That Ron Newdoll would be doing what is best for everyone is no surprise to me. As a young man in San Angelo, Texas Ron had a significant impact on my life. Ron is one of those guys like you almost never meet! Ron always talked about doing you're very best, doing what is right and always remembering that you are the person you had to look at in the mirror each morning.
Ron always set the bar pretty high! He was a "task master" to everyone around him but more so on himself. I will always be grateful for the advice and counsel he provided to a young, impressionable teenager. While my life took a different turn (I am now a practicing CPA in Roswell, New Mexico) from electronics, the basic knowledge of electronics benefited greatly as the accounting profession was married to computers in the 80s and 90s.
While I have not seen Ron for almost 40 years, I still remember the principles he held so dear and openly for everyone to see. There was no mistaking Ron's position and you almost new he was almost always right.
