I never saw Ronnie in court while he practiced in Dallas - our practices did not seem to cross paths.  For years, Ronnie lived in Duncanville, where I also lived.  I used to see him and his dad at restaurants on weekends.  I think his dad had moved in with him a few years before his death.

Randy, I always felt that Ron Edmondson was a "class act." I knew he lived in the DFW Metroplex, but not much else. I wish we could reach all DFW classmates so that they would come to our "mini-reunions." Those are so much fun. We have such great friends in the Class of 1965.

Ronnie used to pick me up on Friday nights in his 1952 Cadillac and we would go to the football games to watch the Fighting Pampa Harvesters!!  I always admired how emaculatly clean his car was and I was fascinated by the push button transmissions on the dash.

I sat next to Ronnie Iin two or three classes and no one would have thought we were friends, but we were. I loved his extremely bright mind, perhaps the brightest of us all, his dry humor, and his infinite patience with a girl who must have seemed rather dizzy to him!!!

Ron was one of my very best high school friends. I spent many hours in that great push button Cadillac and at his house. His parents were wonderful to me. I made a mistake in signing up for physics.  I wouldn't have made it without Ron's help on our nightly physics homework problems.  Ron was also a good bass singer. He sang in the church Youth Choir and should have been in school choir.  Three years ago on a Mission Trip to Ukraine, I sat down to lunch with a Music Minister from Corsicana. He found out I grew up in Pampa and immediately asked if I knew Ron. I discovered that Ron had been one of his best friends and one of the key members of his choir and the church.  What a small world and what a great man was Ron Edmondson!

When my family moved to Pampa right before my senior year I was one of the only NEW kids that year. I met Ronnie in journalism class and he was such a  good friend...I loved his laugh. He always had time to talk and a smile for  everyone.

Later in the year he took me to the movies in the Cadallic....what a treat. He also took me to the senior banquet...we had a great time!  He is one of my best memories of the whole year!

I'm a bit late in joining in the comments about Ron (or Ronnie) Edmondson, partly because others have already shared their stories that show what a great friend he was to many of us throughout our school years in Pampa.  I first met Ronnie in 7th grade at the real Pampa Junior HIgh School, the one downtown, and we had classes together from then through to the end of high school.  From the first he was one of those few people who could always brighten my day.  And his parents were welcoming to all who came to their house to visit.  He is and will be missed.

What beautiful tributes to Ronnie Edmondson. I know he was so loved and I am sure he felt the love reciprocated over and over again. I didn't know his parents but sure wish I had! I never rode in his Cadillac wtih the "push button transmission" but when John and I were at North Texas State University (now UNT), he had a "push button transmission" in his big Desoto with "the tail fins!" He let me drive it and some who saw the Florida license tag (since his parents moved to Tallahassee at the time we started college), my friends thought I said I was from "Tampa" for well-known "Tampa, Florida." Alas, most of them never had heard of Pampa, Texas - unless, of course, they were from Amarillo. Memories bring back smiles!

The memory of Ron and Randy Matson wrestling in the gym will always be one my all tilme favorites.  He was a great friend and will be missed by all who knew him.

Ronnie Edmondson was a very fine person! I knew him from school. He had a great personalty and sense of humor. I knew he would be very successful at what ever he tried to do.
