friend Ron. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Ron was our rep for U S Cellular at Community Concepts and he always went above and beyond to take care of our accounts. Many times he would show up with what was needed within an hours call. Service with a smile always. He was always only a phone call away. I will miss the weekly calls checking to see if I was all set. Miss you Ron. Sincerly Donita

March 13, 2010 | Deb Heroux - Lewiston, Maine -- usa

I have known Ron for many years. I first met him at Sim's Restaurant and then around town and of course OTB. I always enjoyed Ron, he was a nice man who I liked talking to. I even bought a couple of phone from him! God Bless and may he rest in peace.

March 13, 2010 | Pamela Thoits - Lewiston, Maine -- Androscoggin

I enjoyed baking bread for him,his sense of humor and his smile.
