« Five miles from Salem city limits, our neighborhood is unserved by broadband | Main | I don't believe in free will. Here's why. »

Ron has been my property line neighbor for over 20 years. We have shared pets-Missie who adopted him and he re-named Moochie. He was older than my husband and I and yet was so welcoming and a great mentor! I am an Independent politically, and whenever I was unclear about a candidate or a bill, I ALWAYS CALLED RON for insight! He never ever told me how I should vote but would send me links or educate me on current issues/affairs.

We are a 100% military family (both retired now and recently) and Ron was a huge supporter. When my husband was deployed with the military or traveling internationally I could rely on Rob for physical or moral support. The same went for my husband when I deployed or traveled.

What is NOT mentioned is Ron had a partner in his life. I actually don’t recall her name but she was a beautiful and caring woman who brought a life t of happiness to him and his home.

We will miss you Ron! Thanks for your service to this country and city!

What a loss to come home to. I had been away and was so sad to hear about Ron's death. The man had an unbelievably broad set of interests and devotion to life and friends. He I knew him from many whitewater rafting trips and always looked forward to sharing the rivers with him.

Amazing to read about his full life of travel and his weighty stewardship to his home whether it be during the years at the University of Oregon or in Salem. A gutsy guy with a soft voice who was driven with the sense of doing the right thing on the planet. Ron Eachus leaves an empty space in many rafter's hearts.
