from Marc Pearl...

Ron was a one of the first legal policy experts that I met when I started working in the IT policy field almost a decade ago, and he immediately became a friend and mentor. He had a unique ability to chide and support a fellow colleague at the same time. His humor, his expertise, his creative approach to solving problems, and his warmth is what all of us who worked with him will always remember.

His efforts on global and federal IT and IP policy issues were outstanding. But what I remember most about our times together was when we would talk outside of Temple Sinai when our kids were in religious school years ago, or most recently, when he came to GW Hillel's High Holy Day services for the first time this year and we talked about finding 'just the right place' to work out one's spirituality.

I know how devastating this is for Barbara and Jeremy and Shelly, but also to his colleagues and friends at Piper Rudnick, particularly the "Robin" to his "Batman" - Jim Halpert. My prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to everyone. I wish you all strength in the knowledge that the good works and phenomenal humor of Ron will live in all of us who knew and worked and laughed with him for many years to come.
