Mr Spano was a great man. He really loved his family and always treated me like family. This world needs more men like him. He will be missed by so many. May he rest in peace knowing how much he was loved.

Dear Spano family it was a honor to have known Ronny. During my first year working at the Bureau of Forestry I learned a great many skills from Ronny. It is a blessing to have had him here with us for 76 years. May your family continue to have God's blessings during these days

To Joyce and all Ron's family, I am saddened by our loss. I say our, because it's not going to be the same around our Florida community, without this kind heart. Ron always came to our rescue with a joke or two, to cheer us up when we were not feeling all that cheerful. He was a kind, gentle, man, who touched the hearts of many. He might be out of sight but his spirit will live on in our hearts.

We send our thoughts and prayers to Cindy and all of Ron's family. He was one of the best joke tellers we have ever met. We'll miss him here in FL..

Although I was not directly related to Ron, he and the entire Spano family always treated me, my wife and children as his family. Ron was an inspiration and strength to many people is his life and will be truly missed. God bless him and his family.

Mr. Spano always made me feel like 'one of the family'. He always had a joke or two to share and he made me laugh every time I was ever around him. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to my brother and sister in law Dan and Betty Ann.

As long as I've known Ron Spano, the one thing I'll always remember about him is his love for his family. Family came first, everything else second.
