    To the Vogt family, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. I have fond memories of your father as he was a kind and friendly man. A real treasure from our ‘old’ neighborhood.

    Dear Ex-Neighbors: Your father was 9 days older than mine and always so energetic. I am so sorry he didn’t make it to 100. It seemed he would. I have fond memories of my brothers and sisters mooching peanut butter & jelly sandwiches in your kitchen with your mother and/or father laughing as the horde of locusts descended. I and my siblings will remember your Pop in our prayers..

    Dear family, we’ve had the privilege of living next door to Ron for the last 45 years. Always enjoyed being with and talking to Ron. He was always upbeat and kind, never having a disagreement. He will be missed. God bless you the family as you pass through this time.

    Dear Ron, Jr., Donna, Peggy, Carol and Tom (Bomber) — I wish you my sincere condolences on the loss of your father. He certainly was a wonderful man and there is little I can add to the tributes already posted here. Perhaps the longevity of his life may be attributed to the goodness of his heart for family, friends and neighbors. May he rest in peace and may you be consoled by fond memories of your loving father.

    Dear Vogt family – I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Ron certainly lived a full life and always had a warm welcome for family visits. I have fond memories of past Summers visiting Aunt Betty and Uncle Ron, swimming and just enjoying time with family. May God bless you and keep you in His care.
